Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck set to retire after 2014 season


After two sub-par seasons with the Tennessee Titans, former long time Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck drifted off into obscurity, signing a two-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts this past offseason to backup Andrew Luck.

It’s a pretty good gig, one that he’ll continue to ride out through next season before calling it quits as Hasselbeck recently told Fox Sports he will retire after next season:

Hasselbeck, who spent a decade under center with the Seahawks, attended three Pro Bowl’s in the process. The veteran signal caller also is the proud owner of over twenty (!!) career passing records for the Seahawks and a was elected as a member of their 35th anniversary team, despite still being an active player.

For a former sixth round draft pick, I’d say Hasselbeck had quite the solid NFL career despite missing out on the illustrious Super Bowl ring. Thankfully, he’ll still have two chances at securing one.
