Report: Jaguars DE Jason Babin voids contract, becomes free agent
Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Jason Babin voided the final two years of his contract Monday, making him a free agent before the team had a chance to cut him, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
Babin, 33, was set to make $6 million next season. The team still could bring him back at a reduced salary. He started all 16 games for the Jaguars and recorded 7.5 sacks last season. The Jaguars are more than $60 million under the salary cap for next season.
Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said the team is keeping their options open on Babin, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. The Jaguars pass rush was virtually non-existent last season, tying for the fewest sacks in the NFL.
