Seahawks to Meet With Whitehurst
Posted Mar 10, 2010

The Seattle Seahawks will meet with San Diego Chargers restricted free agent quarterback Charlie Whitehurst.

According to Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times, the Seattle Seahawks will meet with San Diego Chargers restricted free agent quarterback Charlie Whitehurst.

Whitehurst, a third-round pick by the Chargers in 2006, was tendered at the "Original Round" level, meaning the Seahawks would be required to compensate the Chargers with a third-round draft choice in the 2010 NFL Draft should they sign Whitehurst to an offer sheet that San Diego declines to match.

The Seahawks presently do not have a third-round pick this year's draft, so after reaching a contract agreement with Whitehurst, the Seahawks would then have to negotiate compensation with the Chargers.

Whitehurst would earn $1.176 million dollars under the one-year restricted free agent tender.

Usually designated the Chargers' emergency third quarterback on gameday during his four seasons in the league, Whitehurst has yet to attempt a regular season pass. The 6-4, 230-pound former Clemson standout does have 13 yards rushing, including a 14-yard touchdown run against the Tennessee Titans in Week 2 of his rookie season.

During pre-season action with the Chargers, Whitehurst is 104-of-197 (52.8%) for 1,031 yards, with 5 touchdowns and 7 interceptions for a passer rating of 61.5.

Whitehurst is also scheduled to meet with the Arizona Cardinals.
