New England Patriots

Linebacker Matthew Judon joined Mac Jones as two Patriots on the NFL’s annual Top 100 list. Jones was No. 85 and Judon is No. 52.

“He can cover running backs out of the backfield, he can obviously pass rush, he can defend the run,” New Orleans Saints safety Tyrann Mathieu said of Judon.” “[The Patriots] run a versatile system, and it allows guys like him to really show who they are.”

In his first season with the Patriots, Judon tallied a career high in sacks with 12.5, tying for seventh most in the NFL in 2021.

Judon enters the second season of his four-year, $54.5 million contract he signed with New England.
