At a time when multiple teams were believed to be chasing veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, the former Seahawk has decided to join the Titans.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Hasselbeck has agreed to terms on a multi-year deal. Titans beat writer Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean has confirmed it.
It’ll be interesting to see the specifics of the financial package, given that the Titans used the eighth overall pick in the draft on quarterback Jake Locker.
First-year head coach Mike Munchak recently said that he wants a veteran who can mentor and compete with Locker and Rusty Smith.
Hasselbeck was a backup for two years in Green Bay, before being traded to Seattle. He was the starter with the Seahawks for 10 seasons (my gosh has it been that long), leading the team to Super Bowl XL and numerous other playoff appearances.
He has a career passer rating of 82.2, with 176 touchdowns, 128 interceptions, and nearly 30,000 yards.
