Report: Colts Looked Into QB Hasselbeck?

Serious About Peyton’s Status

It’s now safe to say the Colts have been truly concerned about their franchise quarterback for awhile.

Chris Mortensen of ESPN reported the Indianapolis Colts inquired about Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, according to a source.

The Colts ended up signing Kerry Collins, luring him out of retirement. If Peyton Manning isn’t ready to go in the regular season opener, Colts vice chairman Bill Polian has stated Collins will be the starter.

The Colts made inquiries about the availability of Hasselbeck before he signed with Tennessee, knowing the medical uncertainty of Manning’s condition needed its due dilligence.

Colts sources told Mortensen that although Manning is making some progress since having neck surgery and has maintained optimism, the team’s hierarchy does not believe he will be ready when Indianapolis opens the season September 11 at Houston.

    I for one, would rather have an aging Kerry Collins at the helm than Matt Hasselbeck.
