Hasselbeck to hang it up after 2014 season

Not many players get a chance to decide when they want to walk away, as the game retires them, and then lets them know.

But Colts backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck told Alex Marvez of FOX Sports that he intends to retire after the 2014 season.

The 38-year-old Hasselbeck has settled into a comfortable spot as Andrew Luck’s backup, and they clearly thought he was a good part to have around at a reasonable rate (he signed a two-year, $7.25 million deal).

He’s a perfect veteran sounding board for a young quarterback poised to be a star for years to come, and unless something happens to Luck, he should be all they need in a backup for the next year and a half.

    Can’t wait to hear him in the broadcast booth. It’s where he belongs once he retires. Genuinely funny guy.

    I did not even know he was still in the league.

    I wish the Titans didn’t let him go. Mucho respect from this Titans fan.

    The only quarterback to take Seattle to a Superbowl! … only to lose it to bad reffing…

    Good luck Matt, Go Hawks!

    Knowing the Colts, they’ll back up Luck with some bum of a sixth-round pick QB.
