If you’re not on Twitter, you may have missed that Patriots linebacker Matthew Judon has been playing the role of recruiter in free agency.
Judon wasted no time tweeting at many of the biggest names on the open market in the NFL, even before free agency week kicked off for 2022. It obviously could just be tongue-in-cheek playfulness with no impact whatsoever, but if that’s the case, at least Judon is having fun. Can’t say the same for about 99 percent of all Twitter users.
Many of those same tweeters have been reacting strongly and impatiently to the Patriots’ lack of activity in NFL free agency so far. But at the same time, it’s only been 3 1/2 days. And as you can see from the list of players to get a Twitter shoutout from Judon, there are still numerous players available who would make a real difference if they signed with New England.
A couple of Judon’s targets have already signed elsewhere, but we’re also still early in the process. And Patriots fans would be lying if they said they weren’t rooting for them to actually sign one of these guys.
