PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Jason Babin is the kind of guy who likes adventure. Whether it be skydiving, hunting bear with a bow and arrow or wild boar with a knife, or swimming with sharks. “I’ve been doing this since I was a kid,” he told 94WIP’s Howard Eskin on Saturday morning.
Running with the bulls may have to be one of those adventures that he has to wait a few years to add to the list.
“There are probably going to be some discussions monday morning at Novacare,” Babin said about his desire to run with the bulls. “My coach is my boss. I’m the kind of guy who does what my boss says.” Babin said he’ll be attending a wedding that will put him in the vicinity of the running.
“The Eagles are paying me so much money that everyone is so up in arms about it. Which I guess I understand,” Babin said. “I’ve been very fortunate, being drafted early. I don’t do this anymore for cash, I do this for my love. Playing the game and the kind of style I want to play. It’s obvious the when I play the way I play, whether the commissioner tells me to or not, I play because I love it.”
