For a former sheriff getting ready to ride off into the sunset himself, 38-year-old Matt Hasselbeck has a nice gig backing up one of the game’s young gunslingers in Andrew Luck. Hasselbeck has the smarts to pick up offenses quicker than younger backups and can step in and perform admirably if called upon.

Another thing that Hasselbeck brings to the table that not many teams can say of their backup is his playoff experience. During his time with the Seattle Seahawks, Hasselbeck compiled 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions with 2,745 yards in the postseason and even led his team to the Super Bowl in 2005.
