Seahawks Trade For Charlie Whitehurst, Sign Extension
It appears that the Seahawks are acquiring Charlie Whitehurst with the idea that he'll be their next starting quarterback. Seattle's agreed to send San Diego a third-round pick while swapping second-round picks, and are giving Whitehurst a two-year contract at $5 million per year.
As Gregg Rosenthal notes, "Give Carroll and G.M. John Schneider credit for targeting their guy and having the confidence to go get him. They just better be right."
