Pat White impresses in final preseason game

Chick Hernandez of Comcast SportsNet is reporting that quarterback Pat White has made the Redskins’ 53-man roster. Hernandez cited a team source in his report.

It was thought by many that the Redskins brought in White, who was a second-round pick of the Dolphins in 2009, to help the team practice the option offense during the offseason program and in training camp. Few reporters and analysts believed that he was a serious candidate to make the final roster. White has been out of football since his rookie 2009 season after suffering from a concussion and trying his hand at baseball.

As of now, the Redskins have four quarterbacks on the roster in starter Robert Griffin III, backup Kirk Cousins, Rex Grossman, and White. It would be very unusual for a team to go into a season with that many QB’s.

White appeared in all four of the Redskins’ preseason games. He had some exciting runs including touchdown jaunts of seven and 14 yards. His passing was inconsistent as he completed 28 of 50 passes (56 percent) for 330 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions (59.6 passer rating).
