Eagles let Babin fly the coop

As expected, the Philadelphia Eagles have decided not to match the one-year offer sheet that defensive end Jason Babin recently signed with the Titans.

Per Dave Spadaro of the Eagles’ official web site, the team has advised the league that the offer will not be met.

Babin agreed to give the Eagles a right of first refusal when signing a contract in 2009.  He appeared in 12 games, and he registered 2.5 sacks.

A first-round draft pick of the Texans in 2004, Babin now returns to the AFC South.  He was a full-time starter in his rookie year only, and his time in Houston ended after only three seasons.

    lol Dave Spadaro sucks. He knows nothing about the Eagles. He just relays the bullshit messages that the inner circle wants us to hear. Although Sean Jones ended up not being what we were looking for, he said something like this in preseason of 2009 “Why do you want Sean Jones to start?? Macho Harris is blah blah blah. Macho Harris is the answer” dave spadaro is a bald headed freak. Nobody likes him and his opinions suck. I have family members that know him personally and hes a loser lmao.
    p.s. please trade mcnabb and our 1st round pick for the 1st overall pick to take a new qb or just trade mcnabb and let kolb start!

    i’d mention that his name is “spadaro” and not “sparado”, but he’s a complete toolbag who is pretty much hated by everyone in philadelphia, so i don’t care.

    @Tsmith
    Not sure you meant to say it twice but you are right to do so.
    What a tool. He may be the number 1 reason that Eagles fans have no idea what reality is. He blows so much unrealistic sunshine up the fans #$% that if they are relying on him for info they have no clue what is really going on.
    But hey, if he didn’t do that Andy Reid would have him fired for not being a “company guy”

    Babin is a beast – I wish Detroit would have signed him.

    No one should pay attention to a word Spadaro says. He’s just the Soviet News Monster who says what he is permitted to say.
    When the Eagles finally do fire him because they figured out that he’s useless, no reputable paper should ever consider hiring someone who became the Minister of Propaganda for the team.
    That, of course, means that the Inquirer will snap him right up. He can run the “socially conscious, yet angry and incoherent man on the street beat” with Stephen A Smith.

    So, the fact that Spadaro reports that the Eagles won’t match the offer invites a flood of “Spadaro is a tool” posts?
    He has the job that all you 40 yr old, jobless internet warriors in your mom’s basements WISH you had.
    You momma’s boys need to get lives.

    @vet735: as long as Spadaro continues to carry the FO’s water, he’s not “useless to them.” In fact, I’m sure this is precisely why they find him quite useful. They’ll keep him.
