Let's Sign Babineaux's Brother


Recommended Posts

Not even kidding. Well sort of kidding. Honestly I'm not sure if I'm kidding or not.

He's only 31 too (better than the Bones of Ed Reed as another poster put it)

Seattle Seahawks[edit]

Babineaux was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Arkansas University on April 29, 2004. He was a member of the practice squad following training camp, and signed to the active roster on November 26, 2004.[3] In Seattle he is known as "Big Play Babs".[4] He earned this nickname after a game-changing interception against the Dallas Cowboys on October 23, 2005. He intercepted a pass by Drew Bledsoe and returned the ball to the Cowboys' 32 yard-line with five seconds left in the game, setting up a game winning Josh Brown field goal.[5]

On January 6, 2007, late in the final quarter of the Wild Card game against the Dallas Cowboys during the 2007 NFL playoffs, Babineaux made a diving, game-saving ankle tackle of Dallas quarterback and place kick holder Tony Romo, who was scrambling to the end zone with the football after bobbling the snap for what might have been a winning field goal. The tackle stopped Romo inches short of a first down, and about a yard shy of a touchdown. As a result, Seattle took possession on downs and had a 21-20 victory.[6]

In September 2007, Babineaux signed a 5 year extension to remain with the Seahawks. The deal was worth an aggregate value of between $ 10 - $ 17 Million. While he could have tested the free agent market, Babineaux's loyalty to the Seahawks organization and the fans of Seattle, along with his desire to lead the Seahawks back to the Super Bowl, were all factors in keeping the versatile defensive back in Seattle.[7]During the 2008 NFC Wild Card Game against the Redskins he made an interception and returned it 57 yards for a touchdown which secured a win for the Seahawks.[8] Babineaux used his versatility to play cornerback, safety, and special teams.

He was suspended for the first game of the 2008 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.[9] The Seahawks opened the season away at Buffalo, losing 34-10.[10] For the 2009 season, Babineaux beat former starting free safety Brian Russell for the starting job during the pre-season.[11] In 2010, Earl Thomas became the starting free safety, forcing Babineaux to go back to a backup role.[12] He mainly played in the nickel and dime defense as a cornerback. One of the Seahawks' formations (the "Nickel Babs") is named after him.[13] He also was a key special team player. He finished the season with 46 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumbled and 2 interceptions. He also scored a safety, the first of his career.[14]

Tennessee Titans[edit]

Babineaux signed with the Tennessee Titans on August 4, 2011.[15] On October 2, 2011, in a game against the Cleveland Browns, Babineaux returned an interception 97 yards for a touchdown.[16][17] He re-signed with the Titans in March 2012, this time for a 2-year deal worth up to $5 million.[18] Babineaux was released on March 12, 2013.[19]

Yeah, he's too far out of the league. If we're forced to pick up another FS we should go the trade route. All the available FAs look like garbage. Find a team with good depth and offer a pick or something.

Crossing my fingers Lowery's concussion isn't too bad, but I no longer have faith he remains healthy for the season. We need a vet to go with Southward.

Yeh I agree on the trade. I'm just trying to find amusement in the fact that we have no starting FS.

Man I wouldn't bank on Lowery. Concussions are serious business and the one he had last year ended his season... I would like to hope but I doubt he will be back.

They seemed hopeful it wasn't bad... That being said i think i'd rather roll with South than a 31 year old over a year removed from football. I just really don't think he'd still be able to play.

Yea I dont think he could either. Just lightening things up in the face of scary uncertainty. I'm still pissed about Rafael Bush.
