PHILADELPHIA ó The Eagles have released two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Babin in the first major roster move for a team thatís 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.
Coach Andy Reid says the Eagles cut Babin to give more playing time to younger players.
Philadelphia (3-8) plays at Dallas (5-6) on Sunday night.MORE IN Sports Wire
