Matt Hasselbeck will retire after 2014 season

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

The 38-year old quarterback plans on spending one more season in Indianapolis before calling it quits.

Matt Hasselbeck says he wants to spend one more year backing up Andrew Luck in Indianapolis then hang up his cleats.

The 38-year old Hasselbeck, who is best known for his nine-year stint as the Seattle Seahawks' starting quarterback, told FOX Sports that he plans to retire following the 2014 season.

"I’d like to do one more year than call it a career," Hasselbeck said. "I’m hoping for a good year this year and next."

Hasselbeck, currently in his 15th NFL season, signed with the Colts after spending his previous two years with the Titans. His two year, $7.25 million contract is set to expire after 2014. He has yet to make an appearance for the Colts this season.

Hasselbeck served as the starter for Seattle from 2001 to 2009, earning three Pro Bowl selections and leading the Seahawks to a Super Bowl appearance during that span. He entered the league as a 6th-round pick by the Green Bay Packers in 1998.

During his career he has accumulated 3,031 completions, 34,554 yards, 201 touchdowns and 147 interceptions.
