Jason Babin Cut by Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles defense has struggled mightily all season long and following the team’s 30-22 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football the Eagles front office decided to make a major move to the unit.
The move that the team made was a decision to release Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Babin with five games remaining in the season. Babin made an appearance on ESPN’s NFL Live and had the following to say regarding the Eagles releasing him, “Anytime your cell phone rings and it says Andy Reid, you know it’s not good. In the game of football, you can never be too sure of anything.”
Eagles head coach Andy Reid released about speaking about the team’s decision which said, “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 the younger guys in the defensive line rotation.”
Last season Babin had his best year recording 18 sacks just one season after signing a five-year, $28 million deal which is now done due to the team letting him go. Babin is eligible to sign with any team that chooses to add the nine-year veteran. This season Babin led the Eagles with 5.5 sacks and for his career the defensive end has 53.5 sacks, 296 tackles and nine forced fumbles.
Babin is just 32-years old and should have no problem receiving offers from other teams interested in signing him for the remainder of the year.
