Jacksonville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have released defensive end Jason Babin.

The 11-year veteran led the Jaguars with 7 1/2 sacks last season and had just re-signed with the team in March after voiding the final two years of his previous deal only three days earlier.

Babin started all 16 games for Jacksonville in 2013 and added 40 tackles. He had joined the Jaguars late in the 2012 season and played five games for the club after being released by Philadelphia.

The 34-year-old Michigan native has 62 1/2 sacks and 347 tackles in 130 NFL games with Houston, Seattle, Kansas City, Philadelphia, Tennessee and Jacksonville.
