Colts Acquire Insurance 3/20/13
INDIANAPOLIS - This year's busiest team in free agency has added another piece to the puzzle.
Indianapolis signed Matt Hasselbeck a day after the 37-year-old quarterback was released by the Tennessee Titans. The Colts have him penciled in as the backup and mentor for Andrew Luck.
Hasselbeck is a three-time Pro Bowl selection who led Seattle to the Super Bowl in 2005.
- New York Jets coach Rex Ryan says the team is not actively pursuing a trade of star cornerback Darrelle Revis (duh-REHL'-REE'-vihs). But Ryan acknowledges any team will listen if another club calls about acquiring any player. Revis missed most of last season with a left knee injury, but when healthy is considered the best cornerback in the league.
- Center Brad Meester has signed a one-year deal to play a 14th season with Jacksonville. He goes into next season with a streak of 74 consecutive starts.

- With leading receiver Victor Cruz still unsigned, the New York Giants have added Louis Murphy. The speedy receiver caught 25 balls for Carolina last year and has 115 receptions for 1,707 yards and seven touchdowns over his five seasons in the league.
- The NFL has announced that the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins will meet in the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 4 to open the league's preseason schedule. The night game at Fawcett Stadium will follow the induction ceremonies the previous day.
- A Florida family is suing Cleveland Browns defensive lineman Desmond Bryant, accusing him of showing up drunk at their Miami home in the early morning hours of Feb. 24, banging on the front door and ripping off a door handle. Bryant was arrested on a misdemeanor charge and is scheduled to enter a plea in the case April 1.
- A federal magistrate has found that Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt is not guilty of driving under the influence after trying to pass through a security gate at Fort Campbell Army post on the Tennessee-Kentucky state line.
