Jason Babin doing his QB sack celebration, something he hasn’t done much in 2012.
Bye bye, Jason Babin.
The Philadelphia Eagles defensive end was released on Tuesday, the first prominent player this season to see that fate. Babin, acquired during 2011’s free agent spending frenzy, has not performed anywhere near last season’s Pro Bowl level. His 18 sacks last year have met with dramatically declined production in 2012, with Babin only having 5.5 sacks.
Andy Reid issued the following statement about Babin’s release:
“We appreciate everything that Jason has given this team over the last couple of years. We wish him all the best as he continues his career. By releasing him today, this gives us an opportunity to give more playing time to some of younger guys in the defensive line rotation.”
To be sure, Babin isn’t the only player on the Eagles defensive line to go silent this season. But the fact that he was unpopular in the locker room, with CSNPhilly’s Geoff Mosher saying that several...

The 3-7 Philadelphia Eagles take on the 2-8 Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football in scintillating Week 12 action. I’m sure this “battle of the disappointments” isn’t what the schedule-makers had in mind when they put this on the calendar last spring.
It was supposed to Cam Newton, the rookie sensation in 2011, versus the resurgent Michael Vick. The Panthers appeared...
IRVING The Philadelphia Eagles cut defensive end Jason Babin on Tuesday, leaving the two-time Pro Bowler available to be claimed by another franchise.
The Jacksonville Jaguars won the claim on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.

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...
According to Howard Eskin of FOX 29 in Philly, both the Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens are interested in defensive end Jason Babin who was released by the Eagles on Tuesday.
Babin is scheduled to clear waivers at 4pm today. It will be interesting to see if either team puts in a claim for him or if they’re willing to roll the dice in hopes that he becomes a free agent.
Jason Babin, this year's blockbuster waived player, may want to stay with the Jaguars long-term.
Babin has a player option in his contract that would allow him to become an unrestricted free agent following the 2013 season, but Babin indicates he won't necessarily exercise that option to get out of Jacksonville.
After indicating he thought of Jacksonville as his long...
After being released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday, DE Jason Babin will not play for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Adam Schefter first released the information via his Twitter page. A source close to Babin reported to Ian Rapoport states that there were 8 teams interested in Babin and according to Around the League editor, Greg Rosenthal, only the Kansas City Chiefs...
General NewsThe release of starting defensive end Jason Babin is a rather erratic move this late in the season. But the move exposes the fact that the Birds should have made some changes at the defensive end positions and/or elsewhere on the defensive side of the ball much earlier in the season.
There’s talk that the Eagles [...](Read more...)

At least that adage now applies to Philadelphia Eagles players making more than the veterans' minimum wage.
The purge of expensive older players has begun. Defensive end Jason Babin (age 32) was the first to go.

Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 12 in the National Football League! Robert Griffin III put on a Thanksgiving show that I’m sure we will be talking about for sometime.
Another week gone by and the Phillies have still won a game more recently than the Eagles have. The best would be if the Flyers won a game before the next time the Eagles did. And that’s with the NHL losing a full season to the lockout.
Not that Andy Reid had any chance of salvaging his job with a good performance in a prime time game against another team, but he couldn’t even...
Well if losing to the Carolina Panthers last night on Monday Night Football wasn't enough, then the news that was given to the Philadelphia Eagles this morning sure added to it. Head Coach Andy Reid announced during his Tuesday afternoon press conference that Jackson had sustained multiple rib fractures and will most likely be placed on the injured reserve today. It is believed...
Up until this past Monday night, the only real hatred towards Andy Reid was coming from Philadelphia Eagles fans. But after Bryce Brown racked up 178 yards and two touchdowns against the Carolina Panthers, Reid can add fantasy owners to the list. The Eagles are notorious for wanting to throw the ball. So much so, that LeSean McCoy could be arguably be perceived as a better wide receiver...
