Jason Babin voids final two years of contract, now a free agent

Gus Bradley, Jason Babin AP

Add another name to the free agent pass-rusher pool.

According to multiple reports, Jaguars defensive end Jason Babin has voided the final two years of his contract, and will become a free agent.

The Jaguars are “keeping their options open” with Babin, per Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, but this sounds like the good old “mutual decision.”

Babin was productive enough, with 7.5 sacks last year. But he was due to make $6 million, and that’s not the rate 33-year-olds get paid in this climate.

By jumping now, Babin gets a head start on finding a new home rather than waiting around to get cut.

    Return to Philly? No thanks. Guy became a waste product and locker room cancer once crap hit the fan.

    No returns to Philly, thank you very much.

    Stay the heck away from Philly, “Mr. Wide 9″!!!

    Babin is a victim of the Jaguars youth movement. They brought in a 30 year old to replace him.

    Interesting past season for Babin, this news surprises me but only a little. I watched him mope around on the sidelines in the early games but then he picked up interest and was very active all season. He was cheering his teammates on, patting them on the back after good plays, etc, he was a changed man.

    He wasn’t going to get the 6 mill, we all knew that.

    Since he quit, does this mean he can’t collect unemployment insurance?

    nothing better than babin getting laid out by a TE (dont remember who it was) while with the eagles.

    he never looked up and got destroyed followed by crying about it

    Silly commenters up top. Babin was a beast in 2011 plus the wide 9 wasn’t his creation. He’s got unfinished business in Philly. Bring it on.
