Philadelphia Eagles Don't Want Jason Babin, but These 6 NFL Teams Should

The Philadelphia Eagles have released defensive end Jason Babin, but he's not washed up and is still capable of helping a playoff contender this season.

Eagles Insider also notes that head coach Andy Reid said the team let Babin go, "to give more playing time to some of younger guys in the defensive line rotation.”

Babin's production was down this season, but then again, so was the entire Eagles defense.

He only tallied 5.5 sacks through 11 games—a stark contrast to the 12.5 and 18 he respectively racked up in 2010 and 2011.

As noted on SI.com, "Claiming Babin off waivers would put a team on the hook for the remainder of the $5.575 million he’s owed this year (approximately $1.65 million), plus $4.225 in 2013 and $6 million in 2014 and ’15."

Still, it's a small price to pay if any team believes Babin can put it over the top in the playoffs.

So, which teams need to make the bold move to pick up this veteran pass-rusher?
