Tennessee Titans quarterback Charlie Whitehurst cleared the air about a false Instagram post he made last week about losing the No. 6 to punter Brett Kern over an arm wrestling contest. Whitehurst alleges the post was simply for kicks and giggles and didn't believe people would actually take him seriously."That was kind of my first real experience with that whole...Twitter stuff," said Whitehurst, whose account says he joined Twitter in May of 2010. "Some of the guys later were telling me, `Hey, they're killing you on there.' I wasn't really paying much attention to it. But that's the first time I realized how modern media can happen."Whitehurst added that he believes he could beat Kern in an arm wrestling contest if given the challenge. But admitted no such contest happened. With that being said, Whitehurst did ask Kern about the number when he first arrived in Tennessee."I mentioned it when I got here," Whitehurst said. "I said, `How tied are you to that number?' He said, `How much do you want it?' That's about all it was."It's his number and I was glad to move on to 12. There's been some pretty good quarterbacks who wore number 12, a lot of them."Whitehurst will sport No. 6 with the Titans. This is the same number he wore with the Chargers.Via The Tennessean
