Updated: Titans agree to deal with Matt Hasselbeck

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WVLT) -- According to a person familiar with the agreement, the Tennessee Titans have reached a deal with quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced. ESPN.com first reported the agreement, which was reached Wednesday morning.

According to CBSsports.com, it's a three-year deal worth $21 million dollars.

The 35-year-old Hasselbeck has spent the past 10 years with Seattle, but the Seahawks reached a deal Tuesday with quarterback Tavaris Jackson.

The Titans were looking for a veteran quarterback to help mentor rookie Jake Locker, the No. 8 overall draft pick. Veteran Kerry Collins announced July 7 he was retiring, and Tennessee plans to trade or release Vince Young likely before training camp on Friday.
