Ryan Van Bibber of SBN ranked each of the safety tandems in the league, and he has Michael Griffin and Jordan Babineaux as the 8th best pair in the league. Here is what he had to say about them:

Michael Griffin also got a franchise tag this spring, and signed a new five-year deal. That's the price to be paid for the kind of assurance he gives the team's backfield. Jordan Babineaux was easily the best former Seahawk to join the team last season.

That is some hard-hitting analysis right there.

I don't know that much about many of the safety tandems in the league, but I was pretty surprised to see the Titans coming in at #8. Babineaux was a solid addition last season, but he was by no means a game changer.

Griff has been more up and down than anyone since Vince Young. At his best, Griff has the chance to be one of the best in the league. At his worst, he is absolutely one of the worst in the league.

All of that being said, I am excited to see what these guys can do now that they are signed to multi-year deals and having a full offseason with Jerry Gray.
