Matt Hasselbeck cut

Matt Hasselbeck cut, Before anyone jumps off the deep end, I’m not saying that this will happen, or even should happen.  But at the risk of sensationalism, the possibility isn’t that far fetched.  The Titans have been on a bit of a spending spree in free agency as of late which is all well and good.  They had money to spend and are doing so, and the way they are spending the money has been well received.  Their biggest signing was to offensive guard Andy Levitre, and although they paid him well for a guard, he didn’t break the bank.  So far they have spread around what they had to spend and are trying to cover all their bases. By all calculations, however, the Titans should be done spending.  They entered free agency with about $18M to spend in cap room this year.

Hasselbeck, 37, spent the past two seasons with Tennessee, leading the Titans to a 9-7 record and just missing the playoffs on a tiebreaker in 2011 in coach Mike Munchak’s debut season coming off the NFL lockout. But the Titans used the No. 8 draft selection overall in 2011 on Jake Locker, and they named him their starter for 2012. Hasselbeck, a former standout at Xaverian and Boston College who led the Seahawks to an appearance in Super Bowl XL, was due to count $7.5 million against the salary cap made him too pricey to keep. According to USA Today, Hasselbeck won’t be unemployed long. The paper is reporting Hasselbeck is close to signing with the Colts to back up Andrew Luck. Settlemen
