The Saints and Hudson agreed to terms Thursday on a one-year contract, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Hudson put together a career-best 2023 season with Washington, the final year of his rookie deal, when he notched 4 tackles (44 solo), two pass defenses and 1.0 sacks in 17 regular-season games. Eight of those contests were starts, and he contributed 341 snaps on special teams. He figures to handle a similar role with New Orleans.

Comes on strong late in 2023

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-23

Hudson finished the 2023 season with 74 tackles (44 solo), two pass defenses and a sack in 17 games (eight starts).

The 2020 fifth-round pick finally got his shot at a featured role over the final four weeks of his rookie contract and responde with 11 or more tackles in each of those games while taking 85 percent or more of the defensive snaps. Hudson nonetheless finishes his rookie contract having played more than twice as many snaps on special teams (1,222) as on defense (551), but it's possible the strong finish to 2023 earns him a starting opportunity in 2024 -- be it in Washington or elsewhere.

Another big effort in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-01

Hudson had 11 tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 27-10 loss to the 49ers.

Hudson has started at outside linebacker for Jamin Davis (shoulder) since Week 15 and the former has registered double-digit tackles in all three games since. Hudson primarily served on special teams to start the year, but his performance as of late could propel him to more work on the defensive side of the ball next season. He was one last chance to show what he's got in Week 18 against the Cowboys.

Racks up 15 stops in Week 16

Hudson totaled 15 tackles (10 solo) and deflected two passes Sunday in a loss to the Jets.

Hudson's tackle total led Washington and was a career-high mark. The fourth-year pro worked primarily as a special-teamer over his first three NFL campaigns and through the first five weeks this season, but he's seen his role increase since then. When Jamin Davis (shoulder) went on IR on Dec. 13, it opened a starting spot for Hudson, and the latter has capitalized on the opportunity with 28 total stops in two subsequent starts.

Double-digit tackles in loss

Hudson recorded 14 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 28-20 loss to the Rams.

Hudson stepped into a more significant role on Washington's defense in Week 15 after Jamin Davis (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve, notching a career-high 14 takedowns against Los Angeles. The linebacker will likely continue to see an increased workload in the Commanders' final three contests of 2023.

Staying in Washington

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-03-12

The Commanders signed Hudson to a one-year deal Sunday, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

Hudson will stick with the Commanders for his fourth season after being selected by the team in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The 6-foot linebacker was let go by the team ahead of the 2022 campaign, though he was ultimately re-signed after spending the first six weeks of the season on Washington's practice squad. Hudson still never worked his way above a core special-teamer role in 2022, as he has played almost exclusively in this phase during his time with the Commanders. Hudson has accumulated 34 tackles across 41 regular-season appearances in his career.
