Titans QB appealing fine for horse collar tackle
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)
The 14-year veteran said Wednesday he understands the intent of the rules and obviously tries to play within the rules without trying to hurt anybody. He says Hayden probably didn't notice, and Hasselbeck hopes NFL officials agree with the Titans.
Hasselbeck says he has been the target of plenty of jokes over the fine but it's not funny to a quarterback who obviously doesn't practice tackling.
