I am pretty surprised by this... I think we should have corners visiting. Thoughts?

The New York Jets are toying with adding another pass rusher.

NFL Media's Kimberly Jones reported Wednesday morning that defensive end Jason Babin visited with the Jets on Monday, according to a source familiar with the team's thinking.

The Jacksonville Jaguarstwice this offseason, cut Babin. The 34-year-old was coming off a productive, 7.5-sack season in 2013 but didn't fit with the youth movement in Jacksonville.

Babin can still rush the passer as a situational player. Given Rex Ryan's affinity for getting after the quarterback from multiple levels, Babin could be an intriguing addition to the coach's defense if helatches on in Florham Park.

I don't think it is such a surprise and I think they are just kicking tires.  Older vets that hang around can often come in cheap and it is good to see what they have in the tank while you evaluate younger players.  These guys do not require as much camp time to get ready.  The board has discussed him a few times in the last couple of years.  I think he and Groves are being considered for the Barnes SPR slot.  I think they will have in corners too, if there are any out there, but there are not going to be any corners to fit what we need.  We have enough intriguing players and no sure thing is out on the street in July.

Apparently its a done deal, according to Kim Jones.

 

 

Jason Babin has agreed to terms with Jets, according to someone familiar with negotiations. Two-year deal.

I am actually all for this. Would love to see what Babin has left in the tank, in green&white.

Really like this deal I'm excited about it. I think Babin can definitely still bring it and rush the passer effectively.

Good depth signing. Douzable and Babin on the second line isn't bad at all. Can't complain.

Can't see the downside here.  Probably an insurance policy for Antwan Barnes.   Coples, Pace, Barnes, Babin, the 7th rounder Reilly (am I missing anyone else) give us some depth and options.

Good depth sign I guess, this might be a red flag for Barnes since they are the same player. Both him and Barnes do nothing but rush the passer. I'm still suspicious of Babin since the Eagles and the Jags unceremoniously axed him despite getting pretty good sack numbers.

Makes sense.  Questionable secondary so you bolster the pass rush.  Reasonable.

I get sad, then I eat a sandwich. Kind of works out.

Is Babin a #1 possession burner receiver? If not, then Izdick needs to be fired. Immediately.

Makes sense, To many Unproven OLB's on the roster, plus It looks more and more like Barnes may be done?

Haven't seen anyone say it yet but it would make sense to me to keep Wilk fresh for later in season, this could be a move with that thought behind it. Someone was sayinbg how Big mo had a sack every game then in the last few only one because he was tired. Im all for making sure Wilk is strong during the PLAYOFFs

-I pretty much blame most of the Jets offensive problems on Brian "the worst play caller in the NFL" Shotty-boy....

It certainly doesn't seem like the team has much faith in Barnes to return strong.

At this point if I had to choose I think I'd pick Babin over Barnes. But who says they can't keep both?

Barnes should be well by now. HIs rehab has been taking forever. SO it might not actually be a choice. It might be that Barnes is done.

A situational guy to rush the passer- nothing wrong with that - how many Jets had 7.5 sacks or more last year
