Tennessee Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck said he is willing to renegotiate his contract this summer to stay in Tennessee. "I would definitely be up for that, for sure," Hasselbeck said Wednesday about the possibility of renegotiating his deal. "I'm not in those conversations, but I'm aware of them. That topic came up maybe in September, October, November (of 2012), somewhere in there. I would be excited about the opportunity because it would be basically having the opportunity to stay. But again, there's so much that goes into those things. But from my perspective, yeah, absolutely."
Huddle Up: Hasselbeck's willingness to renegotiate comes on the heels of word out of Tennessee that he might be a cap casualty. There are plenty of QB-needy teams out there, so if Hasselbeck doesn't return as a backup in Tennessee he should latch on elsewhere--perhaps even competing for a starting gig.

Tennessee Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck will count $5.5 million against the salary cap, so he might be released as the Titans believe they have a capable option in QB Jake Locker and many needs at other positions. If he is released, Hasselbeck might get a starting opportunity elsewhere.
Huddle Up: There's no question Hasselbeck could land a starting gig with one of several QB-needy teams; he could also collect a paycheck as a veteran backup/mentor to a young quarterback. The Titans have other needs to address and could use the cap space to do so, with Locker as the unchallenged (and un-backed up) starter.
