Holy crap! From chump to champ and back to chump.

Eagles release Jason Babin. Will owe remaining balance of $5.6M salary, $1.64M, if he is not claimed on waivers.
We could actually fit him under the cap this year if we wanted to. How would he do as a 3-4 DE? Can he play anything other than a wide 9?

He weighs 260ish. Doubt that's big enough.

Too small. We'd want to make him an OLB.... a WOLB which he didn't do to well at for us before. With Wade though....


interesting why they let him go.

It's probably a financial decision. If he gets picked up, they save 1.64 million in capspace this year, which can be rolled over into 2013. The season is over for them, so might as well start looking ahead to next year.

Hugh Douglas, ESPN analyst/former Eagles DE on Jason Babin:

"He quit. He quit on this Eagles team. If he gets another job, I mean, congratulations to him. ... I would be surprised when other teams put that tape on, I would be surprised if he got another job. That's real talk from a guy that has played the position."


Brian Dawkins: These last time the Eagles let a guy go when they needed everybody on deck, all the help they could, get was T.O. (Terrell Owens).

It's also a sign of things to come for The Eagles.

That organization is getting blown up this off season.

I keyed on him several times last night. Boy, what a difference a season makes. He simply looked lost on the field, like he really didn't care to be out there. There'd be times he looked to have his man beat then make a strange move that would take him completely out of the play. It was weird, like a chicken with it's head cut off kinda weird.

A guy with 5.5 sacks, 18 sacks and 12.5 sacks the past three seasons. Hmm, I'm interested regardless. I could care less about his smaller size. Antonio Smith is doing little lately and if that worries you then let him play some snaps at OLB instead of RE.

We will. The Titans are needy enough and bad enough to claim him and get him. No worries though. I imagine after this season in Philadelphia he's ready to shut it down and go to the house until training camp (wherever that may be). Unless he's picked up by a team that's rolling and headed to the playoffs I bet he goes full turtle for the rest of the year.

I'd pick him up.

I think we'd have a good shot to do so since there probably aren't many teams ahead of us on the wire that need him and still have play-off hopes.

Didn't he bad-mouth the Texans after he was traded? I know he was a punk when he was with the Tacks when they beat us, didn't he take the game-winning kneel-down or am I mis-remembering? I just remember him really getting fired up to play us, but that could've been the steroids he was on at the time, allegedly.

At 1.64 mil Texans should take a chance on Babin. This is all predicated on Coach Phillips thoughts on Babin. Here is my main reason if Watt goes down (knock on wood) we are screwed. We need more pass rushers even if situational. When the Texans shipped Babin out the Defensive staff was completely different. Give Phillips more weapons. Texans can cut him if need too. Really where is the downside. Texans have given up 795 yds passing in last 2 games.

Watt 14.5
Smith 4.0
Mercilus 3.0
Reed 2.5
Barwin 2.0
Manning 1.0
Quin 1.0
Jamison 1.0
James 0.5
McCain 0.5
