Morning links: Hasselbeck and playbooks

Liz Mathews of ESPN 710 Seattle caught up with Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck at an event for retired Seattle players on Tuesday evening.

Hasselbeck tells Mathews he did not receive a playbook from Seattle’s coaches, but that he has got one anyway while working out with fellow players.

“I didn’t get one,” said Hasselbeck. “It definitely hurt my feelings, but it’s alright because all my teammates gave me theirs. So it worked out. It worked out fine.”

Hasselbeck also said some Seattle players might get together and have organized workout similar to what other teams are doing around the league. But that remains tough to do because most teammates are not working out in the Seattle area.
