How does that work? If a team claims him, do they have to pay him his Eagles salary? Could the Giants sign him and roll a continuous 3DE set between Tuck, Osi, JPP and Babin?

Claiming Babin off waivers would put a team on the hook for the remainder of the $5.575 million hes owed this year (approximately $1.65 million), plus $4.225 in 2013 and $6 million in 2014 and 15.

If he clears waivers and becomes FA he should come to Chicago

Bears can move Peppers to DT fulltime on passing downs (He flips between DT/DE already) and roll with deepest DL in NFL IMO

Babin at LDE
Melton at DT (6 sacks)
Peppers at DT (6 sacks)
Idonije at DE (5 sacks)

Wootton (4.5 sacks) + McClellin (3 sacks) coming of bench as part of DE rotation
Paea (1.5 sacks) and Collins at DT rotation

Perhaps if the Giants didn't exist that would be true.

Babin is 4-3 DE

He doesn't fit 3-4 D (I believe he already tried to play LB in a 3-4 in Houston)

Giants got that win but they need to hold on to it throughout the next entire month.

With Jackson out, the Giants now have literally 0 reasons to lose to the Eagles.

Well, the odds of my fantasy football team making the playoffs don't look too good.

I'm not really much of a football fan and the only reason I'm in this league is because two of my brothers, who are huge football fans, are in it. At least one of them has no chance to make the playoffs.

Guess the Giants thought that Bradshaw and Wilson weren't reliable enough to carry only 2 RBs. Imagine that.

But Brick Top, no one should have too much faith in Bradshaw's feet.

Also, I'm still waiting for Wilson to escape the dog house.

He lost Coughlin's trust. He just needs to continue to put his head down and work hard on special teams and the few other touches he gets, while avoiding putting the ball on the ground like his life depends on it.

From what I've read from various writers, the musings are that Wilson is not a great pass protector. I can't really confirm this with my two eyes though because he barely plays.

It also doesn't help his case when Bradshaw is an excellent pass protector.

I feel like I've heard this elsewhere too. I think he'll get some carries Monday. The timing of his first fumble was just way too much of a perfect storm for Wilson coupled with Brown's emergence.

Keep getting 25 yards per return on command and he'll get his looks, I'm not worried about that in the slightest.

Considering TC continues to march out David Diehl, I've started to really hate the "DW needs Coughlin's trust" narrative. I love TC to death but when it comes to who to play, sometimes he lets his feelings cloud what would be best for the team.

Though DW could be an awful pass protector, who knows. If it's because he fumbled that one time, though, then TC is not helping the team.

At the very least, he is a 3-4 linebacker with legal problems. Set to make 4 mil next year on his current deal.

I heard there was a heated argument between him and a coach. If I was the Giants, I would look hard. From what I remember from his draft year he is very talented although I don't follow the West Coast NFL teams very heavily. What are your thoughts on him as a player?
