Charlie Whitehurst Loses Jersey Number To Punter In Arm Wrestling Contest


Oh, Charlie Whitehurst.

The former star Clemson quarterback-turned-career NFL backup is beginning a stint with his third pro team — the Tennessee Titans — this season, and it’s already off to an embarrassing start.

Whitehurst revealed Tuesday via Instagram that his Titans jersey will not bear the No. 6 he’s worn since his college days after he literally could not wrestle it away from punter Brett Kern.

Looks like you’ll have to update that Instagram handle, Charlie.

Whitehurst has appeared in just 13 games in his eight NFL seasons, completing 84 of 155 passes while throwing for three touchdowns and four interceptions.

His one memorable performance came in the infamous NFC West Toilet Bowl, when he started the 2010 regular-season finale in place of Matt Hasselbeck and led the 6-9 Seattle Seahawks to a win over the 7-8 St. Louis Rams, clinching the division title and making Seattle the first sub-.500 team to earn a playoff bid.
