Pat White wants back in the NFL

Former West Virginia quarterback Pat White wants back in the NFL according to this piece by the Palm Beach Post.

White, who had a storied career for the Mountaineers but lasted little more than a season with the Miami Dolphins told the Post:

“Everyone wants to point fingers as to why it didn’t work out in the NFL. I felt it was because of me. I could’ve done a lot more film study, a lot more working on my game. Instead of being there 30 minutes after practice, be there an hour. It’s the little things.

“I understand now that I was disrespectful, very disrespectful, to the gifts that I was given. I wasn’t as focused as I should have been, and I took my gifts for granted. Now that I know that, it won’t happen again.”

Perhaps he’s looking to cash in on the hot trend of mobile quarterbacks?

White was the best rushing quarterback of all-time in college football until Michigan QB Denard Robinson came along and finished this season with 4,495 rushing yards, a controversial total that included a stint at running back.
