The hype surrounding the Eagles all throughout the lockout was that they were going to get an elite pass rusher. Albert Haynesworth seemed like a sure bet, except for that fact that he was under contract for a division rival that doesn't want to face him twice a year.
Several other big name defensive end free agents become possibilities. Ray Edwards and Charles Johnson were other candidates but at the end of the day the Eagles got the guy that they wanted and was the best fit.
Eagles' fans may have wanted a guy like Ray Edwards or Albert Haynesworth more, but Jason Babin will give the Eagles that elite pass rush they so desperately needed in 2010.
