Baltimore Ravens pass-rusher Matthew Judon has signed his franchise tag, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Thursday night.

Baltimore placed the tag on the 27-year-old in March. The deadline for teams and tagged players to reach agreements on long-term extensions is July 15.

To avoid a potential dispute over Judon's position, the Ravens signed off on a $16.808-million tag that's a midpoint between the defensive end and linebacker designations, according to Pelissero.

He enjoyed his best campaign in 2019, recording a career-high 9.5 sacks. The 2016 fifth-round pick has logged 28.5 sacks in four seasons.
