Apparently, the call came in.
Former Dolphins quarterback Pat White took another step in his comeback attempt, working out for the 49ers today at their complex, according to CSNBayArea.com.
White said earlier this week he was expecting a call from 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh after his recent workout at West Virginia’s pro day.
While there’s no word on how the workout went, the numbers indicate an opportunity. The 49ers only have two quarterbacks on the roster at the moment — starter Colin Kaepernick and Scott Tolzien.
White hasn’t played since the Dolphins released him in the 2010 preseason, though he’s been working with quarterback guru George Whitfield in recent months.
While it’s reasonable to suggest White was ahead of his time, now that smaller, run-around quarterbacks are getting opportunities, he was never consistent enough throwing the ball to make himself useful the first time through.
