Source: Titans Agree to Deal with Hasselbeck
Former Seahawks quarterback will get a chance to start for Tennesee and mentor former Husky and Titan’s 2011 # 1 draft pick Jake Locker.
According to a person familiar with the agreement, the Tennessee Titans have reached a deal with quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.
The 35-year-old Hasselbeck has spent the past 10 years with Seattle, but the Seahawks reached a deal Tuesday with quarterback Tavaris Jackson. Seahawks GM Jon Schneider and Coach Pete Carroll called Hasselbeck yesterday to let him know that he would not be re-signed.
The Titans were looking for a veteran quarterback to help mentor rookie Jake Locker, the No. 8 overall draft pick. Veteran Kerry Collins announced July 7 he was retiring, and Tennessee plans to trade or release Vince Young likely before training camp on Friday.
