Recently released former Eagles defensive end Jason Babin was released by the Eagles on Tuesday afternoon.
Less than 24 hours after the Eagles dropped their seventh game in a row, the Eagles began what is expected to be a lengthy shakeup taking place between now and the offseason on the defensive side of the football by releasing defensive end Jason Babin.
Babin, who’s production fell off a cliff this season with a team leading 5.5 sacks after posing 18 and making a trip to the Pro Bowl in 2011, sounded off on ESPN Radio shortly after his release, making an appearance with Jonathan Coachman.
“One, any time you see “Andy Reid” come across your caller ID, you know it’s probably not a good thing. But two, it was… all I could was, I laughed. I was like, “Alright, coach, if that’s what you got to do.” You know, it was just… I don’t know, it caught me off-guard.”
Meanwhile, former Eagles safety and current analyst on 97.5 FM The Fanatic in Philadelphia offered a differing viewpoint on Babin’s release.
“The last time that the Philadelphia Eagles let a player go in a losing season,” Brian Dawkins told ESPN. “When they need everyone on deck. The last guy that that happened to that I can remember, was TO. That tells me there’s something going on in the locker room with Jason Babin that we will never know about.”
