Will The Bucs Court Matt Hasselbeck?March 18th, 2013
It’s widely known that the Bucs courted turnover machine Matt Cassel to push/compete/mentor/cater to Josh Freeman. So Joe can’t see any reason why the New Schiano Order wouldn’t want to purse Matt Hasselbeck, who is a better quarterback and has proven to be a willing and capable backup.
Hasselbeck was released by the Titans today because they didn’t want to pay him $5 million and change for 2013. He turns 38 in September and was 2-3 as a starter last season, completing 62.4 percent of his passes, including seven touchdowns and five interceptions.
The guy’s won playoff games and made a few Pro Bowls. The Bucs could do a lot worse, and Joe suspects Hasselbeck knows a hell of a lot more about playing QB than the Bucs’ new quarterbacks coach.
