Found November 28, 2012 on Patriots Life:
Jaguars claimed Jason Babin.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 28, 2012Oh well. It was fun to think about!Jason Babin would've, in theory, given the Patriots quality depth with Chandler Jones injured and Jermaine Cunningham suspended. It was also said on twitter that Justin Francis had a noticeable limp in the locker room, we'll see what the injury report says. The Patriots apparently did not put a claim on Babin, according to Tom E Curran, meaning they probably would've waited until he cleared waivers to attempt to sign him, if at all.Babin was owed around $1.64 million for the rest of the season. That amount of money for five games made some people think teams would stay away. That didn't turn out to be the case as the Jaguars got him!I suppose he can help them coast into another playoff-less season. He must be pumped.
