Matthew Judon

Recommended Posts

Matthew Judon is another BAL "under the radar" pass rusher whose going to be a
free agent:

He's almost identical to ZaDarius Smith, who I wanted the Jets to go after badly
last year:

We have a huge BAL influence in our front office (Douglas, Alexander & Savage)
and Mosley who played with Judon on the roster.  Hopefully this year we'll leverage
those connections and finally score a pass rusher

He always shows up on film, big fan also. I’d be surprised if Baltimore let him hit the market though.

If you bring in Judon, you’re probably letting Jenkins walk.

Can’t see the Jets paying $12+ million a year for both.

At least I wouldn’t

I would have no problem if the Jets do what GB did last year and spend
big $$$ on two pass rushers and leave the OLine for the draft (which
is deep)

Just depends on the price tag for me, im not sure how i feel about paying both jenkins and judon around 12-15 mil a year while we're paying mosley and williamson. thats a lot of money to be tied up into the LB position when we need to spend on so many other areas. 

That said, if they're not going to retain jenkins, i really like judon as a player.

there are going to be guys getting absolutely paid this offseason that probably are going to be over valued. 

Shaq Barrett is going to get a monster deal.  He's a guy that you'd think about going really hard after in FA. Dude already has 14.5 sacks this year and is only 27.   The problem with him is that he's never had more than 5.5 in a year... Why the jump? is Todd Bowles defense really that conducive to pass rushers?   Or is he a guy that just got lost in that denver system because they had so many good pass rushers at the time that they never gave him a fair shot?

Heres why id be hesitant.. He's never had more that 5.5 sacks in a year until this year.  Gives me major pause when im talking a big money with big guarantees on a deal. 

 

With how many holes are on this team though we'd be better served going for under the radar guys that can produce at an even level or possibly higher level here, and that will sign for a more palatable contract.    

Depending on how they finish the year Judon and Bud Dupree are two guys that I'd look at.  Judon has been rock steady basically averaging 7-8 sacks a year (this year already at 8) . The problem is I see it taking a big contract to lure him away from a ravens team which A)wants to stop losing home grown players, and B ) is a serious contender for a superbowl. 

 

Bud dupree to me is maybe the most interesting name on the list of FA's besides Markus Golden.  

Bud durpee has had a very steady career so far posting 4, 4.5, 6, 5.5, and this year 8.5 sacks since being drafted.  Not outstanding masterful pass rushing numbers sack wise but steady production trending upwards this year. He's also posted double digit QB hits in back to back seasons.  Depending on how he finishes the year he could be a cheaper option for OLB but also a very very solid one. 

I said it a lot last year when talking about FA's maybe not so much on here but on other platforms.  I was very high on the jets signing not only shaq barrett (i never thought he'd be this good though i just thought it was worth the risk for the price)  but also Markus Golden. ESPECIALLY when they lost out on barr and zadarius smith (who i loved).   

Markus Golden is having a bit of a renaissance in NY right now. After doing next to nothing in Arizona after his 12.5 sack season, he's posted a respectable 7.5 sacks and 17 qb hits.  Part of the reason for his dip in production in Arizona was an Injury plagued season, and then switching to a 4-3 under steve wilks.  It because very clear that Golden was not a good fit in a 4-3 defense, but now healthy and back in a 3-4 with the giants, he's trended back towards being a productive passrusher.  I'm sure the giants are going to try to keep him after this year, but maybe a better defense and a better situation across town can lure him over for a more manageable deal.

There's no way Williamson is coming back next year.  Hewitt & Cashman were impressive and

way cheaper

Problem is the Packers are a contender and we are not.  We'd have to significantly overpay Edge rushers who hit the open market.

Bud Dupree would be my favorite UFA target as well if the Steelers let him walk.  Even if we have to overpay him to come here.  Loved him entering his draft year and still like him a lot.
