When it comes to quality quarterback play in the NFL, not every team in the league will be blessed to have a player talented enough to lead their team to the promised land.
Former NFL quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has been retired for three years now, but at least one team in the league needed some help at the position so bad, they called him to see if he would be interested in playing.
According to The Ringer’s Kevin Clark, Hasselbeck said he received a phone call from a playoff-contending team at some point during 2018 asking if he was “in shape and available to sign.”
Hasselbeck also reflected on taking some final hits at the end of his career.
“I wasn’t eating solid food for a couple of weeks,” he said. “They tested me for a concussion. It wasn’t, but I couldn’t hear out of my right ear. I hurt a joint near my ear. So you get rid of those crown-of-the-helmet hits. You get rid of the full body weight falling on a player.”
