There was no AFC West efforts to claim defensive end Jason Babin.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Buffalo and Washington put in a claim in addition to Jacksonville, which was awarded the pass-rusher. He was cut by the Eagles on Tuesday. There were previous reports Oakland and San Diego put in claims for Babin. But according to Schefter, that is not the case.
