Falcons, Jonathan Babineaux agree to 3-year extension
The Falcons and defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux have agreed to a three-year extension, the team announced Tuesday.
Babineaux, 32, ranked 65th in CBSSports.com's free agency rankings. Last season, he played in all 16 games and had 42 tackles and a sack. The 2005 second-round pick out of Iowa has spent his entire career in Atlanta.
The Falcons are coming off a forgettable 4-12 season in which Babineaux was one of the few bright spots on defense. According to ProFootballFocus, he was one of only four defensive players with positive grades on the season, along with defensive lineman Corey Peters, linebacker Stephen Nichols and cornerback Desmond Trufant.
As a unit, Football Outsiders ranked the Falcons' D 29th in the league (25th against the run, dead last against the pass), ahead of only Dallas, Green Bay and San Diego.
