Jason Babin: Eagles 'kind of a big socialistic system'

It looks -- and sounds -- like Jason Babin was just waiting for the right time to pounce.

Uncharacteristically quiet when he was unceremoniously waived last month, Babin let loose on the Birds today during a conference call with Titans media.

"You saw how dirty they did (Jim) Washburn with leaking out the false stories and the way they talked about him on the way out," Babin said via Adam Caplin on

"It's kind of a big socialistic system that they have. I didn't really care. I'm only going to worry about what I can control, and that's practicing hard, working hard and playing hard on Sunday."

Babin's 18 sacks were third-most in the league a season ago but he managed just 5.5 through 11 games this season when he was released by the Eagles on Nov. 27. He was claimed by the Jaguars a day later.

"They have a different approach and a different style than I do," Babin said. "It's upsetting because they knew what they were getting when they hired me. I don't know if they were going to try and change me. My stripes are kind of already the way they are, the way I practice, aggressive, loud, the way I play the game.

"I don't know, I just guess they thought they could change the way I went about my business. I feel like I got the way I got because of how I practiced and worked and lived and played. I look at it as a great opportunity for me."
