The free agency parade continued at One Bills Drive Friday as Kansas City free agent defensive end Jason Babin was in Orchard Park to meet with the coaching staff. Babin was on three different NFL rosters in 2008, before finishing the season with the Chiefs.
Just before the start of the regular season the pass rusher was traded to Seattle for safety Michael Boulware on Sept. 1 and Babin played against the Bills in the season opener. Three weeks later the Seahawks released him due to a rash of injuries at the receiver position.
Babin was picked up by the Chiefs on Nov. 12 and played against the Bills again in Week 12. For the year he had 31 tackles and two sacks. He has 15 sacks in his six-year career, which has been limited due primarily to playing time opportunities.
The pass rusher began his career as a 3-4 outside linebacker with the Houston Texans, who made him a first round pick in 2004. Babin has since bulked up to 260 pounds to play end for the Seahawks and Chiefs this past season.
