According to multiple reports, the Patriots have agreed to sign edge rusher Matthew Judon to a four-year deal worth $56 million, including $32 million guaranteed.

Judon, 28, has played the entirety of his career with the Ravens after being drafted in the fifth round by Baltimore in 2016. He’s compiled 34.5 sacks in five seasons. His finest year came in 2019, when he totaled 9.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, 14 tackles-for-loss, and 54 combined tackles.
