Reports: Whitehurst Done Deal for Seattle

Both ESPN and ProFootballTalk report that the deal between the San Diego Chargers and the Seattle Seahawks for third-string quarterback Charlie Whitehurst is complete.

Both media outlets report that the Seahawks will fall 20 spots in the second round of this year’s N.F.L. Draft, as the Chargers and the Seahawks swapped their second-round selections as a part of the deal.  Seattle also agreed to give up a third-round pick in next year’s Draft.

The outlets went on to report that Seattle and Whitehurst came to terms on a two-year deal worth what is expected to be $5 million per season.

Whitehurst, a restricted free agent this year, has never thrown a pass in a regular-season game in the N.F.L.

    I’m very upset. This draft is supposed to be the deepest since 1983. So our 2nd round draft choice at number 40 is really the same as a 1st round draft choice any other year. I mean we could of drafted a top quality running back or wide receiver at that spot. Or If you really wanted a quarterback, we could have drafted Tim Tebow or Colt McCoy and allowed him to develop for a year under Matt Hasselback. Our next pick is not until the forth round. Were giving away the future for a 3rd string backup that is 28 years old. I mean really.
