The three-time Pro Bowler announced he will retire after the 2014 season, giving him just two years' worth of games to earn the title.
Hasselbeck, 38, signed with the Colts after spending two years as an occasional starter for the Tennessee Titans. At Indy, he has served as backup for Andrew Luck.
“I’d like to do one more year then call it a career,” Hasselbeck said in a telephone interview. “I’m hoping for a good year this year and next. That’s why I’m excited to be here rather than some other place. I feel good about our chances and the team we have. And I believe in Andrew (Luck).”
Hasselbeck's two-year contract ends at his retirement, and he said he has no intention to sign an extension or move elsewhere when it expires.
