JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - With a new general manager and head coach you knew change was inevitable for the Jacksonville Jaguars. In life and the NFL change can be a difficult thing to deal with. It means uncertainty, teammates and friends moving on, and hope that you still have a job yourself. For Jason Babin, who's gone through more change then almost anybody in the NFL, this could be the move he has been hoping for.
When Babin heard the news that the former Seahawk defense coordinate, Gus Bradley would now be the Jaguars head coach he went to the film room. "I called (Seattle defensive end) Chris Clemons and started watching tape, I definitely liked what I saw," says Babin.
The defensive end is on his third team in four years, but Bradley and Babin could be a perfect match. "His view point and approach to football, life and the journey we are all a part of is refreshing," says Babin of his new head coach.
Babin was picked up by the Jaguars off of waivers after week 12. He went on to collect one and half sacks for Jacksonville. The role he will be ask to play in the Jaguars defense could help elevate the 32 year old to pro bowl form. "I don't think I could ask for much more, being in that kind of defense and I asked to play the position I play." says Babin.
Babin and the rest of the new look Jaguars defense will get their first work on the field when the team opens up their veterans minicamp on April 16th.
