Babin, 33, was picked up by the Jaguars in November after getting waived by the Philadelphia Eagles. He assumed a starting position and had 1.5 sacks for the Jaguars, finishing the season with seven.
Babin is expected to play the "Leo" role in coach Gus Bradley's new hybrid scheme, a position that should allow him to focus on what he does best -- getting after the quarterback. He has 55 sacks in his nine-year career and racked up 18 just two years ago.
Although Babin is expected to be ready for training camp, his absence opens up more reps for Andre Branch. Rookies J.D. Griggs and Paul Hazel could also be in the mix.
