Titans Sign Babin; Eagles Have One Week to Match Contract, Retain Defensive End's Rights

Posted Mar 17, 2010

 
Defensive end Jason Babin sacks Colts QB Peyton Manning, forcing him to fumble, in a 2009 preseason game at Indianapolis. 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Titans have signed Jason Babin to an offer sheet and will learn within a week if the defensive end ultimately will join the organization.

While Babin is categorized as an unrestricted free agent, a right-of-first-refusal clause was written into his previous contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, giving them one week to match another team’s offer and retain his rights.  If the Eagles decline to match the deal executed today between Babin and the Titans, the contract with the Titans becomes binding and the Titans would not owe the Eagles any compensation.

Babin (6-3, 267) has played seven NFL seasons, compiling 197 tackles and 17.5 sacks in 66 career games.  Last season in Philadelphia, he played in 12 contests and notched 20 tackles and 2.5 sacks. 

The 29-year-old defensive lineman was originally drafted by Houston in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft (27th overall).  After spending three seasons with the Texans, he spent all of 2007 and part of 2008 with the Seattle Seahawks and finished the 2008 campaign as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs.  He joined the Eagles during training camp in 2009.

A native of Paw Paw, Mich., Babin was the two-time MAC Defensive Player of the Year at Western Michigan, where he posted 38 career sacks.
