INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts have agreed to terms with quarterback Scott Tolzien to fill the backup QB role after the team moved on from Matt Hasselbeck.
The team said last month it would not renew Hasselbeck's contract. The 40-year-old played eight games last season after Andrew Luck suffered a series of injuries. Hasselbeck threw for 1,690 yards and nine touchdowns during those games.
Tolzien has played six seasons in the NFL – the past three with the Green Bay Packers. He played three games for the Packers in 2015, throwing for a total of four yards. He's played six games and thrown for 120 total yards in his NFL career.
Hasselbeck announced this week he would retire and join ESPN as an NFL analyst.
