Matt Hasselbeck 'Hopeful' He Returns To Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks are in an interesting position with the 2011 NFL draft because we're not quite sure what will happen with QB Matt Hasselbeck. Some people aren't optimistic he'll be back in Seattle as the two sides didn't come to an agreement on a contract extension before the lockout.

If it were up to Hasselbeck, it sounds like he would be back.

"I'm definitely hopeful that I'll be able to stay in Seattle, but at the same time I understand the first thing's got to happen first and that's definitely reaching some kind of labor agreement.''

Really, the Seahawks may not have many other options other than to bring him back. If the lockout rolls into training camp, it may simply come down to a time issue. Without training camp, it would be awfully difficult to prepare a new quarterback for their system.

If the Seahawks decide to pick a quarterback in the NFL draft, things will get interesting in Seattle. In the end, though, the safe move would be to bring Hasselbeck back.
