Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck Still 'In Shock' That The Titans Cut Him
More than a week after being released from the Tennessee Titans while in the Bahamas, quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is trying to process the news.
"I'm still in shock a little bit," Hasselbeck said Tuesday, according to The Tennessean. "It happened so fast."
While Hasselbeck wasted no time finding a new team -- he signed a two-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts later that night -- it's clear he hasn't moved fully on with separating the close bonds he forged in Tennessee.
"I thought it was a possibility, but when I left for vacation, I definitely didn't think I would come back as not a member of the Titans," Hasselbeck said.
" ... It just feels weird to not be a member of the family anymore. And I just had a lot of pride for putting the foundation for (head coach Mike) Munchak's first year, and now not to be a part of it, it is disappointing more than anything else."
Hasselbeck added there's no ill will toward the Titans. The thing that still puzzles him is the two-year, $6.5 million contract the team gave to Ryan Fitzpatrick.
"The only 'hmmm' thing I ever had really is when Fitzpatrick's deal, hours later, was a half-million more than I was ever offered," Hasselbeck said. "Maybe that just meant they had more wiggle room and we never got to that point, I don't know."
