Not very possible.
I could be wrong but if you put in a waiver claim there is nothing to negotiate, you have to pay what is left owed to him this season which is $1.6 million. Once he clears waivers, which would be after today then he is free to sign with whomever he wants and negotiate a salary. Again I could be wrong but I believe that's how it works.

Cant visit 4 teams in one day... It takes damn near 1/2 a day just to fly from Houston to New Orleans...

Presently he is visiting teams.

It was a front office move to start releasing these guys early. This is the end of the Reid Era in Philly and Babin frankly was becoming a bit of a whiner.

That being said, he's looking for a short term contract with a team that has a shot playing the post season. He's still got a LOT left in the tank and we haven't had a end pass rusher worth his water in a few years...

I say, grab him!

Jaguars secure Jason Babinís contract

APWhen defensive end Jason Babin was cut by the Eagles, he probably thought heíd be upgrading his chances of playing for a contender.

If he did, he thought wrong.

Per a league source, Babin was awarded to the Jaguars, who at 2-9 were second on the priority list. At this point, itís not known who else made a claim for his contract; itís only known that the Chiefs, who have top priority, didnít.

The next question becomes whether Babin will make noise about being involuntarily shipped to a bad team, which now holds his rights through 2015. Apart from playing for a bad team, Babin will now be playing in London once per year over the next three seasons.

If Babin opts to retire in lieu of playing for Jacksonville, the Jags would be able to recover $900,000 in signing bonus money, along with the remaining proration of his signing bonus for 2012, which by our calculations is another $88,000.Plus, heíd be giving up $1.69 million for roughly a month of work.

Word around Detroit has been they would be interested if he cleared waivers ... didn't want to foot his contract. Jags got him?, it's all water under the bridge now.

No the eagles are done and over the cap so they are shutting everything down that they can.
