On this date: Charlie Whitehurst and Matt Flynn acquired

Posted Mar 18, 2014

A look at a couple of memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on March 18

2010: Charlie Whitehurst, a backup quarterback from the Chargers, is acquired in a trade for two draft choices. Whitehurst would start four games in two seasons, but win only one – the 2010 regular-season finale against the Rams which gave the Seahawks the NFC West title. Whitehurst returned to the Chargers in 2012 and now is with the Titans.

2012: Matt Flynn, who had been the backup quarterback to Aaron Rodgers with the Packers the previous four seasons, agrees to terms with the Seahawks in free agency. Flynn threw nine passes in his first season with the team because rookie Russell Wilson won the starting job during the preseason. Flynn was traded to the Raiders last April and also was with the Bills and Packers last season. He is currently an unrestricted free agent.
