Hasselbeck announced his retirement Wednesday, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hasselbeck appeared in eight games for the Colts last season and held his own in place of the injured Andrew Luck. However, the team informed him he would not be back in 2016, and Hasselbeck decided to hang up the cleats rather than look for a backup job elsewhere. Hasselbeck will finish his career with 36,638 passing yards and 212 passing touchdowns in 209 games.

Hasselbeck acknowledged Monday that his stint with the Colts is slated to come to an end.

EDGE Analysis

This confirms previous reports that Hasselbeck, who has been the Colts' backup QB for the last three years, will not be re-signed by the team and will thus become an unrestricted free agent later this month. Despite enduring a series of injuries while filling in for Andrew Luck in 2015, the 40-year-old Hasselbeck has expressed a desire to continue his NFL career this coming season.

Hasselbeck is not believed to be in the Colts' plans for 2016, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, the Colts plan to go with Josh Freeman as Andrew Luck's backup next season, with the 40-year-old Hasselbeck thus on track to become a free agent next month. It's unclear at this stage, however, whether or not the veteran signal-caller will land another NFL job this offseason, on the heels of a 2015 campaign in which Hasselbeck toughed it out through a series of injuries while filling in for Luck.

Hasselbeck said he is strongly leaning toward playing another season, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hasselbeck's contract is set to expire, but the Colts would probably be happy to have him back. He filled in admirably for Andrew Luck in 2015, though the 40-year-old's own injury issues eventually forced the Colts to use Charlie Whitehurst, Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley at quarterback.

Hasselbeck (shoulder/ribs/back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

The same applies to Andrew Luck, with the Colts still not inclined to identify their Week 17 starter at QB. With that in mind, for the third straight day, Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley split the team's quarterback reps at Friday's practice.

Coach Chuck Pagano relayed Monday that Hasselbeck (right shoulder) is looking doubtful for Sunday's season-finale against the Titans, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Meanwhile, Charlie Whitehurst is now on IR, while Andrew Luck is still banged up as the contest approaches. While Luck has not yet been ruled out for Week 17 by the Colts, Pagano acknowledged Monday that of the team's QBs, Stephen Morris is "the only healthy one in the building right now."
