The Colts reportedly tried to lure Jason Campbell out of retirement after announcing that Andrew Luck will miss between 2-6 weeks with a kidney laceration and an abdominal injury. However, Campbell elected to remain retired.
Indianapolis plans to move forward with Matt Hasselbeck as their starter, but it couldn’t hurt to bolster their depth at quarterback for the time being.
Whitehurst, 33, is in the final year of his two-year, $4 million contract that included $2 million guaranteed. He stands to make a base salary of $2 million for the 2015 season, but he’ll have to pass through waivers before he can sign on with a team of his choosing.
This season, Whitehurst has appeared in one game, but didn’t attempt a single pass.
