Amid the hardship and uncertainty of a mounting casualty list that claimed several Pies backmen in the second half of last season, Langdon found another gear and earned the respect of the football world. The versatile defender manfully accepted the challenge of playing as an undersized key defender and became more vocal as a leader of an inexperienced backline. Performed admirably on a variety of forwards including big men Jack Darling and Lance Franklin, along with medium-sized stars Robbie Gray and Josh Caddy. Sydney coach John Longmire, a judge for the Norm Smith Medal, deemed Langdon the third-best player afield in the Grand Final loss to West Coast. Knocked back offers from the Swans and Fremantle to recommit to the Magpies until 2021.
