Charlie Whitehurst stayed in log cabin at minicamp

"Clipboard Jesus" continues to be one of the league's more precious enigmas.

Titans backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst seemed very much at home in Tennessee this week, telling reporters that he spent his nights in a log cabin during the team's first offseason minicamp.

"I just thought for these three days ... you don't have a lot of free time, I needed a place to stay and it's cheaper than a Holiday Inn," Whitehurst told John Glennon of the Tennessean. "You do hear a few more noises out there. But there's a 12-gauge (shotgun) over the fireplace and shells next to it, so I slept pretty well."

After backing up Jake Locker by day, Whitehurst would burrow his way back into the forest come evening, calling himself "a cabin guy" after eight seasons on the West Coast with the Chargers and Seahawks.

The thickly bearded Georgia native confirmed that he "didn't even load" the gun, a parallel to his quiet on-field career, which hasn't seen Whitehurst fire a pass since 2011. Still, we like the way he rolls, opting for the wilderness over high-brow Holiday Inn after inking a two-year, $4 million contract in March.
