BEREA, Ohio--Hue Jackson said the Browns would likely look to bring in a veteran quarterback with the current injury situation of Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown.
“I think that is where my point was coming from," Jackson said earlier Monday. "We will do everything we can to see if we can help the position first and foremost. Obviously, Cody (Kessler) has to be the guy, but we are also going to keep searching around and making sure that we cross every T and dot every I and see if there is somebody else out there that can help our football team.”
That player appears to be quarterback Charlie Whitehurst according to his agency, Sports Trust Advisors, who tweeted that Whitehurst is heading to the Browns.
Whitehurst, 34, has played on four other teams. He was a third-round pick of the Chargers in 2006 and has started nine games in his career, playing with the Chargers, Seahawks, Titans and Colts. Whitehorse played in four games for the Colts in 2015 and started four games for Tennessee in 2014.
In his career, Whitehurst has 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions, completing 55 percent of his passes.
