As Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union notes (on Twitter), Babin could re-sign with Jacksonville at some point, especially if the Jags come up empty in free agency. General Manager Dave Caldwell has said that he’ll be keeping his options open when it comes to the two-time Pro Bowler (link).
Babin, who turns 34 in May, played in all 16 games last season, racking up 31 tackles, 7.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and two passes defended. The well-traveled veteran has been with five clubs over the course of his NFL career and assuming he doesn’t double back with any of them, he could be on his way to No. 6.
