Williams writes that the team’s trade for former Chargers backup Charlie Whitehurst probably means Hasselbeck — who has one year at $5.75 million remaining on his contract — is all but finished in Seattle.
Williams notes that Hasselbeck will be 35 in September, has missed nine games over the last two seasons and is coming off one of his worst seasons (17 touchdown passes, 17 interceptions, 3,029 yards):
… By releasing Deon Grant, trading Darryl Tapp and now trading for Whitehurst, (Pete) Carroll and (John) Schneider have shown that they are not afraid to make bold moves in order to change the makeup of this team. Trading Hasselbeck may be another move in that process.
Whitehurst has limited playing experience (he has yet to throw a pass in the regular season) other than the preseason, but the Seahawks liked him enough to fork over some valuable draft picks to the Chargers.
So i guess the question still remains, who really thinks Matt has another year in him, by that we mean a productive winning season??
