Matt Hasselbeck has announced his retirement from the NFL after 18 seasons.
He is joining Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown on ESPN. A 1998 sixth-rounder, Hasselbeck was Brett Favre's backup before moving onto Seattle and seizing starting duties for 10 years. He made three Pro Bowls, and started the 2006 Super Bowl. He finishes with 212 touchdowns across 209 NFL games. Wed, Mar 9, 2016 11:40:00 AM

The Big Lead reports free agent QB Matt Hasselbeck will replace Mike Ditka on ESPN's Sunday Countdown.

If accurate, it means Hasselbeck has decided to hang up his cleats after the Colts informed him he was not in their plans. An official announcement should come in the next couple days. Hasselbeck played surprisingly well in eight starts last season, but his 40-year-old body was beaten to a pulp. Getting out is probably the correct decision. Matt's brother, Tim, also works for ESPN.

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports the Colts have informed free agent Matt Hasselbeck he is not in their 2016 plans.

Although Hasselbeck started hot in spot duty for injured Andrew Luck last year, he became increasingly painful to watch as Hasselbeck's body deteriorated on the field the more he played. He simply could not make it through games late in the season. Per Silver, the Colts want Josh Freeman to be their primary Luck backup. Hasselbeck is an obvious retirement candidate going on age 41.
Sun, Feb 28, 2016 02:04:00 PM

Free agent Matt Hasselbeck is "strongly leaning" toward playing in 2016.

It's a bit surprising after 40-year-old Hasselbeck got beaten to smithereens in 2015. Hasselbeck was reasonably effective for a backup when he took the field, but highly prone to injury. He has zero arm strength downfield. Even if Hasselbeck officially decides to return, the Colts would do well to search for an upgrade behind Andrew Luck.
Thu, Feb 11, 2016 09:20:00 PM

The Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder reports Matt Hasselbeck will wait a few weeks to make his retirement decision.

Hasselbeck was competent in the first couple starts of his age-40 season, but he suffered multiple injuries behind a pitiful offensive line and eventually was forced out for good Week 17. Hasselbeck showed extreme toughness to play through his injuries, but his body may not hold up to another multiple-start campaign. Even if Hasselbeck returns, the Colts need to explore other backup options for Andrew Luck.

Colts.com’s Kevin Bowen expects impending free agent Matt Hasselbeck to return next season.

Hasselbeck played through multiple injuries this year, but showed he can still be an effective backup. He should return with the Colts despite entering his age-41 season. Hasselbeck is likely to sign for the veteran minimum.

Colts declared QB Matt Hasselbeck, LB Sio Moore, QB Andrew Luck, LB Trent Cole, QB Stephen Morris, DB Winston Guy, and DE Kelcy Quarles inactive for Week 17.

Donte Moncrief (toe) is active. Josh Freeman will start in Hasselbeck's place.
Sun, Jan 3, 2016 11:46:00 AM

Matt Hasselbeck (everything) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Asked Friday who would start for the Colts at quarterback against the Titans, coach Chuck Pagano replied, "No decision has been made yet."
Fri, Jan 1, 2016 01:39:00 PM

Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder, ribs) remained sidelined Thursday.

Hasselbeck has projected optimism, but it looks like the Colts might finally save their veteran quarterback from himself. One of the absurd trio of Stephen Morris, Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley will likely start against the Titans.
Thu, Dec 31, 2015 07:09:00 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano described Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder) as doubtful for Week 17.

He isn't going to play against the Titans after suffering a Grade 1 sprain in his throwing shoulder during Sunday's win over Miami. "Beat up from the feet up," Hasselbeck really shouldn't have been playing for several weeks.
Mon, Dec 28, 2015 04:19:00 PM

Matt Hasselbeck believes he is dealing with an AC sprain in his right (throwing) shoulder.

"We'll do an MRI Monday, but I think it's just an AC sprain," said Hasselbeck. "I’m not ruling anything out, but I’m not super optimistic about a seven-day return right now." Hasselbeck has been an ironman battling through several injuries, but this one will likely knock him out the rest of the season. With Andrew Luck extremely questionable, Charlie Whitehurst will likely start the season finale.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 08:22:00 PM

The Colts replaced Matt Hasselbeck with Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback in the second quarter of Sunday's game at Miami.

The injury was later announced to Hasselbeck's shoulder. Hasselbeck entered this one incredibly banged up. Before exiting, the 40-year-old was 8-of-15 passing for 99 yards and one sack taken. Hasselbeck has been declared out and later reappeared on the sideline with his right (throwing) arm in a sling.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 02:04:00 PM

Matt Hasselbeck (jaw, back, neck, ribs) is probable for Week 16 against the Dolphins.

He practiced in full on Friday. It's hard to believe Hasselbeck is really the Colts' best option right now with his endless list of injuries but he'll be under center Sunday in Indy's biggest game of the season. He's completed just 51-of-91 passes for two touchdowns and three interceptions during the Colts' three-game losing streak.
Fri, Dec 25, 2015 03:05:00 PM

Matt Hasselbeck (jaw, back, neck, ribs) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice.

Whether the Colts should play Hasselbeck, who has to drink his food this week because of a jaw injury, is up for debate, but it looks like he will be in the starting lineup. Whether or not he finishes the game is another matter entirely.
Thu, Dec 24, 2015 11:42:00 AM

Matt Hasselbeck (jaw) has been limited to "what amounts to a liquid diet" this week.

Hasselbeck took another beating last week against the Texans and can now add jaw to a list of ailments which also includes his back, neck and ribs. Despite being "beat up from the feet up," as coach Chuck Pagano put it, Hasselbeck refuses to yield. He plans to start Week 16 against the Dolphins, although it seems unlikely he finishes the game.
