Hasselbeck already talking about deal with Colts

Matt Hasselbeck’s time as an unemployed backup quarterback may be short.

According to USA Today’s Mike Garafolo and Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean, Hasselbeck is “already in discussions” with the Colts after being cut by the Titans earlier this afternoon.

The report said he could sign to be Andrew Luck’s backup soon.

While other quarterbacks have illusions of starting, Hasselbeck is apparently past that. The 37-year-old would provide a veteran mentor for Andrew Luck, and more than replace what the Colts lost when Drew Stanton went to the Cardinals.

We wonder how many exclamation marks Jim Irsay would have for Hasselbeck if they finish the deal.
