Free agent Matt Hasselbeck is headed to the Tennessee Titans and Donovan McNabb was poised to be traded to the Minnesota Vikings, as National Football League teams lined up their quarterbacks with the lockout over.
Hasselbeck, who played the last 10 seasons with the Seattle Seahawks and took them to the 2005 Super Bowl, has worked out a multi-year deal with the Titans, the NFL Network reported on Wednesday.
The 35-year-old Hasselbeck, a three-time Pro Bowler, was expected to start for Tennessee and help groom first-round draft pick Jake Locker, who was able to follow Hasselbeck's career closely while playing at the University of Washington.
Free agent Tarvaris Jackson, who played his first five NFL seasons with Minnesota, was expected to sign a deal to join the Seahawks on Friday, which is the first day NFL teams can sign players besides rookies.
Filling the Vikings void left by Jackson was expected to be McNabb, according to a report on the NFL's website.
McNabb, who joined the Washington Redskins last year after playing his first 11 NFL seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, will cost Minnesota a late-round draft pick but must agree to a restructuring of his contract for the trade to be finalized.
The 34-year-old, six-time Pro Bowler, who was benched for the final weeks of the season last year after failing to live up to expectations, was due to make $12.5 million with the Redskins, and the Vikings made it clear they would not take on that much salary, sources told the website.
With San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith expected to sign a one-year extension with the club, that left Kyle Orton, starting signal caller last season for the Denver Broncos, and Philadelphia Eagles back-up Kevin Kolb as quarterbacks still expected to be on the move to new teams.
The Broncos appear set to hand the starting job to last year's first-round pick Tim Tebow, while Michael Vick won the competition for the job last season over Kolb.
Speculation has Kolb headed to the Arizona Cardinals, while Orton could be a fit for the Miami Dolphins.
