Jason Babin, New York Jets strike two-year contract

The New York Jets are adding another pass rusher.

NFL Media's Kimberly Jones reported Wednesday morning that defensive end Jason Babin agreed to terms with Gang Green, according to a source familiar with the negotiations. The contract is for two years, with the second year being a team option.

The Jets announced the deal early Wednesday. The team also announced that guard Willie Colon and linebacker Antwan Barnes have been placed on the active/physically unable to perform list.

The Jacksonville Jaguars, twice this offseason, cut Babin. The 34-year-old was coming off a productive, 7.5-sack season with 19 quarterback pressures in 2013 but didn't fit with the youth movement in Jacksonville.

Babin can still rush the passer as a situational player. Given Rex Ryan's affinity for getting after the quarterback from multiple levels, Babin is an intriguing addition.
