Falcons declared DT Jonathan Babineaux, OT Cameron Bradfield, OT Jonathan Scott, LB Tyler Starr, CB Javier Arenas, WR Freddie Martino and QB Sean Renfree inactive for Week 8 against the Lions.

Babineaux (knee) was expected to play, so he may have suffered a setback. Everyone else is a healthy scratch.

Falcons re-signed DT Jonathan Babineaux to a three-year, $9 million contract.

Babineaux, 32, has spent his entire nine-year career in Atlanta since being a second-round pick in 2005. After re-signing DT Corey Peters last week, the Falcons are returning their starting defensive tackle duo. They need to continue to seek upgrades at the position and have been linked to free agent DTs Paul Soliai and Randy Starks. Babineaux is just a run stuffer at this stage of his career.

The Falcons are reportedly closing in on a three-year deal to re-sign free agent DT Jonathan Babineaux.

At age 32, Babineaux shouldn't be expensive. He's coming off a 42-tackle, one-sack season as a run plugger up the gut.
Tue, Mar 11, 2014 11:45:00 AM

The Falcons are in "active talks" with free agent DT Jonathan Babineaux.

The Falcons are looking to bring back their starting defensive line after signing Cory Peters earlier this week. Babineaux, 32, could command a two- or three-year contract. Free agent reserve DT Peria Jerry is not expected to be retained.
Sat, Mar 8, 2014 02:48:00 PM

Free agent DT Jonathan Babineaux said he wants to re-sign with the Falcons.

Babineaux has been with Atlanta throughout his nine-year career. He's not a pass rusher, but remains an asset against the run and has piled up 15 tackles for a loss over the last two seasons. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution suggests a "modest" two- or three-year contract.

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff says the team would like to re-sign impending free agent DT Jonathan Babineaux.

"He's becoming a little bit ageless," quipped Dimitroff. "It would be nice to have him back." Although Babineaux managed one sack among 16 starts in 2013, he graded out as one of Atlanta's top run stuffers per Pro Football Focus, and has spent his entire career as a Falcon. At age 32, his price should be reasonable.
Mon, Dec 30, 2013 03:11:00 PM

There has been no progress on a new contract for impending free agent DT Jonathan Babineaux yet.

Babineaux has been a diamond in the Falcons rocky defense this season, recording seven tackles for a loss and two fumble recoveries while grading out as a top-15 interior run stuffer per Pro Football Focus. The problem is that contract talks will be complicated by his age (32) and salary demands (he's making $4.7M in 2013). The Falcons could choose to go younger at defensive tackle by re-signing fellow impending free agents Corey Peters and Peria Jerry.

Falcons DT Jonathan Babineaux recorded 8.5 tackles for loss in 2012.

The number ranked him second among all defensive tackles in the category, behind Bills two-time Pro Bowler Kyle Williams. Pro Football Focus graded Babineaux out as its No. 35 defensive tackle, mainly because he struggles against the run. The 31-year-old has one year left on his contract at $4.7 million. Atlanta needs to find a run-stuffer to pair with Babineaux on the interior.
Sun, Apr 14, 2013 11:19:00 AM

Falcons DT Jonathan Babineaux (knee) and SLB Stephen Nicholas (calf) have both resumed practicing.

Babineaux's return could provide a very big lift for an Atlanta defense that doesn't have a sack in its last three games. Babineaux is a difference-making pass rusher on the interior. Nicholas is stout in run defense and excels in coverage. These have been big missing pieces over the past few weeks.
Wed, Oct 5, 2011 04:13:00 PM

Falcons declared DT Jonathan Babineaux, CB Darrin Walls, RB Antone Smith, LB Spencer Adkins, C Todd McClure, G Mike Johnson and DE Cliff Matthews inactive for Week 2 against the Eagles.

Slot receiver Harry Douglas is active just one week after suffering a concussion. Peria Jerry will spell Babineaux, who is expected to miss 3-to-5 weeks with a partially torn MCL. Joe Hawley will start in McClure's place.
Sun, Sep 18, 2011 07:02:00 PM

Falcons DT Jonathan Babineaux will miss 3-5 weeks after suffering a partially torn MCL in the season opener.

Babineaux won't go under the knife, but he could opt for surgery after the season. If Corey Peters (knee) can return this week, he's a prime candidate to take Babineaux's spot in the starting lineup. Either way, it's a major downgrade. Babineaux is easily Atlanta's best all-around defensive tackle, racking up 10 sacks and four forced fumbles over the past two seasons. The Falcons were expected to work out free agent DT Derek Landri Tuesday.
Tue, Sep 13, 2011 05:34:00 PM

Falcons DT Jonathan Babineaux underwent arthroscopic shoulder surgery during the offseason.

The 29-year-old says he's back to 100 percent, so it shouldn't be an issue this season. Babineaux was average against the run last year, but graded out as a top-15 pass rushing defensive tackle, according to Pro Football Focus.
Tue, Aug 9, 2011 06:14:00 PM

Falcons activated DT Jonathan Babineaux from the reserve/suspended list.

He'll start against Arizona. Babineaux's absence was glaring in the opener, as Atlanta's interior line was pushed around by Maurkice Pouncey and company, with Rashard Mendenhall rumbling for 135 total yards. Babineaux's primary job is to pass rush, but he's also plenty capable in run defense.
Wed, Sep 15, 2010 01:39:00 PM

NFL suspended Falcons DT Jonathan Babineaux one game for violating the league's Personal Conduct Policy.

He'll also lose one game check, worth $260,000 of his $2.2M salary. The Falcons' best interior pass rusher, Babineaux's ban results from his 2009 arrest for possession of marijuana. The 28-year-old finished last season with six sacks, two forced fumbles, a pair of recoveries, and 47 tackles.
