Hasselbeck spent 2 seasons with the Titans, the first season as the starter and the second as Jake Locker’s backup.
“I want to thank Matt for his contributions to our team over the last two years,” said Titans General Manager Ruston Webster. “He was an important part of the transition process - he was a pro at every turn and he provided an example to the rest of the team. I know that we are a better team for his being here and we wish him the best.”
In 2011, Hasselbeck passed for 3,571 yards, the fourth-highest passing total in Titans history.
Last season, Hasselbeck was called into action for 5 consecutive starts after Locker injured his shoulder. During that time he passed for 1,367 yards and 7 touchdowns in a total of 8 games played in 2012.
Overall, Hasselbeck has 14 years of NFL experience and has thrown for 34,517 yards and 201 touchdowns during his career.

Houston brother will be his own attorney in court
June 18, 2013 13:02 GMT
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Roane County man will face federal gun violation charges next month without an attorney.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/17VlXpM ) reported Rocky Joe Houston will represent himself on a charge of possession of a gun by a felon.
The charge came after Houston earlier represented himself in state court on charges stemming from a police chase. He was convicted of evading arrest and reckless endangerment.
Houston and his brother, Leon Houston, were tried, but not convicted, in the 2006 shooting deaths of a Roane County deputy and his ride-along companion.
In federal court, Rocky Joe Houston is claiming the officer who charged him with the felony had no legal authority.
