When the Philadelphia Eagles waived veteran defensive end Jason Babin on Tuesday, it set off a mad dash to see which team would be awarded Babin on a waiver claim.
In the end, the Jacksonsville Jaguars were awarded Babin, based on their having the second-worst record in the league. Waiver claims are awarded in reverse order of records.
The Kansas City Chiefs had first crack at Babin, but they passed. The Jaguars were next in line, and they jumped.
At first, it was reported that the Raiders were one of eight teams that placed a claim on Babin. The league’s personnel notice confirmed that only the Jaguars, Bills and Redskins placed claims on Babin.
