Quarterback Charlie Whitehurst has agreed to a two-year contract to return to the San Diego Chargers. Whitehurst was San Diego's third-round draft pick in 2006. He was the third-string quarterback behind Philip Rivers and Billy Volek for four seasons and never attempted a pass in the regular season. He was traded to Seattle and played in nine games in two seasons, throwing for 805 yards and three touchdowns, with four interceptions. On Jan. 2, 2011, Whitehurst started Week 17 and helped the Seahawks beat St. Louis 10-6 to win the NFC West. He threw for 192 yards and a touchdown. Volek remains San Diego's backup, but will be a free agent after the 2012 season. Whitehurst's contract extends through 2013.
