The New England Patriots did not place a waiver claim on Babin. In addition to the Jaguars, the Bills and Redskins placed a claim on Babin.
The Jaguars, with a 2-9 record, had the second-overall priority among all 32 teams.
The possibility of the Patriots claiming Babin was explored earlier Wednesday in this space. The Patriots, with an 8-3 record, would have nearly been last in line to be awarded Babin off waivers.
The Eagles waived Babin on Tuesday, which was a surprising move, as Babin was a highly coveted free agent in 2011. He finished last season with 18 sacks, third-best in the NFL. This season, Babin has 5.5 sacks through 11 games.
