As numerous reports surfaced this weekend regarding whether defensive end Aaron Kampman was going to visit Philadelphia before he signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars, one of the Eagles' unrestricted free agents received a lot of attention from other teams.
Here's one thing that's very interesting to note. Even though Babin's an unrestricted free agent, the Eagles reportedly worked into his contract last year that they have the right to match any offer he receives, according to Adam Caplan of Scout.com and a fixture on Eagles Live! (which is tomorrow at noon by the way).
Babin was a first-round pick of the Houston Texans in 2004, but struggled in the transition from a 4-3 defensive end to a 3-4 outside linebacker. Babin played in Seattle and Kansas City before landing with the Eagles in the middle of last year's training camp. A fan favorite because of his intensity, Babin played in 12 games and recorded 2.5 sacks as a situational player.
The Eagles other unrestricted free agents are safety Sean Jones and linebackers Jeremiah Trotter and Tracy White. That's not including running back Brian Westbrook and linebacker Will Witherspoon who were released Friday.
