Former WVU Star Pat White Confident About NFL Future With Washington Redskins

Former West Virginia quarterback and star player Pat White was a colossal bust with the Miami Dolphins before being cut, but he may be experiencing a bit of a career revival with the Washington Redskins as his NFL journey surprisingly continues.

White recently landed with  the Redskins and has a tall task in front of him if he wishes to make the depth chart behind Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins and Rex Grossman. As he told Zac Boyer of Redskins Journal, White is more than willing to put in the work to make his second stint in the league a successful one:

“I know that there’s still a lot to be learned, a lot for me to accomplish, but I’m willing to put in the time and the work to make it happen,” White said. “I’m just very thankful and blessed to have this opportunity.”

White certainly has a lot of work to do in order to make the Redskins roster. Ideally he’s the perfect fit in the read-option offense the Redskins employ thanks to his ability to hurt teams with his legs, but his accuracy as a passer has left something to be desired throughout his football career.

In fact, it’s his accuracy that has come up as a negative so far with the Redskins in OTAs according to John Keim of The Washington Examiner.

White may not make the final roster in Washington because the depth chart is so loaded with talent already, but if he keeps up the positive attitude and work ethic while showing some flashes in the preseason he could find himself on a roster somewhere in the NFL as a backup and specialty player.
