NFL free agency 2013: Should the Cardinals have brought in Matt Hasselbeck?

Dilip Vishwanat

Quarterback still appears to be an issue for the Cardinals, so is Matt Hasselbeck the answer?

The Tennessee Titans announced on Monday that they released veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck from their roster, making him a free agent. Many teams will undoubtedly be interested in bringing Hasselbeck in as a backup and tutor to younger quarterbacks, but are there any starting jobs still out there for him? How about with the Arizona Cardinals?

Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com doesn't think the Cards will have interest after already signing Drew Stanton and placing a 2nd round tender on Brian Hoyer.

But then there was this tweet from the Arizona Republic's Kent Somers:

Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

At age 37, Hasselbeck has undoubtedly seen his best days in the NFL go by, but remember the last time the Cardinals signed an over the hill quarterback? That turned out pretty well.

I'm not saying Hasselbeck is going to be the next Kurt Warner, but he might be better than anyone the Cardinals currently have on the roster.

However, at this point, it is moot, as he signed today with the Indianapolis Colts to be Andrew Luck's backup. But would he have been a good option to have here in the desert?
