Ravens linebacker Jason Babin was released by the Ravens on Tuesday.
The Ravens were desperate for help at outside linebacker after Terrell Suggs (Achilles) suffered a season-ending injury, but Babin ultimately just made things worse, with his primary impact coming via careless penalties. Given how poorly he played, the 35-year-old Babin might not get another shot in the NFL.
The Jets are expected to part ways with defensive lineman Jason Babin on Saturday, a source told the New York Daily News. Babin totaled 25 tackles and two sacks in 16 games last season.
The Jets will bring back outside linebackers Jason Babin and Calvin Pace for the 2015 season, the team announced Saturday.
Pace, who is scheduled to make $2.125 million next season with a $125,000 signing bonus, finished his 11th season last year, totaling 39 tackles with five sacks.
Babin is due $1.35 million next year with a $125,000 signing bonus and totaled 25 tackles in 2014 with two sacks in all 16 games.
Poor production has basically pushed Jets outside linebacker Quinton Coples to the bench. The 2012 first-round pick barely played Thursday night against New England. He was replaced by Jason Babin.
Coples hasn't recorded more than two tackles in a game and has just five on the season. The game against the Patriots marked his first non-start of 2014. His fate appeared set when Babin took more reps than him in Week 6 against Denver. Although Rex Ryan downplayed that, Coples' benching against New England spoke volumes about his thoughts.
The following players will not suit up for the Jets Thursday night against the Eagles: Kenrick Ellis, Jason Babin, IK Enemkpali, Kyle Wilson, Calvin Pryor, Troy Davis and Antwan Barnes.
