Adam Schefter, citing league sources, reports that Ravens DE/OLB Matthew Judon is a candidate to be franchised and traded to another team this offseason.
The Ravens would reportedly like to re-sign Judon, but they’re expected to at least listen to trade offers from other teams.
The 49ers acquired Ford for a second-round pick and later signed him to a five-year deal worth up to $87.5 million deal.
Meanwhile, the Chiefs sent first- and third-round picks in 2019 plus a second-round pick in 2020 to the Seahawks for Clark and a third-round pick. They later agreed to a five-year, $105.5 million deal with $63.5 million guaranteed.
Ravens HC John Harbaugh said a few weeks ago that he “very much” wants to keep Judon before admitting that it could be tough.
“We’re going to try to get as many of these guys re-signed as we can,” Harbaugh said. “Matt is probably right at the top of the list, for sure. … Our goal will be to have Matt back.”
Judon, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2016. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2.595 million contract and is now in line to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
In 2019, Judon appeared in all 16 games for the Ravens and recorded 54 tackles, 9.5 sacks and four forced fumbles.
