    When the Titans signed safety Jordan Babineaux to a two-year contract extension last offseason, it was partly a reward for what he’d done in 2011.

    In his first year with the Titans, the former Seahawk racked up 117 tackles while starting 14 games.

    It was also viewed as a promise of things to come. Babineaux was expected to settle in as the team’s regular starter at strong safety in 2012, opposite Michael Griffin, no questions asked.

    It ended up being a much more turbulent season than he expected, however.

    The Titans ended up starting third-year safety Robert Johnson the first two games of the season instead. Babineaux eventually got his job back, but he was benched on at least two occasions by defensive coordinator Jerry Gray during the middle of games. In the season finale, Al Afalava started in his place at safety.

    At season’s end, Babineaux acknowledged it was a frustrating year.

    “It was that kind of year, and it started from the very beginning with highs and lows,’’ he said. “The main thing you want to do as a player is to perform consistently throughout. You want to minimize errors and bad performances and things like that and work to be a more consistent player.

    “For me, it was as up and down year. But … despite the circumstances, I still was able to accumulate over 90 tackles and got my hands on one interception this year. There’s always room for improvement, and trying to find ways to get better.”

    Babineaux finished the year with 92 tackles in 12 starts. He played in all 16 games.

    With one year left on his contract, he hopes to be back with the Titans in 2013. Babineaux played his first seven NFL seasons with the Seahawks.

    “Certainly I want to come back,’’ he said. “But you never know what’s going to happen, and you can’t control everything.”

    Hopefully on another team. Sorry Babs, but you sucked this year. Time for you to go. You were never that good to begin with, just replaced the terrible Chris Hopeless.
    GoT, Laserjock and Just Win Baby high five this.

    He's going to go from worst player on the defense to among the best almost instantly this off season. All we have to do is move him to the practice squad where he belongs.

    I honestly wish the Titans would start all over with both Safetys. Griffin and Hope were only good when our D-line in '08 was the best in the league. Titans got wise to Hope but for some reason re-signed Griffin. While he has random good games, he has played just as bad as Babs. Why didnt we resign Cortland and let Griffin go to Rams? Either way, I guess another terrible year or poor 2ndary play will be what is takes.
