Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times reports Kerry Collins’ retirement means that Tennessee will almost certainly be looking for a veteran quarterback to bridge the gap until rookie Jake Locker is ready to start.
Not only that, but three of the Titans’ top front-office executives came from Seattle: Mike Reinfeldt, Ruston Webster and Lake Dawson. That means they’ve got some familiarity and a great deal of affection for a certain follically challenged quarterback who’s unsigned at the moment.
So is Tennessee a possible landing spot for Matt Hasselbeck? Absolutely. The question will be how much money Titans owner Bud Adams will pony up to pay a free agent knowing that he’s also going to be on the hook for Locker’s rookie contract.
