Eagles won't match Babin offer

The Eagles won’t match the Titans’ offer for free agent defensive end Jason Babin, according to a team source.

Even though Babin is an unrestricted free agent, the Eagles put a clause in his contract that allowed them to match any offer within seven days. Tennessee offered a one-year, $1 million contract for the 29-year-old.

The Eagles acquired Babin during training camp last season and he eventually worked his way into the end rotation. In 12 games, he recorded 20 tackles and 2.5 sacks.

Also, safety Sean Jones signed a two-year deal with Tampa Bay. Jones, who had 72 tackles and two interceptions for the Eagles last season, was an unrestricted free agent.
