Matt Hasselbeck: Is He the Seattle Seahawks' Best Option at QB?

Once the snow cleared, the Seahawks began to soar in Chicago; will Hasselbeck pick up where he left off to finish the 2010 season?

When the Seahawks decided not to draft a quarterback in 2011, in addition to trading a 2011 third-rounder for Charlie Whitehurst last offseason, the statement made by Seattle was not largely expected; more fuel was simultaneously injected into the will/should Matt Hasselbeck return to Seattle fire.

Nearly a month later, as the collective “we” wait in limbo as the NFL and players stay at odds in their negotiation towards a new collective bargaining agreement, Hasselbeck remains a popular topic for discussion—a discussion that’s “fun to talk about,” as GM John Schneider put it during draft-week pressers, but the Seahawks have remained outside the circles of conversation.

The 2011 draft dust has settled, now awaiting the 2011 free agency storm, one that could be like no other. Seattle has multiple plans to address the position via free agency once free agency opens; that’s all we truly know.

Hasselbeck may be a large part of those plans, possibly the focus of plan A, but should he be? How much of his value hinges on the availability of other quarterbacks? Has anything really changed between the two sides since the lockout began? Is he Seattle’s best remaining option for 2011?
