Eagles Ink Free Agent DE Jason Babin to Five-Year Deal

Free agent defensive end Jason Babin has agreed to a five-year contract with the Eagles, Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports.

According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, Babin’s deal is worth $28 million with between $5 million to $6 million in guarantees.

A 2004 first-round pick out of Western Michigan by the Houston Texans, Babin spent the 2009 season with the Eagles, recording 2.5 sacks in 12 games before signing a one-year contract with the Tennessee Titans in 2010.

A 16-game starter in Tennessee, Babin recorded a career-high 12.5 sacks and earned Pro Bowl honors for the first time in his career playing on a defensive line that was coached by Jim Washburn, who left the Titans for Philadelphia earlier this year.

In 82 career games with the Texans (2004-06), Seahawks (2007-08), Chiefs (2008), Eagles, and Titans, the 31-year-old has 230 tackles and 30 quarterback sacks.
