NFL Free Agency: 49ers Work Out QB Pat White

The 49ers worked out free agent quarterback Pat White today, according to CSN. 

White has not played in the NFL since 2009 with the Dolphins, when he attempted five passes and did not complete any of them. He also rushed 21 times for 81 yards.

White was drafted in the second round by Miami in 2009 after a successful college career. However, he found himself out of the NFL after just one season, and spent short stints in minor league baseball and the UFL.

The 49ers are on the lookout for a backup quarterback after trading away Alex Smith, but it is not likely that they make such a radical decision to turn to White.

    I agree that he’d be a stretch, but Harbaugh’s been a quarterback whisperer his whole coaching career, and I decided to look up and check if Pat White was a pitcher (like Kaepernick). While I found that he was a great outfield hitter in high school the site also summarized his college stats real well: White “ran for 47 touchdowns, passed for 56 and threw for 6,049 yards. He was the second quarterback in NCAA Division 1-A to throw for over 6,000 yards and run for over 4,000. He also became the first quarterback in college football history to win four bowl games – he was MVP of three of them.” - So will White get signed by the 49ers, probably not. The NFL is on a whole different level than college, but if White ends up on the team, he might have a familiar type of play if he were to step in for Kaepernick (who passed for 10,000 yards and ran for over 4000 yards in College)

      So basically, any former minor league baseball player will be signed by the 49ers? Just kidding, but he’s got an impressive background and who knows, he might be version No. 2 of Kaepernick
