Jason Babin is a relentless pass rusher with a non-stop motor who will look to provide depth at defensive end for the Titans in 2010.

Babin played his first two seasons as an outside linebacker with the Texans before moving to his current defensive end position.

• Babin has been training for an opportunity to play in the NFL since his teenage years in Paw Paw, Mich., where police used to get complaints from people in his neighborhood about someone running down the street with a stolen tire.
