Notebook: Eagles begin shakeup, waive Jason Babin

The Eagles released two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Babin in the first major roster move for a team that’s lost seven straight games.

Babin had just 5.5 sacks after recording 18 last year. He signed a five-year, $28 million deal last summer after going to his first Pro Bowl with Tennessee following the 2010 season. The move came Tuesday, a day after a 30-22 home loss to Carolina dropped the Eagles to 3-8 and last in the NFC East.
