Nothing but net nets Matt Hasselbeck No. 8, Chandler Harnish $8,000

Matt Hasselbeck switched to No. 8 when he was acquired by the Seahawks in a 2001 trade with the Packers. He made the number his in 10 record-setting seasons in Seattle.

Hasselbeck continued to wear No. 8 the past two seasons with the Titans, who released him last month. But when Hasselbeck signed with the Colts after his release, backup QB Chandler Harnish had it.

Heavy emphasis on “had.” Hasselbeck said he would give Harnish $8,000 – and recoup his uniform number – if “Mr. Irrelavent” from last year’s NFL Draft could make a half-court shot. Harnish did just that, as you can see in the video above.
