HAHA. Move another one over to the deceased column. Actually, spin move another one over to the deceased column. The Eagles released Jason Babin.

 

Andy Reid’s statement: "We appreciate everything that Jason has given this team over the last couple of years. We wish him the best as he continues his career. By releasing him today, this gives us an opportunity to give more playing time to some of the younger guys in the defensive line rotation.”

Reid is a dangerous man with a gun right now– he has nothing to lose (and pretty much nothing to gain), so it seems he'll try anything. You have to wonder what happened though. Babin hasn't been good, but he still leads the Eagles with 5.5 sacks. There's likely much more to the story than giving younger guys more playing time.

In March, Jason Babin talked to the WIP about job security. In retrospect, these comments are hilarious:

“Franchise tag, it’s a lot of money. But at the same time it’s a scary proposition because, you know, if you get hurt before the season, during the season, you know… they can release you and only pay you medical, which is substantially lower, I think. There's risk involved. Everyone loves a long-term contract. There’s a variable you can’t measure: the hierarchy, the feeling.”

 

Babin had a signed a five-year, $27 million contract before the start of last season. The Eagles will only have to pay him $600k of his signing bonus after this year.

Perhaps the best part of this? The joyous reaction from CSN's Reuben Frank, who got into it with Babin's wife on Twitter earlier this year:

It's pretty dark, Jason.

  1. Somewhere Buddy Lembeck is upset for his best friend. Hopefully Walter Powell still has room in the house because Charles is coming back!

  2. With Reid moving OL Coaches to D Coordinators, I’m surprised he didn’t try to make Babin our new starting LT before releasing him…

  3. babinfanclub.com is fucking priceless! the idiot has his news page autorunning off of google alerts and every story on there is about his mediocre play. what a stoonad.

  4. I hope Jason Babin dies. I hope he god damn dies. I hope that RHEA HUGHES squirts diarrhea all over his face and in his mouth. Then she’ll whip out her bulbous 45 inch penis and fuck him in his bleached asshole…then shell burn off those disgusting tattoos with her vaginal discharge, which is an acidic viscusy slime that burns through steel. After feeding him discharge stew with a side of his own tattoo skin and shit, I hope she throws him screaming from a helicopter into a sheet of metal spikes, that no good snooki worshipping pile of trash. Just before he dies, he has to watch all of us fans he insulted penetrate his “wife” rectally, orally, and in the cunt. I get to impregnate her though so back the fuck off youfaggots. Fuck you babin, eat my fungus ridden toe nail clippings.

  5. Honestly… everyone that is as big of a fan of this news as I am, should run out and buy a curry jersey. The kid is just likable and literally played babin off of this team last night.

  6. @What’sthat? Yeah Curry is definitely likeable. Especially the fact that after getting stomped by the 2nd worst team in the NFL, he said “We played well” and started talking about his accomplishments.

  7. Thank god I hate that fucking asshole, and bob shut the fuck up that fucking assclowns was the poster child for the reasons why this team is so bad and so unlikeable, your probably just saying that because you have those fucking gay tribal tattoos

  8. you “so called” beagle fans are hilarious, crud and vulgar! reminds me why i absolutely loathed living in your sewer for an entire year.
    ring count:
