He'd have to clear waivers first and become a FA, to then be signed to the practice squad. NY could sign him to their practice squad once he's a FA, and never have to add him to the 53.

True.

I doubt this was a motive. In my view this would be a waste of a roster spot. BTW - is there evidence the Giants had interest?

He is a tremendous athlete who could conceivably help us in many ways.

Let think outside the box... but lets look in the box to see why we are thinking the way we are.

Everybody hasn't seen his skill set, they have only read about his one year in the pros. They forget he was the 44th pick in the NFL draft 4 years ago (under the new CBA... the Dolphins would be deciding if they wanted to pick up his option or not instead he's a on the Redskins roster after being drafted with a Redskins :shock: draft pick). With Pat White under contract everyone that hated the Jason Taylor trade can let it go :P

The fact is Pat White gives Klye more options but with a healthy RGIII Ain't a Damn Thang Changed :twisted:

^^ interesting perspective about the Taylor 'mess' ... I agree, it's a good time to close that up ...

I will add that this seems to me to be another example of how well this franchise is being managed - there is NO WAY that we would have 'found' a potential 'fit' like this a few years ago

these guys don't add players for any reason than what they may offer here and they will ONLY keep him as long as he offers something to our franchise


I like what the video showed and I hope this kid gets another chance - great story

Wishful thinking, probably, but it's fun to think about the possibilities having two QBs can bring to an offense and as CT pointed out, Kyle was not afraid to get creative last year. Although sometimes too creative (RGIII catching that pass in the Steelers game).

At the very least it's fun to think this move may make some D-Coordinators sweat a little bit more this year.



Definitely! It's exciting to think about the possibilities. And I appreciate the link, I don't feel crazy any more.

EXACTLY !!

This kid is just another example of these guys doing their due diligence and finding a player that might help and at a position where we might need another player

we did not sign him to make sure he couldn't help another franchise - he's here and he'll be given an opportunity - EVERY player here is competing for a chance - that's why we are where we are

we're hampered by this cap BS but these guys are doing everything they can to try and have a unit that can defend the NFC East title



the video of Pat White shows a lot - this kid could make the roster .... but he'll have to earn it

Ummm... well... yeah. This player is not just a camp arm. They are not bringing him here merely to run the scout team. They see something here, and it might not be as "just another quarterback".

That is sick crazy. Enough confusion to make it nearly indefensible. I likes.

This is a good move all the way. Two QB offense? Interesting to say the least. Would love to see it in the NFL.

To me this signing is very similar to signing Tavaris Jackson. They are similar talents. I'm thinking White is younger, came cheaper, and there are more questions about him ... but had we signed Jackson we'd be making many similar comments, conjectures as to how we might use him, etc.

Well I have to disagree. Just because they are both running QBs does not mean they are the same caliber of player.

I actually think Pat White has more potential then Jackson has. Tavaris has already proven he is not a starting caliber QB. I think with the right coaching Pat could be successful maybe even become a starter some day on another team.
