Pat White is back in the NFL, and not just as some training camp arm while Robert Griffin III recovers from knee surgery. White has made the Redskins' 53-man roster -- along with RG3, Kirk Cousins and Rex Grossman.
Why the Redskins are keeping four quarterbacks isn't clear, especially since RG3 announced that he'll be the Week 1 starter.
White was originally the Dolphins' 2009 second-round pick in 2009, back when the Wildcat was in vogue. But he never developed as much of a quarterback or runner, and a serious concussion suffered in a Week 17 game against the Steelers proved to be his last in the NFL -- until now.
The Dolphins released White prior to the 2010 season. He then signed with the UFL's Virginia Destroyers -- only to be let go several months later. Out of football for two years, White got a second chance with the Redskins this offseason and has done the most with that opportunity.
To put it all in perspective, consider this:
Pat White is going to outlast Tebow and Clausen in the NFL.— gregg rosenthal (@greggrosenthal) August 31, 2013
