Jason Babin won't go to Spain to run with bulls

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jason Babin will not be running with the bulls in Spain next month. Or the Bulls in Chicago either, for that matter.

Babin backed away from his earlier statement that he wanted to participate in the famous summer tradition in Pamplona when questioned directly by reporters on Friday.

"I'm not sure what you guys are talking about," Babin said, according to the News Journal of Delaware. "I'm a little confused. I'm not a big basketball fan but growing up I was a Bulls fan. I'm confused. I have a lot of bulls on my farm in Texas."

Babin said he didn't have a passport and "was a little hazy on the situation."

The 2011 free-agent signing had just returned from a vacation in Alaska when he discussed the idea with reporters on Wednesday. Eagles quarterback Michael Vick later said he didn't think it was a good idea.
