Tennessee is looking for a potential starter to play while Jake Locker gets ready. And compared to Kerry Collins, Hasselbeck looks like a kid just entering his prime.
John Glennon of the Tennessean points out another connection that goes beyond connecting the dots. Titans offensive coordinator Chris Palmer said he’s known Hasselbeck since 1986, and is close with the whole Hasselbeck family.
Moving East to play in a new system could sound a little daunting to Hasselbeck, but perhaps the familiarity with Palmer could help push the deal along.
The Titans should have money to spend at the position after getting more than $15 million in salary off the books with the end of Collins and Vince Young’s contracts.
