Although technically under contract for the 2024 season, Matthew Judon has been looking for an extension over the last two years. Bill Belichick started to make things right with the Patriots star pass rusher before the 2023 season by moving money from his contract this season to give Judon a bigger payday last year.

Now that this season is slowly but surely getting closer, it's time for Jerod Mayo and Eliot Wolf to offer Judon an extension as soon as possible.

We've already seen hints of what could be the groundwork for an eventual holdout, much like last year when Judon didn't attend OTAs or training camp until his contract situation was sorted out.

That will likely be the case this year as well, but based on his most recent post on Twitter/X, the Patriots may have already settled the negotiations much sooner than anticipated.

Matthew Judon teases contract extension with Patriots on social media

Early on Saturday afternoon, Judon took to social media and simply posted an infamous gif from the movie Wolf Of Wall Street. It's typically used when a player hints at staying with their current team, as Leonard DiCaprio's character says, "I'm not f****** leaving!"

Given the current status of Judon's stance with the team, this feels like the hint of all hints that the Patriots are either working on an extension with him or have already gotten a deal done that is yet to be announced.

This would be the latest incredible news for the team this offseason, as Mayo and Wolf have put together quite a string of re-signings and extensions since the start of free agency.

They already locked down Christian Barmore, Kendrick Bourne, Kyle Dugger, and Hunter Henry, leaving Judon as the top priority before the start of the season.

Hopefully, that's exactly what they've done, especially since the linebacker has made it clear he wants to stay in New England and even retire as a Patriot. Considering how important he has become for their defense, there's no reason not to keep him around as long as possible, even more so after having the best seasons of his career since arriving in Foxboro in 2021.
