06:52 AM ET 04.07 | The music on a game of veteran quarterback musical chairs is winding down, and Minnesota might want to look West. With Donovan McNabb's trade from Philadelphia to Washington eliminating the quarterback as a possibility for the Vikings next season, Minnesota's lone remaining option -- if Brett Favre retires -- would seem to be Seattle's Matt Hasselbeck. The Seahawks under new coach Pete Carroll appear to be rebuilding. Hasselbeck turns 35 in September. Carroll last month traded for Charlie Whitehurst, 27, who had been San Diego's backup QB. It seems likely that Favre, 40, minus training camp, will be back with the Vikings, but with this guy, you still never know. If the Seahawks make Hasselbeck available for the right deal, a trade would be expected either immediately before or after the April 22-24 NFL draft.
