Ravens’ Matthew Judon demands apology from ‘lying butt’ ESPN reporter, blackmails him with strip club photos

Matthew Judon, Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore Ravens edge rusher Matt Judon wants an apology from ESPN’s Jamison Hensley after the Ravens beat writer reported Judon turned down a long-term deal.

Hensley wrote Tuesday the Ravens offered Judon–who was eventually hit with the franchise tag–a deal worth around $16.5 million per year sometime last summer. Judon took to Twitter to dispute the report, calling him a “lying butt” and saying readers might begin to assume he was “pulling stuff outta nowhere.”

Judon also went after Hensley on Instagram, saying he would leak photos of the two at the strip club.

To Hensley’s credit, he added Judon’s comment to the story, and also welcomed the Ravens star to inquire whenever he has questions or issues with reporting.

Judging by Judon’s Instagram story, he did not (until recently) appear to understand teams and players had negotiating windows after the franchise tag is applied. It would be hard to have a running dialogue without that understanding.

Will the Ravens re-sign Judon, or will they look elsewhere to improve the pass rush?

Judon and Yannick Ngakoue headline Baltimore’s free-agent class. Although Judon was not as productive as he had been in 2019, he was still named to the Pro Bowl. He is entering his age-29 season, but might ultimately be a cheaper option than the younger Ngakoue or someone like J.J. Watt.

Hensley’s story also quoted teammates, like Ravens quarterback Marlon Humphrey, who cited Judon as a leader of the defense.

Regardless, Judon was quite intent on ensuring Ravens fans he did not outright decline any sort of contract offer to stay in Baltimore.
