It’s been a rough season for the Atlanta Falcons, and that’s putting it nicely.
This was an organization with high hopes—Super Bowl hopes to be frank—but with just two weeks left in the 2013 season, the Falcons find themselves at 4-10. Atlanta won’t make the playoffs, let alone the Super Bowl.
With games against San Francisco and Carolina coming up, it’s hard to see the Falcons’ season ending on a high note. Every off season ushers in change, but off seasons following a potential 4-12 season? Those are usually pretty rough.
Despite the bad vibes though, Falcons’ defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux, who will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, seems committed to the process in Atlanta.
According to quotes via Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com, Babineaux was to finish his NFL career where it started, Atlanta:
“I definitely want to finish my career here in Atlanta,” he said. “I started here. I’ve been through the good times, the bad times. And I definitely want to finish here. So, we’ll have a lot of time for that in the offseason – for them and me to decide on something. Hopefully, I’ll be able to continue my career here.”
Babineaux has spent nine seasons in the NFL so far, and all nine have been with the Falcons. He’s accumulated 241 total tackles, 23.5 sacks and three interceptions.
