New England Patriots linebacker Matthew Judon is ready to play ball. He missed most of the 2023 season with a biceps injury suffered in Week 4 but it sounds like Judon is ready to make up for lost time. Judon appeared as a guest on The Money Down Podcast, with hosts Warren Herring, Sojourn Shelton, and former Patriots star James White. Judon shared his mindset heading into the 2024 NFL season.

“I got a personal message” said Judon. “I’m out for a vendetta. Like I got sh-t to prove and I got stuff I want to get done in my career. So personally, I’m on all B.S. all year. I’m about to turn the dial back.”

Despite New England struggling to a 4-13 record in 2023 and parting ways with legendary coach Bill Belichick, Judon was uninterested in talk about a rebuild. “We’re not laying down for nobody. We’re not trying to rebuild. We just got a new coach.”

The Pro Bowler added, “We ain’t about to come out every game looking like a deer in headlights. We’re going to put the best 11 on the field, offense, special teams, and defense, to win a game.”

New England Patriots fans will be happy to have a healthy Matthew Judon back on the field this season. He recorded 32.0 sacks in 38 games since joining the Patriots in 2021. Judon never missed more than two games in a season before 2023. It sounds like he has a lot of pent-up energy to unleash on the league in the coming season.
