NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have switched backup quarterbacks all in the span of a few hours, going from veteran Matt Hasselbeck to Ryan Fitzpatrick.

A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press that the Titans have agreed to a 2-year deal with Fitzpatrick, the former Buffalo Bills quarterback.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced by Tennessee officials, who met with Fitzpatrick at the NFL meetings in Phoenix.

ESPN.com first reported the deal.

The move comes hours after Hasselbeck was released Monday because of his $5.5 million contract and a $7.5 million salary cap hit. Fitzpatrick was released the day free agency opened, a day before the team was due to pay him a $3 million bonus.
