Clipboard Jesus is back in the league after a short break

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Clipboard Jesus’ many apostles can rejoice as their leader has once again found his way onto an NFL roster. The Cleveland Browns signed the veteran signal caller following injuries to their starter Robert Griffin III (as a skins fan this is no surprise to me) and primary backup Josh McCown, who both went down with shoulder injuries in weeks one and two respectively.

Whitehurst, who was recently named the starting quarterback of the all-Clemson NFL team, will back up rookie Cody Kessler, who played at USC in college.

In his 10-year career, Whitehurst has played in a total of 24 games, compiling 2,281 yards and 10 touchdowns to seven interceptions. He has also thrown for a 55.1 completion percentage during his time in the NFL.

To celebrate his return to the NFL enjoy this highlight tape from his time at Clemson.
