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
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
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
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.”
