Jaguars re-sign Jason Babin

The Jaguars have re-signed veteran defensive end Jason Babin.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have re-signed veteran defensive end Jason Babin, the team announced on Thursday afternoon. Bringing Babin back was always an option for the Jaguars after he opted out of his contract prior to the start of free agency, but bringing him back now gives the team two veteran LEO ends on their roster.

Babin opted out of his deal prior to the start of free agency, giving the Jaguars an addition $6 million in cap room, but the veteran was attempting to get himself some guaranteed money heading into the season. Babin's old deal had no guaranteed money, so if he was released later in the process he'd be trying to find a team to fit on.

Babin, who led the Jaguars in sacks last season, will likely rotate with newly signed veteran Chris Clemons on the Jaguars defensive line at the LEO end position. The Jaguars have significantly more pass rush ability today than they have probably had in the past five seasons.
