The Eagles had a chance to re-sign Jason Babin after the 2009 season and passed. This time around, they didn't, and Babin is now set to join the team for his second tour of duty in Philadelphia, this time on a five-year deal.

The news, as first reported by Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, makes absolute sense because of the personnel change on Philadelphia's coaching staff.

As CBSSports.com's own Clark Judge notes, the addition of Jim Washburn as Philadelphia's defensive line coach makes Babin -- who played under Washburn in 2010 when he registered 12.5 sacks with the Titans -- a perfect fit for the Eagles.

This leads us to the question that Pete Prisco asked when he ranked Babin 21st on his Top-50 free agent list: "Can he do it again?"

Well, yes, he can. Although he's a little longer in the tooth at this stage, he's clealry got the talent and with Washburn bringing out the best in Babin. Add in the aggressive defense that the Eagles are known for and there's certainly a recipe for continued success.

That's funny a Big Ben fan talking garbage about Michael Vick's true colors. Irony?
