Cardinals signed OLB Jason Babin.
The Cardinals needed a pass rusher after OLB Alex Okafor was sent to the NFI list. 35 years old, Babin appeared in just two games for the Ravens this season before getting released. Arizona was his first known workout. His snaps should be limited against the Packers on Saturday. Tue, Jan 12, 2016 01:23:00 PM

Free agent OLBs Jason Babin and Matt Shaughnessy worked out for the Cardinals on Monday.

The Cardinals have lacked pass rushing heat all season, and could add an extra body before Saturday's Divisional Round game. Shaughnessy spent 2013-14 in the desert.

Ravens released OLB Jason Babin.

The Ravens also cut Rashaan Melvin while adding Asa Jackson and Charles James to the active roster. Babin was a disaster in his 23 snaps against Cleveland in Week 5. The 35 year old doesn't have much left in the tank.

Ravens signed OLB Jason Babin, formerly of the Jets, to a one-year contract.

Babin, 35, will slide in as the Ravens' fourth outside linebacker and sub-package rusher after Baltimore lost Terrell Suggs to a torn Achilles' in Week 1. Look for rookie Za'Darius Smith and Courtney Upshaw to get the first looks opposite Elvis Dumervil, but Babin should see snaps on passing downs. He received really strong pass-rush grades from PFF last season despite just two sacks.

Free agent OLBs Jason Babin and Shaun Phillips worked out for the Ravens on Tuesday.

The Ravens need a body with Terrell Suggs (Achilles') done for the season. Babin notched only two sacks in 16 games for the Jets last season. He turned 35 in May.
Tue, Sep 15, 2015 06:10:00 PM

Jets released OLB Jason Babin.

The move saves the Jets $1.5 million against the cap. Babin recorded just two sacks across 16 games for New York last season and was behind Quinton Coples on the depth chart. Sophomore Trevor Reilly's roster spot should now be safe.

The Newark Star-Ledger doesn’t project OLB Jason Babin to make the 53-man roster.

The Jets are expected to go with IK Enemkpali as the backup to Quinton Coples. 35-year-old Babin is owed just $125,000 guaranteed in the final year of his deal. The Jets would save $1.5 million by releasing him.
Wed, Aug 5, 2015 05:31:00 PM

The Newark Star-Ledger considers OLB Jason Babin’s roster spot in jeopardy.

The Jets picked up Babin’s $1.63M option, but the addition of rookie Lorenzo Mauldin could make him expendable. Babin played on 45 percent of snaps last year and was productive in a situational role, finishing with 27 hurries and two sacks. The Jets would save $1.5M by cutting Babin.

Jets exercised OLB Jason Babin's 2015 option.

Babin was productive in a situational role last year, appearing in all 16 games and playing on 45 percent of snaps. Bringing him back is a low-risk move for the Jets. Babin has just a $1.63 million cap hit.

Jets signed DL Jason Babin to a two-year deal.

The second year of the contract is a team option. Financial details were not immediately available, but we'd expect little guaranteed money for a 34-year-old player that was cut by the Jaguars a month ago. It's still a nice flier for the Jets, as Rex Ryan has squeezed plenty out of defensive players with far less ability. Babin led the Jags with 7.5 sacks and 19 quarterback pressures a year ago, and earned a top-nine pass-rushing grade among defensive ends in PFF's rankings. He profiles as depth off the edge and a situational pass-rusher in New York.

Free agent DE Jason Babin visited the Jets Monday.

Babin is 34 and a bit of a headcase, but did lead the Jags with 7.5 sacks and 19 quarterback pressures last season. He'd be a low-cost situational toy for Rex Ryan to kick the tires on at camp.
Wed, Jul 23, 2014 10:47:00 AM

Jaguars released DE Jason Babin.

Babin is 34 years old now and wasn't a lead-pipe lock for the final roster, but this one still comes as a surprise. He led the Jags with 7.5 sacks and 19 quarterback pressures last season, and was re-signed to provide depth at the Leo spot in Gus Bradley's defense. That pact included $500,000 guaranteed. FOX's Mike Garafolo says the Bucs and Falcons are two pass-rush needy teams that could kick the tires on Babin.
Thu, Jun 19, 2014 08:57:00 AM

Jaguars re-signed DE Jason Babin.

It's a surprise after the Jaguars tapped their Seahawks pipeline for Chris Clemons and Red Bryant, but a gives a rebuilding team multiple pass-rushing options. All three players will be over 30 years of age by Week 1. The Jags' "Leo" rusher last season, Babin notched 7.5 sacks across 779 snaps. Both those totals should fall in 2014. It's possible Babin won't make the 53-man roster.
Thu, Mar 13, 2014 02:15:00 PM

Jaguars DE Jason Babin voided the final two years of his contract, and is now a free agent.

Babin was a candidate for release, so it was likely a mutual decision. Babin was due $6 million in each of the next two seasons. The fact that he'd walk away from that kind of money is a pretty obvious sign the Jags were pushing for a major pay cut. The Florida Times Union believes the sides could eventually agree on a new deal. Going on 34, Babin notched 7.5 sacks and three forced fumbles across 16 starts last season, but got out-played by Andre Branch. He'll be viewed as a situational pass rusher on the open market.

Jaguars DE Jason Babin is a candidate to be released.

Babin is due $6 million in 2014 and was outplayed by Andre Branch last season. He started all 16 games at the LEO position, but graded out as just the No. 39 defensive end by Pro Football Focus. Babin is open to re-negotiating his contract and could be brought back at a reduced salary.
