Titans working on deal with Jordan Babineaux


The Titans locked up one half of their safety duo by slapping the franchise tag on Michael Griffin and now they’re reportedly close to a deal with the other half as well.

Terry McCormick of Titans Insider reports that talks about a new contract for strong safety Jordan Babineaux have progressed well. They can’t announce a deal with him until after free agency opens on the 13th because Babineaux played the 2011 season on a one-year veteran’s minimum contract after signing as a free agent following the lockout. All signs point to a deal being done by that point, however.

Babineaux had a strong rebound season after losing his starting job in Seattle in 2010. He had 93 tackles and one interception while starting 14 games in Tennessee.

With their safety spot squared away, the big focus for the Titans in free agency would seem to be the defensive line. They could lose Jason Jones, but even his return wouldn’t do enough for them to stop looking for other ways to upgrade along the front. The Titans feel they have enough talent at corner to survive the loss of Cortland Finnegan and upgrading the pass rush from the line would go a long way toward making that belief come true.
