Patriots LB Matthew Judon taking charge mentoring younger linebackers

New England Patriots linebacker Matthew Judon is taking a leadership role in the locker room, despite entering only his second season with the team.

The veteran has been mentoring linebackers Anfernee Jennings and Josh Uche over the course of training camp. Judon’s locker is positioned next to Uche’s and Jennings’. This allows for constant communication between the three linebackers, as all three look to become key parts of the defense in 2022.

Uche recorded 12 tackles and three sacks last season, in addition to a fumble recovery, while Jennings was placed on injured reserve in August 2021 and was out for the entire season.
