This is good to hear. Babinaux is more than just a backup DB. He can play any position in the backfield, and can line up against larger receivers that Jennings and Wilson might struggle with.
Not to mention, he's just a pure football player, making plays when he's needed the most.
John Clayton brings us the news:
The Seahawks rewarded versatile defensive back Jordan Babineaux on Tuesday by giving him a five-year extension worth $10 million. There are enough incentives and escalators in the deal that could make it worth as much as $17 million.
Included in the deal is $3 million of guarantees. Babineaux, who was set to become a free agent after the season, is now signed through 2012.
The 25-year-old Babineaux has been one of the Seahawks' key targets to re-sign since the start of the season.
What a good time to play this old clip again, eh? On the stat sheet, this was just a tackle. But in our hearts, this was a franchise-defining moment.
And in the wake of Sunday's fake audible from hell, it's good to remember.
