The Indianapolis Colts agreed to a two-year deal with Matt Hasselbeck, who was released by the division rival Tennessee Titans on Monday.
The contract is worth $8 million over two years according to the Indianapolis Star.
Hasselbeck gives the Colts needed experience behind Andrew Luck, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 draft who led the team to the playoffs as a rookie. Hasselbeck, 36, is fourth among active quarterbacks and fifth in touchdowns and wins.
Hasselbeck was owed $5.5 million in 2013 and chose not to listen to the Titans on negotiations to reduce his salary.
The Titans responded by releasing Hasselbeck and signing former Bills starter Ryan Fitzpatrick to a two-year contract.
Drew Stanton was the Colts' backup quarterback in 2012. He signed a three-year deal in free agency with the Arizona Cardinals, rejoining Bruce Arians. Arians was offensive coordinator in Indianapolis last season.
