Charlie Whitehurst Fantasy News
Vincent Brown "shines" in camp
Friday, July 26, 2013, 11:56am
Receiver Vincent Brown has a knack for pulling away while deep into a route. He showed it at San Diego State, as an NFL rookie, in training camp last year -- and in the camp opener on Thursday. Brown ran a fly pattern down the right sideline with cornerback Johnny Patrick stride for stride as Charlie Whitehurst aimed a pass about 15 yards ahead of them. Brown then ran away from Patrick, reached out and caught the ball before safety Jahleel Addae arrived.
Brown has been making noise all offseason and his ADP has risen into the 12th round. He'd make a nice handcuff for Danario Alexander owners.

According to beat writer Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego, Chargers WR Vincent Brown might be available for the second half of the regular season. Brown was carted off the field after catching an 18-yard touchdown pass from Charlie Whitehurst during San Diego’s preseason victory over the Cowboys on Saturday.

The team has signed QB Kyle Boller.

Backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst stood on the sideline, his left knee wrapped in ice.
Whitehurst would downplay his injury afterward, but there was enough concern that the Chargers began making calls around the league, sending feelers to potential replacements, sources said.
Billy Volek naturally jumps out as possible candidate. He spent the past five years as a San Diego backup and remains a free agent after his March release.
Charlie Whitehurst set to start Week 7
Friday, October 21, 2011, 1:01pm
Charlie Whitehurst appears to be Seattle's starting quarterback for Sunday's game in Cleveland. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll gave us that indication during his visit on 97.3 KIRO FM's Seattle Morning News.
"Charlie's ready to go, and as far as I'm concerned he's starting the football game, unless something turns with Tarvaris here in the next couple days," said Carroll.
Jackson suffered a high-grade strain of his right pectoral in Seattle's victory over the New York Giants two weeks ago. He has been making great improvement according to coach Carroll.
"Tarvaris has been throwing the football in controlled routes. He's closer than the doctors would have thought he could be this quickly," Carroll emphasized. "We've tried to be careful with him as he's coming back."
The Browns aren't a great matchup for Whitehurst, but they'll be without CB Joe Haden, which should help.

The Seahawks have a bye this week and will take on Cleveland in week 7.

"It had nothing to do with the quarterback spot," Carroll said. "I don't feel like that at all. We'll look at everything, but I don't feel like that at all."

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll named Tarvaris Jackson his starter even before a snap was taken in training camp, but Charlie Whitehurst has actually looked more familiar this preseason with new coordinator Darrell Bevell's West Coast offense -- despite Jackson's history with Bevell in Minnesota. "Charlie's functioning beautifully,'' Carroll said this week. "He's farther along that I thought he would be this early. He's very comfortable with what's going on and it just makes us again stronger at the QB spot.''

"...Charlie is having an excellent camp...," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said.
Not so excellent that Carroll is considering a change in the depth chart. Tarvaris Jackson remains the starter, his familiarity with Seattle's offense under new coordinator Darrell Bevell his trump card.
Whitehurst completed 14 of the 20 passes he attempted in two quarters vs. San Diego. And he got better as the game progressed, growing more comfortable throwing downfield. Of his five completions in the second quarter, none was for more than 7 yards. In the third quarter, he was 9-for-11 passing, with six of those passes gaining more than 8 yards.
Sidney Rice to sign with Seahawks

This is major news on the heels of the McNabb trade to Minnesota. The Seahawks get a very good young WR with a worrisome injury history, and his stock will take a hit as he changes offenses and QBs (to Tarvaris Jackson/Charlie Whitehurst...not good). This also hurts the value of Mike X Williams, who was shaping up to be a nice middle round sleeper this season.
Meanwhile, Percy Harvin will be the Vikings' WR1 barring something unforeseen. This means more targets, but not necessarily better targets. Rice's departure hurts Adrian Peterson a little, but McNabb's arrival surely offsets that.

Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is playing with a brace to protect his injured left wrist, and he has had fluid drained off his left hip three times since injuring it on Dec. 26. But other than that, he feels pretty good.
"I feel like I've been pretty healthy this year," he said.
Hasselbeck wanted to play in the regular-season finale against St. Louis, but Carroll opted to start Charlie Whitehurst played instead. That gave Hasselbeck an extra week to heal, and he responded with the best playoff performance of his career.
"More than anything, we've got so many new guys on our team, so many new teammates, that I think it's important to kind of go through the fire with your teammates," Hasselbeck said, "So you know who you can count on when times get tough. You know who you can depend on."

It's Tuesday, which is usually a players' day off for the Seahawks.
But due to the Saturday playoff game shortening this week by a day, they practiced.
What we can tell you is that Hasselbeck and Whitehurst split reps at quarterback, but that's it.
