S Jordan Babineaux agrees to terms with Titans

Safety Jordan Babineaux has agreed to terms on a one-year deal

with the Tennessee Titans and is expected to join his new team by

Friday.

Agent J.R. Rickert announced the move Thursday with a statement

on his website.

”He is on a plane to Tennessee to sign,” Rickert wrote

Thursday night.

Rickert said Babineaux wanted to join his former secondary coach

Jerry Gray, who now is Tennessee’s defensive coordinator. Babineaux

spent his first seven seasons in Seattle, but Rickert says his

client took less money to go to Tennessee because of his comfort

level with Gray and the Titans’ front office.

Titans general manager Mike Reinfeldt worked with the Seahawks

before being hired by Tennessee in 2007. The Titans also signed

former Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck to a three-year deal

last week.

Coach Mike Munchak said he hadn’t seen Babineaux yet and expects

him on the field Friday. Cornerback Frank Walker signed Thursday

and was on the field hours later.

”Mike Reinfeldt is doing a great job,” Munchak said. ”They’re

bringing in people that will help this roster get better, and I

think these two guys will come in and will help us add some depth,

add some competition and we’ll see.”
