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.

The Jaguars have bolstered their defensive line already this offseason, signing former Seattle Seahawks defensive end Red Bryant to a four-year deal worth $17 million.

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.
