Report: Eagles cut Jason Babin to create cap space

According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, the Philadelphia Eagles waived defensive end Jason Babin to save some money by creating more salary cap space for themselves.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Babin was cut in order to save cap space and cash ($1.69 million on both counts) down the stretch.  The goal also was to give the team’s younger players a closer look, which means that the Eagles have essentially folded the tents on 2012.

With the dismissal of Babin, the Eagles have clearly moved on from the 2012 season and are looking forward to 2013.
