Matt Hasselbeck Returning To Colts For Another Season

Intro: On Thursday night, the Colts agreed to terms with backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck for another season.


INDIANAPOLIS – Backup quarterback won't be an offseason worry for the Colts in 2015.

On Thursday night, the Colts agreed to terms with Matt Hasselbeck on a one-year contract extension.

Hasselbeck has been Andrew Luck's backup for the last two seasons, providing plenty of veteran insight for the three-time Pro Bowler.

The 39-year old Hasselbeck (will turn 40 in September) showed that he can still play at a high level during some extended action this season.

In seven games the last two years, Hasselbeck has thrown for 431 yards (37-of-56 passing), two touchdowns and one interception for a 93.7 passer rating.

While Luck has been the main beneficiary of Hasselbeck's 200-plus games of NFL experience, other offensive players have spoken highly of what the backup has offered.

The 2015 campaign will mark the 18th NFL season for Hasselbeck.
