Report: Jets, defensive end Jason Babin agree to two-year deal

Wednesday July 23rd, 2014

The New York Jets and free agent defensive end Jason Babin have agreed to terms on a two-year deal, reports

The second year of the deal is reportedly a team option.

Babin spent the end of the 2012 season and 2013 with the Jacksonville Jaguars before voiding the remaining two years of his contract in March. Babin quickly agreed to an incentive-laden, three-year contract with the team, but the Jaguars decided to cut the 34-year-old in June and move forward with younger players.

Entering his 11th season out of Western Michigan, Babin has played for six teams in his career and made the Pro Bowl in 2010 and 2011 with the Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles, respectively. He recorded 7.5 sacks last season for the Jaguars.

Babin joins a Jets defense that was tied for 13th in the NFL last season with 41 sacks.
