  • Seahawks send 3rd round pick for CHARLIE WHITEHURST

    The Seattle Seahawks and San Diego Chargers have completed a trade that sends third-string Chargers quarterback Charlie Whitehurst to Seattle for draft picks.The Seahawks swapped the 40th pick in the second round with San Diego's 60th pick and also will send the Chargers a third-round pick in the 2011 draft.
    0 NFL Regular season snaps...Wow... Nothing much to say here.awful move even to obtain a backup. Huge gain by the chargers. They better see A LOT in this guy. He'll be 28 this season. The send a 3rd and swap a 2nd w/ the Chargers.

    Normally this trade wouldn't be thread worthy but it's just so bad value wise I had to post it

      Whitehurst is 28 years old, year older than Aaron Rodgers

        I agree, I wouldn't have given up a third for a backup.

        Maybe a fourth, because he'll probably start sometime during the season for Seattle, especially if the offensive line doesn't hold up and Hasselbeck's back goes awry again.

        Also, I think this all but solidifies an OT being picked at #6

          Wow. That's just a bizarre move. I had heard that they might offer a fourth for him but even that seemed a little excessive. I don't think they'll take Clausen at this point, but I could be wrong. Still, if they feel like Whitehurst is good enough for all that, they probably see him as a starting quarterback.

            The Chargers got more for Whitehurst than they did for Cromartie.

              Anyone remember what the Texans gave up for Schaub? How does this compare?

                Some were pretty sure schaub was going to be decent, whitehurst on the otherhand..... well you know what. it's charlie whitehurst. that explains it.

                they flopped firsts and houston sent 2 2nd's btw. in any event. wow.

                    Ok yeah, that is a lot more. But at least with Schaub it looks like they made the right move and he had playing experience. This move seems a bit reckless.

                      I liked Charlie Whitehurst the prospect. Quite a bit actually. If you don't remember, check out some YouTube highlight clips from Clemson (I know thats not that accurate, but its the only way to really check him out).. you can tell hes talented. I thought he was a legit prospect with starter potential.

                      But that was pre him being behind Billy Volek on a depth chart for a bunch of years..How could he not beat him out? Its not like hes really young and needed to develop... hes 28..
                      So while I loved him coming out in the draft, no one has ever seen him in a regular season NFL game, and the Chargers didnt even feel comfortable enough to make him the backup. So I dont understand why his price was this high...

                        Such a ******* terrible move by the Seahawks. They could have got a potential starter at #40 but instead swap down twenty spots AND on top of that they send a 2011 3rd rounder?

                        No wonder Pete Carroll left for college when he could years ago. This dude will be out of the league in three years, if that.

                          Many fans always assume a QB will be a bust before he ever gets a chance to play. They seem to have an idea in their head that teams should only acquire sure fire star QBs. Well, that's not realistic. Teams have to gamble in order to find quality QBs. Seattle gave up a lot because that's what it takes to get a talented young QB. It's not like Seattle has a lot of options. One way or another they have to take a risk on a QB.

                            I saw him on You Tube once looked good.

                              It seems like a REALLY stupid move right now, but I'm going to reserve judgement to see if Whitehurst can play. Personally, I don't think he can, but I've been wrong many times before. If they think he can start for them a 3rd isn't a high price I suppose.

                              He was a 3rd round pick three years ago. Maybe they figure that they're getting a 3rd round pick that will be a solid backup without having to develop him at all.
