He will be 35 when the season begins, one year older than Bulger, and even though he had a rocky 2010 season, he performed well in the playoffs. Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt certainly knows him well having faced him two times per season in the NFC West.
The Seahawks will probably have to pass on Hasselbeck for him to fly to Arizona.

A little leverage would never hurt Hasselbeck either.
