Matt Hasselbeck: Minnesota Vikings Quarterback in 2009?

NFLGridironGabSenior Analyst IJanuary 7, 2009


After Sunday’s outing by Tarvaris Jackson in the Vikings wild card loss to the Eagles, there is no doubt that the team will look at the QB position with great interest in the offseason.  Look for the Vikings to do something, whether it be in the draft, through free agency, or a trade. Today’s Pioneer Press is reporting an interesting rumor about Seahawks veteran QB Matt Hasselbeck making a move to the Twin Cities.

Here is the tidbit:

A more realistic and practical objective, though, might be to trade with Seattle for Matt Hasselbeck, 33, who probably would be available for a second-round draft pick. The Seahawks, 4-12 this season, need to rebuild. Hasselbeck has run a pure West Coast offense, which Vikings coach Brad Childress likes to run.

The Hawks have to rebuild after an awful season, and they do have a young QB in place in Seneca Wallace. With Mike Holmgren gone from the Hawks, it may be time for Hasselbeck to move on as well.
