Now that the draft is over, the Seahawks have to start thinking about what is going to happen at the QB spot for them in 2011 and beyond. There’s been a lot of talk as of late about Matt Hasselbeck NOT coming back in 2011, and even teams like the Niners and Cards (two NFC South teams) have reported interest in hi.
The Tennessean picked up a story about former Seahawk and now ESPN talking head Trent Dilfer, who seems to somehow already know that Hasselbeck will not be a bird (at least with the Hawks) in 2011.
One former Seahawks quarterback delivered some interesting news this morning regarding a current Seahawks quarterback. ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer said that veteran QB Matt Hasselbeck will not be returning to the Seattle next season, which would seem to open a door for the Titans to make a run at him. The front office has plenty of Seattle ties – with general manager Mike Reinfeldt, vice president of player personnel Ruston Webster and director of pro scouting Lake Dawson all having spent time in the Seahawks organization. Hasselbeck is 35 years old, but he started 14 regular-season games last season. His numbers for the regular season were not especially impressive – 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions but he perked up in the playoffs, completing 48 of 81 passes for 530 yards, with seven touchdowns, one interception and a 102.4 quarterback rating in two games.
