NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Matt Hasselbeck says he understands why the Tennessee Titans tried to sign Peyton Manning. The veteran quarterback plans to move on and take care of what he controls.

That includes building off his first season in Tennessee.

Hasselbeck made his first public comments since Manning chose Denver on a conference call Thursday from the NFL Players Association's annual meeting.

Hasselbeck says any owner on any team can pursue a player in free agency and that he has a ton of respect for Manning as a quarterback.

Hasselbeck says he went through a similar change himself a year ago when Seattle moved on without him. The quarterback says he still would choose Tennessee and is excited he gets a chance to finish what the Titans have started.
