Colts’ Backup QB Matt Hasselbeck Open To Playing Beyond 2014


Colts backup QB Matt Hasselbeck recently mentioned that he is open to playing beyond the 2014 season, despite previously suggesting that he was prepared to retire next year

Ideally, that would be a dream come true,” Hasselbeck said, via “There’s no timetable where I need to make a call on that but I set a short term goal of finishing my contract. I’m close to accomplishing that and if I do, I’ll have to figure out a new goal.”

Hasselbeck, 38, is entering the final year of his two-year, $7.25 million contract and will make a base salary of $1.75 million for the upcoming season.

Hasselbeck has actually a sought after backup quarterback on the open market a few years ago, so I’m sure the Colts would be glad to have him back if he wanted to continue playing.

Last year, he appeared in three games for the Colts completing seven of his 12 passing attempts for 130 yards and an interception.
