Judon threatens ESPN journalist over contract reports

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Matthew Judon took serious issue with an ESPN reporter’s information on Wednesday, and things quickly took a bizarre turn.

ESPN’s Jamison Hensley reported on Tuesday that the Ravens offered Judon a long-term deal worth an average of $16.5 million but were turned down. This was strongly disputed by Judon, who challenged Hensley on Twitter and received multiple responses.

Judon actually does have some reason to dispute the source. According to league rules, the Ravens had until July 15 to negotiate a long-term deal with Judon, who had been franchise tagged. After failing to reach a deal, negotiations were not allowed until the end of the regular season. In other words, the offer over the summer would have had to come before July 15.

Judon pointed this out on Instagram and added a threat of leaked pictures against Hensley.

Hensley had not responded to the latest post as of Wednesday afternoon.

Judon has taken issue with some of Hensley’s reporting before, so this isn’t completely out of nowhere. That said, this whole public spat is probably not something the Ravens will want to see.
