White earns Roster spot


The Washington Redskins made their final cuts to trim the roster down to 53- men on Saturday.  The big news out of Redskins Park is that the surprising run of quarterback Patrick White will continue.  White made the Washington Redskins roster after not taking a snap since 2009.  Pat was originally a second round selection made by the Miami Dolphins, but after experimenting with him in the wild cat scheme, Professional football did not seem to be the right fit.

Then, White proceeded to take on minor league baseball, where the quarterback’s arm was not enough for him to stick around.  Pat, however, has made the most of his second chance in the league having an extremely successful pre-season.

White has proved he’s more than capable of running head coach Mike Shanahan’s read option scheme.  With the injury to fellow back up Kirk Cousins, Pat’s chances of making the team seemed to increase, and after Saturday, he is now a member of the Redskins organization.

The ‘Skins also decided to keep Rex Grossman on the roster which puts their quarterback count at four, an unusual number for NFL teams.  In an offseason that has seen most teams keep just two quarterbacks, Washington decided Pat White was worthy of a spot on the roster.
