Extra Points: Hasselbeck, Powell, Vernon

Former Colts quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is set to join the cast of ESPN’s Sunday Countdown, sources tell Jason McIntyre of the Big Lead, who adds that a retirement announcement from Hasselbeck could come as soon as tomorrow. Indianpolis informed Hasselbeck that it would not re-sign him late last month:

More from around the league before the craziness starts tomorrow:

  • The Patriots are interested in free agent running back Bilal Powell, tweets Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. The Jets, Powell’s club for the duration of his career, already lost one RB earlier tonight when Chris Ivory agreed to sign with the Jaguars.
  • Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports is the latest to confirm rumors that the Dolphins may rescind Olivier Vernon‘s franchise tag, noting that if the club works out an extension with Cameron Wake, Vernon could become an unrestricted free agent.
  • Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo underwent successful collarbone surgery and is expected to recover within six-to-eight weeks, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports (Twitter link).

    If Vernon hits the market without the tag, will he get more than 12 mill per or less? 49ers an option.

  2. Huh? They’ll let Vernon go – 25 in his prime if they can re-sign Wake – 34 w/an Achillies injury? Head-scratching all over the place. They could end up with neither. Safest move is the Franchise Vernon, attempt to re-sign Wake, and then trade Vernon, if it’s a cap issue.
