Lawrence Guy: I was thrilled when I saw the Patriots signed Matthew Judon

Defensive lineman Lawrence Guy elected to re-sign with the Patriots on a four-year deal this offseason, continuing his tenure after a previous four seasons with the club.

But before he initially signed with New England in 2017, Guy played three seasons with Baltimore. Guy’s final year with the Ravens was edge rusher Matthew Judon‘s rookie year as a sixth-round pick out of Grand Valley State. So Guy had a positive reaction to hearing the news Judon was heading up to New England.

“I was thrilled when I saw Judon got signed,” Guy said Thursday, via Zack Cox of NESN. “I remember when I left Baltimore, I said, ‘This kid is going to be special.'”

Judon led the Ravens in sacks in each of the last two years, becoming one of the premiere edge rushers in this year’s free agent class. Judon has 34.5 career sacks, seven forced fumbles, 54 tackles for loss, and 103 quarterback hits in 76 games.

  1. Not sure why BB gave this guy so much money. Kinda like picking Barmore in the second round. Yeah it’s fun that they’re bullies, but does that matter when guys are running circles around you?

    Probably why the Patriots don’t usually pay big money in FA and are terrible at drafting. At least in free agency they can strategize to protect themselves from themselves.

  2. “If you can’t beat em, sign em.”
    BB finally learning how to build a defense- sign more Ravens.

  3. “BB finally learning how to build a defense”

    Belichick is the premier defensive coach in the NFL who has turned guys like Kyle Van Noy or even Tully Banta Cain into highly sought after pass rushers. Don’t talk down Belichick’s defense, that’s his specialty.

    BB finally learning how to build a defense- sign more Ravens.

    Are you new to football? Asking because you appear to not have seen or remember the Patriots beating the cr*p out of the Ravens on a regular basis in the last two decades.

  5. BB has stolen numerous Ravens’ players of late. Guy, Bethel
    and now Judon.

    Guy has been one of the conferece’s best DT/3-4 DEs for 4 years. Heck, even his 2017 season was good.

    If you can’t beat em, join em and get out of that ugly helmet, uniform, mortifying color and font on those numbers and away from Whinebaugh to a winning team.

    Gotta be refreshing especially now that NE has 2 qbs that can actually throw and Baltimore has an RB at QB.

    —————-

    Not to mention, the Pats D was #1 in 2019 with horrible QB play and ended up being one of the better Ds of the passing era.

  7. It wasn’t the Pats defense that routinely beat the Ravens. But I’ll still remember that one playoff game where we ran all over the Pats and the game was over in the first quarter. Either way, I wish Judon all the best. Loved him here in B-More. He is a bit over rated but he balls. Curious to see how BB puts him to use.

  8. This 2021 Patriots defense is going to be S.T.O.U.T.:

    Strong
    Tough
    Outstanding
    Unstoppable
    Tenacious

    Get ready for some throwback football
