Per reports, eight teams put in claim for ex-Eagles defensive end.

Jason Babin's desire to play for a contending team were dashed Wednesday when the Jacksonville Jaguars claimed him off waivers, per multiple reports.

Babin was let go by the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday and according to reports, eight different teams put in a claim on the 32-year-old defensive end who is one season removed from an 18-sack campaign.

Babin has just 5.5 sacks this season, and the well-traveled pass rusher now has the AFC South hat trick, having begun his career in Houston and spending a productive 2010 season with the Tennessee Titans.

It's a good gamble by the Jaguars, who are trying anything they can to jumpstart a 2-9 team. Babin won't get his wish to play for a contender, though, unless the Jags can somehow put the pieces together quickly enough to be competitive in 2013.

@AdamSchefter: As it turns out, Buffalo and Washington claimed former DE Jason Babin as well - priority to Jaguars.

@JasonLaCanfora: The Redskins and Bills also claimed Babin, in addition to the Jags, who were awarded him

@MikeGarafolo: Need to correct: Per the NFL waiver wire, only three teams put in claims for Jason Babin, not eight.

@AlbertBreer: According to the NFL's daily transaction report, only the Bills, Redskins and Jaguars put in claims on ex-Eagles DE Jason Babin.

Why didn't Babin just refuse to sign a contract? Hell no we won't go (to the Jags)
