Agent: Babineaux agrees to terms with Titans
Thursday, August 4, 2011
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Safety Jordan Babineaux has agreed to terms for a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans.
Agent J.R. Rickert announced the move Thursday with a statement posted on his website.
Rickert says Babineaux wanted to join his former secondary coach Jerry Gray, who now is Tennessee's defensive coordinator. Babineaux has spent his first seven years in Seattle, but Rickert says Babineaux 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.
