There is no doubt that the Saints could use Babin if he was just not having the right kind of fit with the Eagles. Of course that remains the big question mark with him.
This would be a New England Patriots-ish type signing by a team who simply believes that it was the Eagles and not Babin who was responsible for the decline in his performance and thinks they can turn him around.
When Babin was going to leave the Tennessee Titans I had thought he would be a good fit for the Saints and their pass rush woes. Yet the Eagles laid the cash on the table in 2011 when they were building the fabled “Dream Team.”
If the rumor is true and Babin will visit the Saints, then if he does clear the waiver wire he could be a fit in defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s system that is having trouble getting any quarterback pocket penetration.
