PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Eagles, in a midst of a seven-game losing streak and with their defense struggling, released defensive end Jason Babin on Tuesday.
Babin’s release came after the team had earlier placed starting receiver DeSean Jackson on injured reserve with fractured ribs.
“We appreciate everything that Jason has given this team over the last couple of years. We wish him all the best as he continues his career,” Eagles head coach Andy Reid said in a statement.
Babin, 32, had a career-best 18 sacks for the Eagles last season after re-signing with the team as a free agent two offseasons ago with a five-year, $28 million contract.
He had 5.5 sacks this season.
