Former Philadelphia Eagles DE Jason Babin had a good amount interest from other teams after he was cut by the Eagles, but we're sure this isn't the place he imagined he'd be going.
A league source is reporting that the Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed Babin off waivers, securing his contract through 2015.
The talented defensive end now finds himself going from bad to worse in the span of less than two days. No word yet from Babin on his reaction to joining a terrible 2-6 team with no future in sight, but he can't be estatic about it.
Babin signed a 5-year deal worth $28 million with Philadelphia, and the Jaguars will pay him the remainder of his 2012 salary, $1.69 million.
If he plays beyond this year at Jacksonville, they'll inherit the rest of the contract.
Babin played the last two seasons in Philly. He has five and a half sacks with two forced fumbles this season.

There are few things in the NFL that gets the fan base of the Jacksonville Jaguars more riled up than people quoting myths, as fact, in regards to the team and the stability of the franchise in Jacksonville. I will attempt to try to explain the myth versus the fact and provide easily research-able facts to try to dispel some of the more egregious myths.
Blackouts: This is the biggest...
It was not expected that former Eagles defensive end Jason Babin would pass through the waivers process unclaimed.
As some predicted that a short list of contenders would quickly upgrade their pass rush to head into the playoffs, it was obvious that a non-contender would earn his rights thanks to how waivers work.

Nothing says 2-9 like coming up with a new item called the “Jag Rag.” The Jag Rag will end up costing you around $10 but the good news is that portions of the proceeds go to charity. So at least if you decide to buy one of these terrible looking things, you will at least be helping out a cause.H/T: Deadspin
For years now Pittsburgh Steelers fans have waived the “Terrible Towel” at Steelers’ games. Now Jacksonville Jaguars fans will have their own towel to waive.

I predict the game is blacked out and we’re all better off for it! Seriously, Buffalo 20-10.
Brandon Hess: Bills 34-24
Buffalo can’t get off the field on third downs, and have lost all three match-ups against the AFC South this season. Despite these trends I think this is the week the Bills put together a solid 60 minutes on both sides of the ball. ...
ARE YOU READY FOR SOME MEANINGLESS FOOTBALL!? Ugh. Jags vs. Bills. Ratings galore. Crap on a roll or grease fire on top of a flaming swamp? It is going to be ugly and sad. Anyways, If you guys still care about this season, I decided to do a Q&A with the boys over at The Jagernaut. Enjoy and die.

In the most unfortunate bit of team outreach to fans since the Browns created, then abruptly pulled back, white flags for fans to wave last week, the Jaguars have released their own take-off of the Terrible Towel and have called it the Jag Rag. Seriously, why does Jacksonville need another fan accessory? The already have one of the best. THEY HAVE THE BAGUARS!
Lots of NFL teams...
