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. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

  • blackballed and shipped to no mans land. Bye Bye
  • Watch what you wish for you just might get what you don't want!

    You and the rest who quit on the team is real low class!

  • The way the Eagles are playing Babin probably feels he has died and gone to heaven. Jags have few super stars and have a hard time winning,the Eagles are full of super stars and have a hard time winning. So who's better off? The Jags are on their way up,the Eagles on their way down.
  • Being a JAGUAR Starter is not a 1 way ticket to nowhere. Every team has its share of trials & tribulations over the years. The Bills haven't been into playoffs in 13 years. Jags are better than our record; but we are a team on the rise, albeit a slow climb.Hate on your own team. Back off our JAGS.
