Jason Babin Not Opposed to Being with the Eagles Again

Could Jason Babin be back with the Eagles in 2011? Seems that he’s open to the idea.

Pro Football Focus recently did a Q&A with free agent to be Jason Babin and he had a couple interesting Eagles-related answers. PFF’s Steve Wyremski asked Babin if there is any bad blood between him and the Birds that would prevent him from coming back and reuniting with his defensive line coach, Jim Washburn: “No, I think any and all feelings if they were bad could be waived by a healthy contract.”

Babin had 12.5 sacks (sixth in the NFL) last season in Tennessee, and having turned 31 last month, he’ll be looking to cash in once teams are allowed to start bidding for his services. Babin has spoken glowingly of Washburn since the moment the Eagles lured him away to coach their defensive line, and that continued in this interview: “The thing about the defensive scheme we had last year with Washburn and Chuck Cecil is that they were really smart about what they did.

A lot of defensive coaches say, “This is our defense, this is how were playing, and this is what we’re doing exactly.” Well, there’s injuries, change in personnel, and different people so everything has to be curtailed to what you have to work with. Those guys did an amazing job of saying, “these are the tools we have and weapons we have … what’s the best way we can use them.” They don’t have a cookie cutter scheme. They looked at what guys did well and let them excel at it.”
