NFL Free Agent Rumors: Matt Hasselbeck Reportedly Won't Sign With Seahawks

Matt Hasselbeck has spent the majority of his NFL career with the Seattle Seahawks, and led the team to its only Super Bowl appearance. But now those days are reportedly over: Seattle Times reporter Danny O'Neil has learned that Hasselbeck will not re-sign with the Seahawks.

O'Neil also reports that the Seahawks may have made Hasselbeck a surplus player:

It appears the Seahawks have acquired another quarterback, negating the offer for Hasselbeck to re-sign.

Hasselbeck, who has been plagued by injuries in recent years, has been linked repeatedly to Seattle's NFC West rival in San Francisco and the Tennessee Titans, and would likely be a veteran stopgap player and mentor for whatever team he ends up with for the 2011 NFL season. Other logical destinations for Hasselbeck include Arizona and Minnesota.

Hasselbeck was one of the NFL's most productive quarterbacks in the past decade, leading Mike Holmgren's Seahawks to multiple playoff appearances and throwing for more than 3,000 yards in every season in which he has started 14 or more games.
