Defensive end Jason Babin, who was released Tuesday by the Philadelphia Eagles, was claimed on Wednesday by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Why Did Jags Claim Babin?

are tied for the fewest sacks of a quarterback this season, which might explain why they decided to claim Jason Babin on waivers from the Eagles. Team Sacks -- ESPN Stats & Information Jaguars 13 Raiders 13 Jets 17 Eagles 18 Buccaneers 18

Eight teams put in a claim for Babin, a source told ESPN, but the Jaguars were awarded the defensive end because they had the worst record (2-9) of the teams that made claims.

The Jaguars will pay the remaining $1.69 million of Babin's 2012 salary, essentially taking a low-risk look at someone who could significantly upgrade one of the league's worst pass rushes.

The two-time Pro Bowl defensive end's release was the first major roster move for the Eagles, who have lost seven straight games.

Babin had just 5.5 sacks after recording 18 last year. He signed a five-year, $28 million deal last summer after going to his first Pro Bowl with Tennessee following the 2010 season.

Jacksonville has a league-low 13 sacks, a glaring weakness on a team filled with holes.

The Jaguars gave Jeremy Mincey a four-year contract worth $20 million in March, but he has two sacks. They also drafted Andre Branch in the second round, but he has played sparingly the past two months.

Eagles coach Andy Reid said the Eagles cut Babin to give more playing time to younger players.

Information from ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter and The Associated Press was used in this report.

This. I was just going to say "just in time to beat Austin Howard for three strip sacks of Sanchez."

I guess Rex said "our Defense is good enough and don't bet against our Defense and we will be a Top 5 defense"....isn't that right people?

We don't need a pass rusher on our team.

No. Not at all in fact. There this thing called the waiver wire and the Jags were 2nd in line. Jets never had a chance of claiming him.

Why don't we have a worse record? Then we wouldn't miss opportunities like this.

Just this morning I read that Rex believes the defense is elite......I have had enough of this nonsense.
