Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday
the Seahawks would like to bring quarterback Matt Hasselbeck back
for the 2011 season.
      Asked directly about Hasselbeck's future with the franchise
during his weekly press conference, Carroll said the team would
like to do "everything we can" to have Hasselbeck return for an
11th season with the franchise.
      "We don't know the timelines or how that's going to work out,
and all that kind of stuff, but that's a big issue for us that
we're looking forward to. He's had a terrific run for us and we
want to see what we can do to keep that going," Carroll said.
      Seattle plays at Chicago on Sunday in the NFC divisional
playoff.
      Hasselbeck's current contract with Seattle was signed before the
start of the 2005 season and followed by Hasselbeck leading Seattle
to its only Super Bowl appearance. That contract expires at the end
of this season.
      Hasselbeck's first season with Carroll has been a series of ups
and downs, getting booed off the field less than a month ago,
