The Tennessee Titans informed veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck they are releasing him, reports the Tennesseean.
Hasselbeck, 37, spent the last two seasons with the Titans after playing 10 seasons with the Seattle Seahawks. He led the Seahawks to Super Bowl XL, where they lost 21-10 to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Hasselbeck was scheduled to make $5.5 million next season.

“I want to thank Matt for his contributions to our team over the last two years,” Titans general manager Ruston Webster said in the statement. “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.”
