QB Matt Hasselbeck Faces Pay Cut Or Release From Titans
Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck wants to return to the Titans next season, and he said dialogue about a restructured contract continues between his agent and the team, John Glennon of the Tennessean reports.
But the 37-year-old, 14-year veteran is realistic enough to know it might not work out, and that he could be cut.
“Well, yeah, if we can’t come to an agreement, I guess that’s what they’d have to do. That’s just how it goes,” Hasselbeck said Thursday. “Right now I’m working out hard, getting prepared and ready, trying to have the best year I can. Again, I’m really hopeful that it’s here, but I understand that some things are more out of your control.”
Hasselbeck, entering the third and final year of his contract, is scheduled to make $5.5 million in base salary. Including bonus money, he would count $7.5 million against the salary cap.
With Jake Locker the starter, Hasselbeck will have to take a pay cut.
“I believe in what we’re doing. I believe in (general manager) Ruston Webster and (coach) Mike Munchak. I believe in my teammates like Jake,” Hasselbeck said. “But … anything can happen. Surprises come. We’ll see. I don’t know. Some of it is out of my hands, and some of it is in my hands.”
