Pat White wants to make NFL return

Associated Press  |  Last updated February 27, 2013
Former Miami Dolphins and West Virginia quarterback Pat White wants to return to the NFL. White's father, Bo, said Wednesday his son is going to work out as part of West Virginia's pro day in Morgantown on March 14. Bo White says Pat has been in San Diego the past few weeks working with personal quarterbacks coach George Whitfield, whose clients have included NFL quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton and Andrew Luck. Whitfield, who didn't immediately return a telephone message, said on Twitter that he and the 27-year-old White ''have been focused on his upcoming `relaunch.'' The Dolphins selected White in the second round of the NFL draft in 2009. He played in 13 games in the Dolphins' ''wildcat'' package but failed to complete a pass and was released before the start of the 2010 season. The mobile White went 34-8 as a starter at West Virginia, becoming the first quarterback to start four bowl victories in college football history. He held the NCAA record for rushing yards by a quarterback until it was broken by Michigan's Denard Robinson in 2012 with 4,495. Although White threw for 6,049 yards and 56 touchdowns in college, his quickness - he scored 47 rushing TDs at West Virginia - could be an asset as NFL teams mull whether to join San Francisco, Seattle and Carolina in incorporating the read-option running game into their offenses. In January, White watched the Senior Bowl near his hometown of Daphne, Ala., telling reporters, ''I know that I can still do it. I just want to come out here, shake hands, show my face and let coaches know that I'm interested.''
