Former Miami Dolphins quarterback Pat White wants to play football again. The Miami Marlins want White to play baseball. Again.
Via the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, White told 640 Sports on Thursday that he has an offer from the Marlins to report to minor-league spring training. White, once a fourth-round pick in the baseball draft, joined the Royals’ organization after leaving the NFL in 2010.
Given the trend toward mobile quarterbacks, White surely sees an opportunity to finish what he started in Miami. Even though the second-round pick in the 2009 draft really wasn’t there long enough to start anything.
