Jaguars cut defensive end Jason Babin

Vteran defensive end Jason Babin has been cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

He was signed to a three-year, $7.275 million contract filled with incentives and roster bonuses that included $500,000 guaranteed.

That came in the form of a $500,000 roster bonus paid on the sixth day of the league year.

He doesn't get a $1 million scheduled nonguaranteed base salary, a $500,000 roster bonus if he had made the 53-man roster for the first game, a $21,875 per game active roster bonus, $675,000 in incentives, and a $100,000 incentive for playtime and Pro Bowl.

The Jaguars had signed him to a new deal days after he voided the last two years of his original deal.

Babin, 33, led the Jaguars last season with 7.5 sacks.

He started every game.
