More than ever, dual threat quarterbacks are starting — and winning — at the NFL level as Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick all led their teams to the playoffs this year. A former standout at West Virginia who possessed a similar skillset is hoping to join them.
“I’m still young. My legs are still with me,” Pat White told the Palm Beach Post on Monday from the Senior Bowl. “I’m like a 2009 model with about 4,500 miles on it. It still runs just as smooth.
“I just want to come out here, shake hands, show my face and let coaches know that I’m interested.”
We last wrote about White in December, as he was trying to become an actor. His agent, Susan Ferris, said that White was gearing up for “pilot season,” which runs from mid-January to early May and is when aspiring actors try to land roles on shows that hopefully get picked up in the fall.
If White’s appearance on the sidelines of the Senior Bowl — as well as his saying that he is working out with a personal trainer near his Fort Lauderdale, FL home — is any indication, those acting plans are on hold as the former Mountaineers star QB tries to give football another shot alongside JaMarcus Russell.
