Charlie Whitehurst was once the promising-yet-unknown back-up quarterback for the San Diego Chargers — a description that could be applied to the Packers’ Matt Flynn today. The Seattle Seahawks tried to strike gold by making a trade for Whitehurst, but unfortunately it didn’t work out and the Seahawks are still looking for answers at quarterback.
Now Whitehurst has made his way back home, replacing the 35-year-old Billy Volek as the primary back-up for Philip Rivers. In two seasons in Seattle, Whitehurst 84 for 155 for a completion percentage of 54.2. He threw 3 touchdowns and 4 interceptions and also had 3 fumbles.
