Appearing on 710 Seattle Radio on Thursday, ESPN’s John Clayton said that the Seahawks have offered free agent Matt Hasselbeck a one-year, $7 million contract. Clayton was asked about the possibility of the Titans signing Hasselbeck, as has been heavily speculated in the national media.
He estimated that No. 8 pick Jake Locker will be making $7-8 million in his first season. “(The Titans) are not gonna offer $7 million — which is what Hasselbeck’s been offered (by Seattle) — and then have $14 million tied up in the quarterback position, and then really just have Matt as a transitional guy. … I think Kerry Collins would be willing to accept $3, 4 or 5 million.” Clayton still believes the Seahawks will re-sign Hasselbeck.
