The San Diego Chargers have traded third-string quarterback Charlie Whitehurst to the Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks were interested in Charlie Whitehurst as soon as the Chargers tendered him at only a third round value. But without a pick in the third round, Seattle was going to need to be creative to make this trade happen.
Seattle and San Diego exchanged draft positions in the second round, moving the Chargers up to the 40th pick overall with Seattle moving down to the 60th slot.
Additionally, the Chargers will also receive a third round pick in 2011 from Seattle.
When you add this all up, it appears the Chargers are walking away with a kings ransom, while Seattle hopes Whitehurst can develop into their starter of the future.
