It doesn't matter if it was with another team. Kubiak wants veterans if they are competent enough to be out there. A jumpy young guy can cost the team, and a veteran (while he might not be as PURELY talented as the young guy) is less likely to lose his head out there and go crazy over a series of plays.
eh.... Harris is a second round pick, he should be a difference maker. Even Kubiak would put a play-maker on the field before a role-player.

Babin was a trade-up-for-a-1st rounder and look where that got him. Traded out of here. And won't be coming back.

if Kubiak values draft position that badly, he never would have had Jason Allen sharing snaps 50-50 with KJ last season. I think Harris is valued, but he's being brought along slowly. He's still under a rookie contract, so it's not like he's burning up a lot of salary space every season either.

We're seeing more of him this season. If things go south with other CBs, he'll be out there. Then he'll have another camp to show his growth level. Or not.

Actually, "Quit" is probably one of the least likely things to keep a team from picking him up off waivers. Think about it from a Head Coach/General Manager standpoint:

Bad knee/neck/shoulder etc. - I can't fix that
Older than dirt - I can't fix that
Too stupid to understand the scheme - you can't fix stupid
Not enough talent/athletic ability to succeed - I can't fix that
Crappy attitude - I CAN fix that.

Not saying I believe it, but I'm guessing there's more than few coaches in the NFL who do.

Also, Babin's under contract for three more years, and to tie down a guy who's less than one season removed from 18 sacks for less than $6 Million a year with the caveat that you can walk away for nothing after a 5 game $1.6 Million test drive may not be a bad gamble.

So he goes from a bad Eagles team to arguably the worst team in the league? If he quit on Philly then I be he refuses to even leave the bench with the Jags.

So the Eagles fired Jim Washburn.

Makes me wonder what the real reason for them cutting Babin. You know we've heard the rumors that Babin quit, didn't like the "new direction" wasn't being a team player.

Then they fire his position coach.

What's up with that?

Saw a report where he was calling the fired D coordinator a fem version of his name in front of his position players.

Wasn't Washburn supposed to be the reason Babin went to the Eagles?

Washburn sounds like a real problem.

He called DC Juan Castillo "Juanita" out loud, every time, in front of everyone. He was openly critical of the offensive playcalling & other coaches. Sounds more like Buddy Ryan. Plus, his Wide 9 front favored getting sacks over stopping the run.

I guess the Eagles got tired of babysitting a childish, divisive coach.
