It didn't take long for Matt Hasselbeck to find work.

The veteran quarterback -- who was released Monday by the Tennessee Titans -- has signed  a two-year, $8-million deal to be Andrew Luck's backup, according to the Indianapolis Star.

Colts owner Jim Irsay announced the signing Tuesday morning, via his Twitter account.

Several teams were reportedly interested in Hasselbeck's services, but there were rumblings that he would join the Colts within hours of his release.
