Jason Babin is back with the Jaguars.
Babin, who voided the final two years on his previous contract with the Jaguars to become a free agent, decided after a few days of testing the market that he likes it in Jacksonville. The Jaguars announced that they have signed Babin to a new contract today.
The 33-year-old Babin started all 16 games for the Jaguars last year and was one of their better defensive players (not that that’s saying much), leading the team with 7.5 sacks.
Babin will be joined on the defensive line this season by a couple of new arrivals from Seattle, Red Bryant and Chris Clemons, both of whom have previously played for head coach Gus Bradley. It appears that the Jaguars’ defense is going to have a good group of veteran players up front.
