Hasselbeck led the Seahawks to a stunning upset of the New Orleans Saints in the first round of the 2010 playoffs. He is expected to be replaced in the Emerald City by Minnesota Vikings castoff Tarvaris Jackson who reportedly has agreed to a deal with the Seahawks.

Hasselbeck started 14 games in 2010, barely cracking 3,000 yards and throwing just 12 touchdowns to go along with 17 interceptions. Excluding the 2008 season — in which he started only seven games due to injury — 2010 was Hasselbeck’s worst statistical season with Seattle since his first in 2001.
