NFL Free Agency Speculation: Latest Matt Hasselbeck Rumors and Speculation

One of the biggest offseason topics of conversation, aside from when the offseason will finally be over, is speculation on where the Seattle Seahawks' starting quarterback will land in free agency.  

He has been rumored to land back in Seattle, along with settling in with the Tennessee Titans, Minnesota Vikings, Washington Redskins, Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills and 49ers.

After the draft, the 49ers are off the table, as they drafted Colin Kaepernick and are bringing Alex Smith back.  

Some question him landing with the Vikings or Titans, as they both spent early picks on what they believe will be franchise QBs.  I disagree with this assessment, as neither player looks ready to start in the NFL.  Hasselbeck would be a solid role-model and bridge for both of them.

The Cardinals are the most common rumor.  While they have a strong interest in Mark Bulger, he has stated he wants to stay on the east coast as a backup QB.  In addition, I don't see Hasselbeck being interested in playing for the Cardinals, explained in a later slide.

The Bills are very unlikely, as Hasselbeck wants to be a starter on a good team.  Also, they have a QB in Ryan Fitzpatrick; they need to give him another year to see if he can still grow into their long-term plans.

And for the record, I won't be talking about how Carson Palmer's future plays into what happens with Hasselbeck.
