There’s also a chance that Harbaugh sees White as a low-risk, high-reward guy he can develop into a viable NFL quarterback. Also, a formation with Kaepernick in the pistol and White directly behind him as the “halfback” would cause problems for opposing defenses. If White is truly ready to contribute with the same physical tools he had a few years ago, that could actually be pretty ridiculous.
