The Jets are adding a veteran pass rusher to Rex Ryan’s defense.
Jason Babin, the 34-year-old defensive end who visited the Jets this week, has agreed to terms. Babin’s agents announced the deal on Twitter.
Babin started all 16 games for the Jaguars last year and recorded 7.5 sacks. That was his highest total since 2011, when he had a phenomenal season in Philadelphia and finished with 18 sacks for the Eagles.
Babin was a first-round draft pick of the Texans in 2004 and has also played for the Seahawks, Chiefs and Titans. Although he’s not the All-Pro caliber player he was a few years ago, he’ll provide some solid depth as a situational pass rusher for the Jets.
