Predicting the Seahawks’ QB in 2011

Published on July 13, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

ESPN NFL analyst Tim Hasselbeck joined Brock Huard and Mike Salk of ESPN 710 Seattle for an interesting conversation on the Seattle Seahawks quarterback situation, including where his brother Matt Hasselbeck will wind up.

So who will be Seattle’s quarterback this season?

“Truth be told, I really don’t know,” Tim Hasselbeck said. “To be honest with you, I think that if it’s not Matthew, it’s Charlie Whitehurst. Just when you look at it, there’s way too many people acting like the Kevin Kolb to Arizona deal is done. And people who really don’t have a reason to put their neck out on it, but everyone has pretty much said this thing is done. It’s already been agreed upon, and it’s going to happen.

“So if Kevin Kolb goes to Arizona, then who is going to Seattle? So you just put yourself in the position of the Seahawks. You’re options are possibly Carson Palmer, who by the way is due to make an average of $11 million per year over the next three years. So you’re talking about $35 million I believe over the next three years. And you have to give something up to get him, for a guy who has not played better than Matthew. So that would be the best next option, and it sounds like a bad option to me

“The next option would be Kyle Orton. Listen, I think Kyle Orton is one of the more underrated quarterbacks in the NFL. But you’re talking about Darrell Bevell’s system, and at that point I would say that I don’t know if Kyle Orton is a good fit for that. And so I don’t know if you have a better option. Matthew might have a better option, but I know that all things being equal, he would like to be in Seattle.”

At the end of the conversation, Tim Hasselbeck was asked if his brother was given the option of a one year, $8 million deal in Seattle compared to a two-year, $16 million deal in Tennessee, where will he be?

“I think he’d be in a Titans’ uniform,” Tim Hasselbeck said. “Listen, it wouldn’t be his first choice, but at the same time it doesn’t make any sense (not to take Tennessee’s offer). Listen, here’s what I know. I think that John Clayton has reported that Matthew was offered a one year, $7 million deal. People were saying, ‘Aww man, he’s not worth $7 million dollars.’ Alex Smith is going to get a one-year, $5 million dollar deal. How does that make sense?”
