01:18 PM ET 11.28 | The team with the NFC's best record, the Atlanta Falcons, have "zero interest" in recently released pass rusher Jason Babin, according to Rebecca Haarlow of NFL Network. Babin, who registered 18 sacks last season with the Eagles, was abruptly released by the team on Tuesday, just one day after a Monday night loss to the Panthers -- the team's seventh straight in a season that has spiraled downward. The Pro Bowl defensive end was in just the second season of a five-year deal with the Eagles. The Falcons were thought to be a potential destination for Babin, who could line up opposite veteran John Abraham who is still going strong in his 13th season in the NFL. The Falcons abruptly released one of their own pass rushers earlier this month when they let go of Ray Edwards, one of their big offseason free agent acquisitions. But Thomas Dimitroff and the Atlanta organization are apparently not interested in adding Babin.

Pro Bowler one year, and cut by one of the worst teams in the NFL the next? Interesting league.

I agree there may be more to this than we know but I wouldn't mind seeing him n Burgandy and Gold.

I was wondering if he was about to take a 4-week Adderal vacation.

Yeah... all this talk of him getting to go to a better team.

Poor guy got picked up by one of the very few teams worse than Philly.

And the entire Eagle defense. None of them are getting to the QB. Trent Cole only has 1.5 sacks on the year.

Although Jason Babin always had something borderline retarded to say. Everything from comparing the 2011 team to the Miami Heat to ripping his own fans. God only knows what he'll have to say about Jacksonville.
