Report: Pat White on track to sign with Redskins

Getty Images

With the Giants thinking about signing a quarterback who’d help the Giants prepare to face Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, the Redskins could be interrupting that plan.

By signing the player.

White canceled his tryout with the Giants because he’ll be visiting the Redskins and “very likely” will sign with the team, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com.

Having White around would give the Redskins a player who can run the read-option during the offseason workouts and whatever portion of training camp Griffin will miss as he recovers from a torn ACL.  Beyond that, White would give the Redskins a backup who runs Griffin’s version of the offense, allowing him to split time with Kirk Cousins if/when Griffin can’t play.

And it also would force the Giants to find someone else who would pretend to be Griffin as the Giants get ready to play the Redskins twice per year.

Picked by the Dolphins in the second round of the 2009 draft, White was cut during the 2010 preseason.  He has been out of the NFL ever since.

  1. Logicalvoicesays: “… Didn’t you know? Pat White is better than Terry Bradshaw. He’s like Fran Tarkenton and Randall Cunningham rolled into one package. If we didn’t already have God as our starting quarterback, we’d certainly be putting this guy in, because he is better than Tom Brady and can outplay Aaron Rodgers blindfolded.”

    Do I have that about right?

  2. OMG! No, I really don’t care.

    Our 6 rings are more important than your achievements. LOLzy

  3. Cue illogicalvoice saying the Redskins now have the 3 best QB’s of all time on their team.

  4. for the life of me i cannot figure out why there have been 8 stories about this guy. He got knocked out of the NFL years ago.

  5. Great signing. Not 1, but 2 fragile QBs. Skins must be going to the super bowl now….

    butterstone84? you new here, bro? PFT is proud of WVU products.

  6. Now that this guy is with a credible coaching staff, he may be coached up to be at least serviceable. We may even be able to flip him down the road for a low round pick…wishful thinking.

  7. The redskins will go down after their one year wonder year anyway. RGIII isn’t going to take the field until week 3, and so they are essentially starting over with a rookie Cousins. The redskin fans are so jacked up with koolaid and hope there’s no way they will see it without seeing it.

  8. I know he’s not going to be the backup, but I have never been a fan of having a different hand throwing backup QB. It throws the entire offense off. Unless, they are picking him up to mimic Vick on the scout team.

  9. A second round pick, cut a year later and hasn’t had a nibble in the three years since.
    Boy. Sounds like a real find.

  10. I think logicalvoice should have his own Redskins show! There are a lot of non Skins fans that come to each posting about the Skins just to see what he is going to say. Peytonsneck18, flavordave, and the Pittsburgh guy (you know who you are) would for sure tune in. HTTR!!

  11. The Redskins get a camp guy that has a very, very long shot (almost nonexistent) of making the 53-man roster.

    Pat White gets to make some cash to play football not too far from his old college stompin’ grounds.

    I don’t see a problem.

  12. He’d better be careful. The Redskins destroyed the last option QB they had. Poor guy. A one year career. Very sad.

  13. benroethlisberger7 is getting just as bad a logicalvoice. Who cares about “your” six rings. Hey, the Chiefs won Super Bowl IV too! Maybe their fans should be talking smack now too. The NFL is about the here and now, not about four Super Bowl trophies that “your” team won most likely before you were even born.

  14. hahahahaha the giants just #shannahan’d the redskins! the giants would never sign a mobile qb. the giants are a traditional team and do not believe in gimmicks like running qb’s. running qb’s dont win superbowls because they always get hurt. so funny that they are wasting money on this guy but good for him for getting back into the NFL

  15. Pat White seems like a decent fellow. Its not his fault the dolphins were stupid to draft him I’m the 2nd ed.

    Hopefully he can stick around the league this go-around.

  16. They gonna need lots o quarterbacks in Washington cause they got a crazy coach and a worthless field!!!!

  17. Maybe they are all-in on the option game and will try to trade Kirk in the leadup to the draft.

  18. Maybe they are just trying to get enough quarterbacks to finish the season with. Think RGlll will ever complete an entire NFL season? Me either. Logocalvoid thinks 10 or so games from Bob3 IS a complete season because he is so fantastic. Each W = 1.25 wins if Bob3 is your QB.

  19. Who wants to bet skins go back to being 5-11 this year? I know Skins fans believe IRG3 is already better than any qb who ever played the game but the circus is always in full gear in landover and one way or another they seem to mess thing up.

    That has nothing to do with this site or subject, that is more of a defect if anything.

  21. Ben roethlisberger7… Dude no one cares about your 6 rings. No one. 4 of them were before my grandfather was born. It’s irrelevant just like the steelers of today. Your arch rival is the work champ. Choke on your tears as you watch black and white films about Franco Harris winning super bowls.

    A similar story for the sad lowly Landover no names. Nice off season. Cut then resign hall and now add a 3rd QB???

    Ravens= superiority

  22. Hmmmmmmmm….. Gotta wonder if the Redskins have received an offer they can’t refuse for Cousins. He’s done as much as Matt Flynn to earn a serious look from QB needy teams.

  23. A testament to how poorly the Dolphins drafted during the Parcels era; Mike Wallace was drafted later in the 2009 draft than Pat White.

    That pick just kills me, not as much as the Ted Ginn Jr. pick, but close.

  24. People are freaking out. He is just a body, it’s not like the team signed him for a huge contract. This article has nothing to do with Ravens or Steelers. Stop trolling and talk about the article. Someone mentioned something about DeAngelo Hall being cut and then resigned. OF COURSE, too expensive and they got him for cheap (what he is actually worth).

  25. ad28bestever says: I would rather listen to Hitler, at least he made sense.

    would you like the chance to clarify that comment?

  26. Maybe it’s just me, ut if RG3 is back by week 1, then this may be bing done with an eye towards moving Cousins in this QB-needy draft year. Pat White can run the same offense as RG3 (at some level anyway) whereas I see Cousins as more of a pocket guy.

  27. Running quarterbacks have never won it all. Never. But every few years another one or two come along. Who will be the first to do it?

  28. Kind of ironic, didn’t the Dolphins pick White with the 2nd round pick they got from the Redskins for Jason Taylor?

  29. Pat White doesn’t resemble RG111 in his QB skills at all. What a peculiar move. He was terrible with the dolphins, and after being out of the game, now thinks he’s ready again, really??? Let’s see how long he lasts this time. His Baseball experiment didn’t last either.

  30. I thought Pat White quit after Ike Taylor separated him from his head???

    Why would the Redskins waste money on a short erratic qb when they already have 2 good QB’s? Answer: Because they are the Redskins

  31. Skins might be good now — they were just a QB away from being dangerous. We’ll probably see Bobby Griffin working at Subway in a couple years

  32. The Chip Kelly Machine 2013 World domination Tour will chew him up and spit out bones.

  33. The ‘Skins would be much better off taking the money they’ll pay White and use it to buy a decent field. Of course they wont do it, because that would actually make sense.

  34. umm, get a clue folks. These “logicalvoices” and “Roethlisberger7s” and “Ravenators” are just PFT staff. They know human psycology and that for every 1 trolling braindead comment they make with those handles they’ll generate 30 reactions.

  35. Miami was on the right track with White they just didn’t know how to use him. He is a little small but he could have run the read option had Miami been smart enough to implement it.

  36. RussianBreadMaker says: Apr 2, 2013 4:11 PM

    I dont really understand this move. I’d be surprised to see him make any team after being out so long.
    ___________
    That’s exactly the point. 30:1 he will not make the roster, but it never hurts to bring more bodies to camp.

    Could he be a decent slot receiver? Maybe. Point is, who knows, and moreover, who cares?

    Best case scenario, he prevents the Giants from using White to practice defending against Griffin, and worst cases scenario, he’s cut in July and it’s like he was never even there.

    Either way, it isn’t like they gave him a four-year, 16 million dollar deal. White is just a camp body, and most likely this signing is the last we’ll ever hear of him.

    I think Steve Young has a pretty good chance at winning one someday.

  39. And now, this website has officially changed it’s name to:

    PWT.com

    Yes, Pat White Talk.com.

    Want to know what Pat White had for dinner last night?? Just log on and check out the latest Pat White coverage.

  40. This is a middle finger to the Mara family who screwed its two competitors in the division by stealing salary cap room for two years. Payback is a biatch and the Giants are now in decline. Whether or not White plays at all makes no difference. This was clearly a shot at depriving the Giants any chance to grasp this new style of offense.

    In other Giants news – there isn’t any. Hahahahah

  41. Even illogicalloser can’t get excited about signing a QB that’s smaller than a kicker

  42. My bad,Logical voice Pat White did attempt 5 passes. Although the great one was unable to complete any of them.

  43. Logicalvoicesays didn’t comment on this article because his mom took away his computer privileges for trolling.

  44. Logicalvoicesays: “… Didn’t you know? Pat White is better than Terry Bradshaw. He’s like Fran Tarkenton and Randall Cunningham rolled into one package.

    May I suggest that you visit your psychologist ASAP??

  45. Considering the owner of a divisional rival stole cap money from the skins and was aided by the commissioner, the skins have done very well this off season. The giants are in decline and that’s a good thing

    ill take that bet,

  47. LV must having a party right now. A dozen + mentions without even posting.

    Why do you people feed the trolls? Just ignore, don’t even thumb’s down his posts. YOU PEOPLE have turned him into the most famous poster on PFT. Don’t you realize that this string is a wet dream for a troll? You’re doing his work for him.

    Stop it. Ignore the troll and it will go looking for attention elsewhere.

  48. These message boards aren’t even worth reading anymore. PFT likes the flame wars and trolls, as it adds to their page views and ad clicks.

  49. The Giant’s staff is lubing up Mara so the pain is not so outrageously bad. Giants just got played.

    Redskins do it again. With a mill under the limit they keep bringing them in. Redskins are developing their picks as evidenced by the last two years. White is highly talented and will prosper under the right coaching.

    He can also be moved around and the mismatches that he can create will be fun to watch.

  50. Ravens fans arejust ex skins fans who jumped the band wagin in 2000. Bunch of white trash getto punks with no life who come on here to smear the skins wishing they could come back to a historic franchise because their one hit wonder is disbanned .piss off and that goes for peytons neck and rothlisberger too HTTR!!

  51. This is a bit of a head scratcher if it’s true. Is it really that important to block the Giants scout team QB?

    White would almost have to make the team if the Skins do this. If the Skins brought him in for OTA’s and preseason, and then cut him, you know the Giants or another NFC East team would bring him in just to pick his brain if nothing else.

    I thought they already brought Grossman back? Am I missing something? Maybe they did get an offer that they are seriously thinking about accepting for Cousins?

    Yeah because stealing Pat White is huge payback for the cap penalties. I’m sure Mara and the Giants are shaking with anger over this bold and outrageous move.

  53. Camp arm. Nothing else. Those who can’t see that don’t know much about football.

    @ravensdominate

    Crows sure weren’t superior over the Skins last year.

  54. @ destructicus

    John jerry, sean smith, chris clemons, kendall langford, vontae davis, donald thomas, koa misi, rashad jones, jared odrick, brain hartline, jake long

    All starters somewhere in the league this year from the “parcells draft” in miami for 3 years

  55. What’s really funny is that not only has he been out of the League for years, but also as of this morning, White was a plaintiff in a concussion lawsuit against the league, claiming permanent injury, and he had to withdraw the lawsuit in order to sign with the Skins.

    This is not a joke (the lawsuit; still an open question with regard to the signing).

  56. There is more fans that are not redskins that continue to follow skins.. your so intriged by what we do u just can’t resist…talk your talk but u will continue to follow the righteous washington redskins.. c u later g@# boys!

  57. Camp fodder. Ravens fans crack me up. You just lost everyone but Flacco and your talking trash? If RG didn’t get hurt against Seattle we would’ve whooped y’all again for the second time last year.

    *********************

    Yep.

    Quit living in the past…the distant past

    What have you done for me lately?

    I’m a Cowboys fan for 42 years, and it irks me whenever I hear other Cowboys fans throw that five ring crap out there…

    When people talk about the past, it’s cause that’s all they got…

  59. Might actually make sense. If White still has something to contribute on the field, he could become a very good backup to Griffin and not force an offensive system change as when Cousin’s takes the field.
    Cousin’s will be traded eventually which means the skins must develop another backup QB other than Grossman. This pickup could indicate a possible Cousins trade sooner than expected – possibly mid season.
    If White doesn’t develop into the back up qb of the future, at the very least he could generate trade interest having been the understudy of Griffin.

  60. Trade the Jets a sixth round pick for Tebow and have him run the read option. Secondly direct him to stomp some Jesus into that loud mouth turd Richard Sherman.

  61. How is it logicalvoice comments on EVERYTHING except actual foreskins post? Maybe logicalvoice is too busy to comment cause he’s cleaning his underwear after he heard the news and sharted! Way to go Florio!

  62. Florio is Pat Whites biggest (and only) cheerleader, why is this a story?

  63. I forgot to add peytonsneck18 is upset because rg3 refused to come to indy before he got drafted and apparently still is..who would want to go to indy now that peyton is gone…luck is good but no rg3 hints the roy ..

  64. Foreskins or Deadskins, you can still suck it. Skins a one year wonder? That’s wishful thinking. RG3 having no career? Yeah right. Go ahead and inscribe that on his Rookie of the Year trophies. No rook ever won as many player of the week awards, finished more games with QB rating over 100, rushed for as many yards or had a better TD/Int ratio or yards per catch average. You guys are fools to think a guy like that won’t continue to have a great career. He’s already done more than Romo or Vick. Hail and kiss the rings b.tches!
