  • Saints' Khaleke Hudson: Inks with New Orleans

    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 74 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.

  • Commanders' Khaleke Hudson: Comes on strong late in 2023

    Hudson finished the 2023 season with 74 tackles (44 solo), two pass defenses and 1.0 sacks 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 responded with 11 or more tackles in each of those games while taking 85 percent or more of the defensive snaps. Hudson nonetheless heads into free agency 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.

  • Commanders' Khaleke Hudson: Another big effort in loss

    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.

  • Commanders' Khaleke Hudson: 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.

  • Commanders' Khaleke Hudson: 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.

  • Commanders' Khaleke Hudson: Staying in Washington

    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.

  • Commanders' Khaleke Hudson: Signs with Commanders

    The Commanders signed Hudson off their practice squad Friday.

    After being elevated for both of the team's last two contests, the linebacker now finds himself on Washington's active roster. In those two games, he registered one tackle over 42 total snaps, only one of which was with the defensive unit.

  • Commanders' Khaleke Hudson: Practicing once again

    Hudson spent time working with Washington's first-team defense during minicamp earlier this June, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Hudson missed the Commanders' final five games of 2021 while dealing with an ankle injury. Though the linebacker saw some first-team reps during minicamp, he's still expected to serve in a depth role after playing just 22 defensive snaps last season.

  • Football Team's Khaleke Hudson: Designated to return from IR

    Hudson (ankle) was designated to return from injured reserve Friday.

    Hudson returned to practice Friday, beginning the 21-day window for him to be added to the active roster. Before his three-week absence, the 2020 fifth-round pick appeared in every game, operating mostly on special teams.
