Judon is definitely showing his lack of maturity in this twitter mess. While I understand why he may be frustrated with Hensley over the report, bringing the man's family into the issue was over the line.

He's going to find it may cost him the money he's seeking. Can a team trust this guy.

Not safe to say, IMO. I really doubt the Ravens care quite that much about how their players interact with reporters. If they wanted him back before today, they still will after this ridiculousness.



I agreed until the blackmail crap came out. Ravens should 100% care as soon as threats like that started to get made.

If the two sides were close I would think a deal would have been struck by now.  Judon's antics remind me of CJ Mosely before he walked.  I expect a similar end result here.

I have always defended Matt, but this is just stupid.  

 

It is almost comical that a player is threatening to post pictures of a writer at a strip club.  I wonder how he got the pictures.  

 

Bottom line, Who the hell cares?

How incriminating are these strip club pictures anyway? He look real drunk getting a lap dance? Doing a line off a stripper's ass?

 

On one hand, I feel kinda bad for Judon reaching his first shot at a big second contract under these circumstances, especially when he's already 28. But he sure is handling this situation poorly. I mean, what about social media drama could he have possibly thought would help him in this case?

 

Sometimes the anger gets the better of us, I guess. He's probably frustrated by everything about the process and the events that have led up to it.

Eventually, not sure if joking or not, but Judon basically said, tell the truth or i'm going to share the pictures of you at the strip club with your wife.

Yes.

 

Honestly, first time I read that particular remark, I thought he was just joking. One of those mean jokes, but ultimately still just dogging you type of things. I could be very wrong.

 

I'm stopping myself from forming an opinion on any of this though, because I don't know the whole story.

So unless I missed something Judons only beef is Hensley reporting Judon turned down an extension in season. Correct? I dont get why there is this much drama. Hensley surely got that info from a legit source even if the info isnt 100% accurate.

I believe he also blames him for the $20 mil a season talk.

Bottom line, all Judon has to do is keep his mouth shut. Why does he care so much about what gets reported? I imagine it is false, I can't believe the Ravens offered that much and Judon said no. Especially knowing that the cap was going the wrong way.

But in any case, even if the Ravens don't offer him what he wants. He hits the open market, and lord knows their is always at least one dumb team with too much money, willing to overpay him. See Paul Kruger.

The Judon thing is one I see both sides of in theory. We know the press publishes things that aren't true, or are at least twisted and mis-characterized. I know I get mad any time someone says something that's wrong about me or my actions or my words or my kids, etc.

The media, both for better and for worse, have the protective umbrella of "protecting their source" and using unnamed sources, liberally and almost without any hindrance whatsoever.

Anybody else writes a non-fiction paper, a research article, a school thesis or essay, etc... You're expected to document your sources thoroughly. Provide evidence or access to backing information. Etc.

That "unnamed source" holy grail that is clung to as the sacred standard that we cannot question. Judon was asking for that detail. Maybe Hensley's completely wrong with it. Maybe he has a bad source, or that source lied. Regardless, to Judon's perspective... If it's not true, I get the anger at it being published. Maybe he could have handled it better, like a call to Hensley to say so and ask where he got the information (whether Jamison might give him that info is another matter). Maybe Hensley did (or should have) tried to confirm with Judon first???

As for Judon the player... I see him as a good player, a plus player, but also one that fits a mold the Ravens have been fairly good at finding in the draft pretty consistently. I would not push any budget constraints to keep him longer term.
