JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Babin off waivers from Philadelphia. The Jaguars (2-9) will pay the remaining 1.69 million of Babin's 2012 salary, essentially taking a low-risk look at someone who could significantly upgrade one of the league's worst pass rushes. Jacksonville has a league-low 13 sacks, a glaring weakness on a team filled with holes. The Jaguars gave Jeremy Mincey a four-year contract worth 20 million in March, but he has two sacks. They also drafted Andre Branch in the second round, but he has played sparingly the last two months. Babin has 5 12 sacks after recording 18 last year. He signed a five-year, 28 million deal last summer after going to his first Pro Bowl with Tennessee following the 2010 season.
