Cortland, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Jets have agreed to terms with linebacker/defensive end Jason Babin.
The 11-year veteran was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars last month after leading the club with 7 1/2 sacks last season. He had just re-signed with the Jaguars 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 to his sack total. He had joined the Jaguars late in the 2012 season and played five games for the club after being released by Philadelphia.
The well-traveled 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.
To make room on the training camp roster, the Jets released cornerback Lowell Rose.
The Jets also placed guard Willie Colon and linebacker Antwan Barnes on the active physically unable to perform list with knee injuries.
