Should we sign Jason Babin? He was just released by the Eagles. It's not like he's a total bust this year he does have 5.5 sacks so far and was superb last season. He would be in a rotation of Clemons and Irvin, but you can never have enough quality pass rushers.

I wouldn't mind it but i think most of his production was due to the wide 9 technique and he doesn't seem very good at playing the run he could be good in a Irvin type role.

I was on break at work and went on espn on my phone and saw they released him and first thing i said was we should make a run at him.

Would be nice to have another pass rusher to go along with Clemons and Bruce. We can even play him inside on pass downs and have all 3 rushing the passer at once. Like Osprey said you can never have to many pass rushers!!

We should call him and ask if he plays well on the road. If yes, then we should sign him to a 6-year deal.

Laughing Sounds about right

He's really not that great. He wasn't near as good as his numbers indicate last year either. Now that's not too say he's not an above average pass rusher.

But no, I wouldn't want to sign him before he passes through waivers. His contract is way too high. Even than, I wouldn't want him to start over Irvin or Clemons. So if he wants to sign for the vet min as a backup? I'd definitely take him. But I'd rather keep Clem and Bruce as our starters in pass rushing situations.

The only way we'd get him is by claiming him and I don't want to do that because of the contract. I doubt he'd sign with us for a vet min and reduced role.

I would be shocked if he didn't sign with the Lions. They have playoff aspirations but a tough road to get there. Plus they run a not dissimilar scheme so it could be a good fit. And he went to University at Western Michigan and grew up there.

The Carolina Panthers make some sense as well with Sean McDermott running the defense there and he's familiar with Babin.

NFL.com also had the Falcons as a possible landing spot as a sort of replacement for the failed Ray Edwards experiment. I just think there are too many places that make more sense than Seattle in terms of team needs and what Babin wants.

Just some info - here's the top 12 in waiver wire priority.
1. Chiefs 2. Jaguars 3. Raiders 4. Browns 5. Panthers 6. Chargers 7. Bills 8. Titans 9. Lions 10. Cardinals 11. Jets 12. Rams

this is a great question. I say YES!, He would make a great back-up/rotational player behind Clem along with Irvin.... This would add even more pass rush and also give Clem & Irvin some rest throughout the remainder of the year... and if he pulls an ala. Raheem Brock and gets us some big sack numbers it just might be the spark to get us to the playoffs.

Don't think he wants to come back...

I think he would be more than willing to comeback, I read an interview with Babin, and Babin said Mike Holmgren told the coaching staff not to coach him (Babin) because he (Babin) was Tim Ruskell's free agent pick up and this is when the two where butting heads on very decision near the end of their terms as GM, Head Coach....

I think if the Hawks reached out to Babin without Holmgren or Ruskell here he would jump at the chance to comeback... and I think it would be a good move to at least take a look at him, I mean other than Clem and Irvin, who else on this team has over 5 sacks on the year?, None.
