Confirmed: Babineaux returns, Terrill out

"Big Play" Babs is back. According to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network, the Seattle Seahawks have re-signed Jordan Babineaux, making room on the roster by reportedly releasing defensive tackle Craig Terrill.

Terrill confirmed his release via twitter: "Thanks to the Seahawks for 6 great years," he said.

The Seahawks confirmed the move this afternoon.

Babineaux was scheduled to earn a base salary of $2.45 million this season, so by cutting him and signing him to a veteran's minimum of around $800,000, the Seahawks saved money.

And they also saved money by cutting Terrill and his $1.1 million base salary for the season.

Seattle only had three safeties on the roster in Lawyer Milloy, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, and certainly could use another body in the back end of the defense.

If this is the end of Terrill's tenure in Seattle, it has been a pretty productive one. A fifth round selection in the 2004 draft, the 30-year-old played six years in Seattle, with four starts, finishing with 90 tackles (66 solo), 8.0 sacks and a fumble return for a touchdown while ranking second in club history with five blocked field goals.
