Tennessee Titans Release Matt Hasselbeck

Matt Hasselbeck has been released from the Tennessee Titans. It is unknown at this moment whether he will retire or look to continue his NFL career with his 4th NFL franchise.

The Titans look to move forward with Jake Locker at quarterback, the draft pick from Washington. But injuries forced Hasselbeck to take the helm this season. In 5 games he had a 2-3 record but proved he could still possibly fill a role as a game manager on a team. He completed 62.4% of his passes, the 4th highest completion percentage of his career which spans 14 seasons.

The Titans however have lost targets, like Jared Cook, and Hasselbeck isn’t getting any younger. He will turn 38 this September and is well past his prime.

Most likely him retiring seems logical unless he can get a deal with a team to be a back up. The Arizona Cardinals are always looking for a quarterback, and Hasselbeck could certainly do better than any of the 4 quarterbacks they played last year with Larry Fitzgerald. But the disarray in Phoenix makes that option unattractive, and a health risk even.
