Jason Babin Potential Salary Cap Casualty?

ESPN Belives DE Jason Babin COuld Be A Salary Cap Casualty

When defensive end Jason Babin played for the Philadelphia Eagles, he was considered one of the top pass rushers in the league. Now that Babin has been with the Jaguars the last two seasons, the tables have turned. The 33-year-old defensive end could be a candidate to be released as a salary cap casualty in 2014.

Babin is due $6 million in 2014 and some reports are leading that the Jaguars do not feel the veteran defensive end is worth that kind of money. Babin was outplayed by teammate Andre Branch during the 2013 season, Babin recorded just 40 tackles and 7.5 sacks. Branch recorded 37 tackles and six sacks — Branch recorded five sacks in the last seven games of the regular season.

Babin has mentioned that he is willing to re-negotiate his contract, so that he can be brought back at a reduced figure. Will the Jaguars release Babin before they try to get him back? We know that the Lions will be trying to do so with safety Louis Delmas who they released this week.

Pro Football Focus ranked Babin as the 39th defensive end in football after starting all 16 games at left end for the Jaguars. Each day, more releases are being made. Will Babin add to the list?
