Found November 27, 2012 on BroncoTalk:
(Image courtesy of Donn Jones Photography) On Tuesday, the Philadelphia Eagles made a shocking move and announced the released defensive end Jason Babin. A 32 year-old veteran, Babin (6-3, 267 lbs.) had a breakout season in 2010 as a member of the Titans defensive line and recorded 12.5 sacks. The next offseason, Babin signed with Philly and became a household name when he recorded 18.0 sacks and earned his first Pro Bowl appearance. This season, Babin has led the Eagles with 5.5 sacks but Philadelphia, struggling on defense, decided to move on, placing Babin on waivers. Against the run, Babin has been a liability, but he could contribute to many teams as a pass rushing specialist. So, should the Denver Broncos kick the tires on this veteran lineman? It seems unlikely that Babin would fall all the way to Denver on waivers, but it could happen.  Not every team will be interested in his three-year contract, which owes him over $11 million through 2015. The Broncos, however, have the cap room and Babin would make Denver’s No. 4 ranked defense even more tenacious against the pass.  NFL.com‘s Dan Hanzus views Denver as one of five possible landing spots for Babin, citing Denver’s Super Bowl hopes as a reason to pursue a veteran that could help them down the stretch. Would you like to see the Broncos place a waiver claim on Babin?  A pass rush featuring Von Miller, Elvis Dumervil and Jason Babin would be fun to watch on Sundays.  Dish out your thoughts in the comments below!
