Babin was released by the Ravens on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The Ravens were desperate for help at outside linebacker after Terrell Suggs (Achilles) suffered a season-ending injury, but Babin ultimately just made things worse, with his primary impact coming via careless penalties. Given how poorly he played, the 35-year-old Babin may not get another shot in the NFL.

Babin signed a one-year contract with the Ravens on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

After losing Terrell Suggs to a season-ending Achilles injury in Sunday's opener against the Broncos, the Ravens moved quickly to bring in the veteran Babin to bolster their ranks at outside linebacker. Babin has shown plenty of pass-rushing ability in the past, most notably with an 18-sack campaign for the Eagles, but he's bounced around the league since that time. Now 35 years old, Babin is probably best suited for a part-time role at this stage of his career.

Jets signed DL Jason Babin to a two-year deal.

The second year of the contract is a team option. Financial details were not immediately available, but we'd expect very little guaranteed money for a 34-year-old player that was cut by the Jaguars a month ago. It's still a nice flier for the Jets, as Rex Ryan has squeezed plenty out of defensive players with far less ability. Babin led the Jags with 7.5 sacks and 19 quarterback pressures a year ago. He profiles as a situational pass-rusher in New York.

Free agent DE Jason Babin visited the Jets Monday.

Babin is 34 and a bit of a headcase, but did lead the Jags with 7.5 sacks and 19 quarterback pressures last season. He'd be a low-cost situational toy for Rex Ryan to kick the tires on at camp.

Jaguars released DE Jason Babin.

Babin is 34 years old now and wasn't a lead-pipe lock for the final roster, but this one still comes as a mild surprise. He led the Jags with 7.5 sacks and 19 quarterback pressures last season, and was re-signed in March to provide depth at the Leo spot in Gus Bradley's defense. That pact included $500,000 guaranteed. FOX's Mike Garafolo says the Bucs and Falcons are two pass-rush needy teams that could kick the tires on Babin.

Jaguars DE Jason Babin voided the final two years of his contract, and is now a free agent.

Babin was a candidate for release, so it was likely a mutual decision. Babin was due $6 million in each of the next two seasons. The fact that he'd walk away from that kind of money is a pretty obvious sign the Jags were pushing for a major pay cut. The Florida Times Union believes the sides could eventually agree on a new deal. Going on 34, Babin notched 7.5 sacks and three forced fumbles across 16 starts last season, but got out-played by Andre Branch. He'll be viewed as a situational pass rusher on the open market.

ESPN Jaguars blogger Michael DiRocco considers DE Jason Babin a candidate to be released.

Babin is due $6 million in 2014 and was outplayed by Andre Branch last season. He started all 16 games at the LEO position, but graded out as just the No. 39 defensive end by Pro Football Focus. Babin is open to re-negotiating his contract and could be brought back at a reduced salary.

National Football Post's Jason Cole reports the Jaguars have received trade inquiries about DE Jason Babin.

Babin is 33 years old with a $4.225 million guaranteed salary, so it's likely Jacksonville isn't getting offered much in the way of compensation. He has two sacks and 16 tackles through six starts. Still, Babin could help a team as a situational, Wide-9 edge rusher. He's not in the Jags' long-term plans.

Jaguars RE Jason Babin (groin surgery) was medically cleared for training camp.

He passed his conditioning test and is all systems go. Babin will be the Jaguars' primary "Leo" defensive end, which is the go-to pass rusher in Gus Bradley's scheme. He's got legit IDP value as a sneaky DL2/3 with some upside.
