Matthew Judon makes recruiting pitch for former Patriot’s return

New England Patriots linebacker Matthew Judon made a pitch to free agent linebacker Kyle Van Noy to come back to New England.

In a Twitter post, Van Noy, who is now a free agent, jokingly urged Judon to find him a new team. Judon then tweeted “bring em back” in an effort to recruit Van Noy back to New England.

Van Noy spent five years with the Patriots with his most recent one being the 2021 season. He recorded 287 tackles and 21.5 sacks during his tenure with the team. His best season came in 2018, when he recorded 92 combined tackles.

The linebacker was released by the Patriots in March 2022, before signing with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Van Noy would give New England a veteran presence in the linebacker room. He could complement Judon, who is coming off a season that saw him record a career-high 15.5 sacks.

It would be a reunion of sorts, as the Patriots look to get back on track in a crowded AFC. If nothing else, you can’t fault Judon for trying.
