He's subject to waivers. You can never have enough pass rushers.

The NFL's waiver wire process applies to players who have less than four seasons of league experience. He's been in the league for like 10 years.

Now released, Jason Babin must go thru waivers. As @AlbertBreer reminds me, like Moss in 2010. Rare a player like this is available

Someone with a pass rush need will probably claim him ahead of us. He'd be more of a luxury for us.

Yes please. Babin actually could make some sense for Denver if he clears waivers.. We have over 10 million in cap space, run a 4-3, are a contender, and he would allow us to kick Wolfe inside to his natural position more often.

Don't expect it to happen, but there are some decent reasons why it could.

that team has tuned him out and needs a new voice.

i'd be totally down with the Broncos snagging Babin.
would help us add some additional pass rush at DE and if he plays well would allow us to stave off taking a DE early in the draft next season.

That's because you can't be in your 10th year with your sack totals on the fast decline meanwhile you suck against the run.

No thanks. We don't have a problem with QB pressure and sacks. We rank #1 in sacks with 37. If we could use somebody, it would be a massive DT that can eat up blockers and help stuff the run.

You just agreed with me.. It's that very skill set why I don't want him. And I understand he might help them, but schematically he doesn't fit their flexible defense. Not to mention I'm not afraid of him on the opposing team..

You simply don't sign somebody just because they MIGHT be able to help another team and you want to prevent that. That is fantasy talk, not the real world. You sign guys that help YOUR team. He would not help us much. Again, the Broncos lead the NFL in sacks. They don't need a 10 year vet who's sacks are starting to tail off big time, and especially one that sucks against the run.

You're exactly right

Waivers
An NFL player may be waived by his current team for reasons of performance or declining skill. Anytime a player is waived between Feb. 1 and the trade deadline (the end of the sixth week of the NFL season), the player is free to negotiate a new contract with any team. However, if a team waives the player after the trade deadline, he is subject to the waiver claim process--by reverse order of the NFL standings. Any player claimed in this capacity is granted additional rights based on whether he has a no-trade provision in the player contract. A player with a no-trade provision may become an unrestricted free agent immediately following that season. A player without a no-trade provision may become an unrestricted free agent following the next subsequent season. If a player without a no-trade provision is signed only through the current season, he may also declare for free agency immediately after the season.

Well according to the link the Pats come before us in terms of record so on waiver wire they would get first pickings before us. Then you look at all the playoffs pictures they're the 3rd seed and we are the 4th seed.

I would be betting that Lombardi is probably right. He probably called an inside sorce. I don't know what the website did, but I find it interesting that they seem to know where he is visiting.

My question is: If he goes thru the waiver process, then why would he "visit" teams? In other words, why would you pre-arrange visits to teams if you don't know who claimed you yet? This isn't FA. In the waiver process, you don't visit teams, you get claimed, then you go to that team...only.

Unless they clear waivers which would mean the teams would not have to pay his full contract terms that are left on it.

That way they can make sure he fits their mental scheme as well as have doctor clear him.

How dare you post a reasonable analysis...anything other than knee-jerk reactions of "sign him!" are frowned upon here.

There are reasons why the fan base here in Philly are HAPPY he is gone, and it is mostly because of lack of production...the rest is the piss poor attitude and lack of work ethic.

I wonder if he's being scapegoated? I don't really care one way or the other if he comes to the Broncos. I think he would bring an advantage, but I see it as more of a luxury than a necessity. It just seems to me that the entire Iggles team has a piss-poor attitude, and the guy who gets the boot, sometimes also gets the blame. Whether it's true or not, who knows?

There goes that fantasy logic again.

What don't you people understand. Team don't spend millions and millions to sign a player because they think said player could help another team. Especially a player like this, who is on the fast decline in terms of production. I can just hear it now. John Elway says to Bowlen "Hey lets sign this guy for millions. I doubt he will get on the field much for us because he really really sucks bad against the run, even Doom is much better against the run then this guy, and honestly, his sacks numbers are absolutely horrible and he's not getting good pressure either, not to mention he was released for attitude problems, so in the end I don't think he can help us much at all, but there is a remote chance he might be able to help the Patriots by getting 2 sacks the rest of the year".


Good grief people - use your brains. Teams DON'T sign players to keep them away from other teams. It DOES NOT work that way. Ahh well, maybe if some of us here say enough times, it might get through those thick skulls.

What don't you people understand. Team don't spend millions and millions to sign a player because they think said player could help another team. Especially a player like this, who is on the fast decline in terms of production. I can just hear it now. John Elway says to Bowlen "Hey lets sign this guy for millions. I doubt he will get on the field much for us because he really really sucks bad against the run, even Doom is much better against the run then this guy, and honestly, his sacks numbers are absolutely horrible and he's not getting good pressure either, not to mention he was released for attitude problems, so in the end I don't think he can help us much at all, but there is a remote chance he might be able to help the Patriots by getting 2 sacks the rest of the year".


Good grief people - use your brains. Teams DON'T sign players to keep them away from other teams. It DOES NOT work that way. Ahh well, maybe if some of us here say enough times, it might get through those thick skulls.

But good teams ARE always looking to upgrade their rosters. Are you telling me that ALL 53 players on our current roster are better than Babin? And I'm calling BS on your claim that it NEVER happens.....if he presents a roster upgrade, AND serves the "anti-New England" purpose too....then so be it.

Someone needs to take their Midol.

I don't think we actually know what is going on in that Eagle's lockerroom. Was Babin the cause, or a scapegoat? Like I said, sometimes the guy who gets the boot gets the blame, not because it is true, but because it is convenient. Given the way Dawkins was hemming and hawing in that interview, I think there is more going on than just stuff you can blame on one guy. Any team that looks at him will have to do some intense interviewing and a little investigative background stuff in Philly, no doubt. But it could also be true that Babin wasn't performing because the work atmosphere in Philly is toxic. If that's the case, some team might get a steal.

HOWEVER, don't forget the white team's advantage at kicker and punter, not to mention all the gritty white undrafted NON GLORY BOY-TYPES who would hustle down the field on special teams for Team Whitey!

Hilarious!

You should feel free to stand in a shower with your lady and awkwardly try to find a comfortable position to screw in while she hogs all the hot water and you're standing behind her shivering like a goddamn hobo.

Good question. Makes no sense. It's going to cost them $1 million to have him for the rest of the season and they're going nowhere. I guess they want him for next year.

I would have been fine with him going to the Pats. He is so bad at run stopping, we gain yards while keeping Brady on the sidelines.
