Cullen: Babin a "home-run hitter"

Jason Babin needed only minutes to realize his scene had changed. Babin, a two-time Pro Bowl defensive end who was acquired by the Jaguars off waivers Wednesday from the Philadelphia Eagles, capped a whirlwind 48 hours by participating in his first practice in Jacksonville early Thursday afternoon. He wore a long sleeve shirt to the practice . . . For a while, anyway. A very short while.

Fabulous Four: Jaguars versus Buffalo Bills

4. Addin’ Babin. We begin this pre-Buffalo Bills Fabulous Four with the biggest Jacksonville Jaguars news of the week – that is, the Wednesday waiver-wire acquisition of defensive end Jason Babin. The move at first glance is a departure for the Jaguars, who in recent seasons typically have avoided pursuing released veterans in favor of drafting and developing. Jaguars Head Coach Mike Mularkey, asked late Wednesday if the move marked a change in philosophy, said it was more a case of signing a player who has been very successful the last three seasons.
