Matt Hasselbeck won’t re-sign with Seahawks

Published on July 26, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has reportedly told the Seattle Seahawks he will not re-sign with the team.

The Seattle Times reported that the 35-year-old Hasselbeck told the team on Tuesday that he is done in Seattle.

He has been with the Seahawks since the team acquired him from Green Bay in a trade on March 2, 2001.

Multiple outlets, including the Seattle Times, say the Seahawks will now turn to former Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson.

Hasselbeck eventually won the starting role in Seattle and in 2003 started all 16 games, guiding the Seahawks to a 10-6 record and a wild card berth. He earned his first Pro Bowl selection that season and went on to get a spot on the Pro Bowl roster in 2005 and 2007.

Last season, he started 14 games and the Seahawks won the NFC West division despite a record of just 7-9.

Hasselbeck returned from a hip injury and helped Seattle to a shocking wild card win over the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints, passing for 272 yards and four touchdowns. The Seahawks lost the next week to the Chicago Bears.

The Boston College product guided the Seahawks to the playoffs six times, including a trip to the Super Bowl during the 2005-6 season, but they lost to Pittsburgh.

Over his career, he has completed 60.1 percent of his passes for 29,579 yards, 174 touchdowns and 128 interceptions.
