JR Rickert is pleased to announce that his client Jordan Babineaux, a native of Port Arthur, Texas, has agreed to terms on a new two-year contract with the Tennessee Titans. Terms of the deal were not released. Rather than test the free agent market, Babineaux decided to stay in Tennessee where he racked up 93 tackles, a forced fumble and an interception for a touchdown as a safety for the Titans defense.
Babineaux was originally an undrafted free agent from Southern Arkansas University and signed with the Seattle Seahawks in 2004. After 7 seasons with the Seahawks in various defensive back roles, Babineaux joined the Titans as a free agent in 2011.
“I really took a liking to Tennessee and they really made me feel comfortable. I was hoping that it would work out for me to stay here and I’m glad it did,” said Babineaux.
Babineaux has over 500 tackles in his NFL career and played in Super Bowl XL for the Seahawks in 2006. He is also known for tackling Tony Romo in the famous “K” ball incident in a playoff game during the 2007 season. He earned his nickname “Big Play Babs” for his knack for coming up big in key situations. In 2011, he returned an interception 97 yards for a touchdown.
“I am very familiar with Coach Gray’s (Titans Defensive Coordinator Jerry Gray) system and it allows for me to make plays from a number of areas on the field,” said Babineaux.
Titans’ fans can now get used to watching # 26 roam the secondary and making big plays for at least the next 2 seasons.
