08:00 AM ET 03.19 | Pete Carroll is willing to take an early gamble on his depth chart. So what does that say about Carroll? Well, for one, that he isn't going to play it safe. This is his first signature move, and it's a risky one. Whitehurst, a third-round pick from Clemson in 2006, has career totals of five touchdowns and seven interceptions -- all in exhibition games -- and was unable to beat out Billy Volek as backup to Philip Rivers. The way it sounds now, Hasselbeck is the starter. But with the money the Seahawks are paying Whitehurst, that depth chart is at best wet cement.
