The Jets knew they needed to add another pass rusher for specific defensive packages. Babin excels when it comes to blitzing, as he can do it either from the linebacker position or defensive line. Expect to see him get to the quarterback in a hurry, and do so consistently.

When it comes to running the football, the Jets needed to add some more depth to stuff the box against teams that love to run up and down the field. With Babin, he'll be able to use his skills to be a big part of stopping the run, as well as using his experience to guide those around him to detect rushing plays faster. Expect to see a lot of run-stuffing packages that feature Babin and his speed.

The Jets will have a few rookies that will be starting on defense this season who will definitely keep their ears open whenever Babin is around giving guidance. With more than a decade of experience playing in the NFL, he will help become a new veteran leader on defense. Expect to see everyone prosper from the fact that now he'll be able to help steer players, especially younger ones, in the right direction.

The Jets have one of the best defensive line corps in the NFL, but you never know what can happen on any given Sunday. Babin will provide quality depth should a member of the "Sons of Anarchy" go down to injury or if they need a breather in between plays. Babin plays very well either as an outside linebacker, or at any position on the defensive line.

Babin has integrity and is considered a great team player. Willing to do anything for the team to succeed, Babin is now in a thriving system that he himself even said was running like a well-oiled machine. Expect to see him have another productive season and who knows, he might even produce more than his career-high 18 sacks in a season within the Jets' brilliant defensive system.
