Pat White cancels Giants visit

USA TODAY Sports

Free agent quarterback Pat White won't be visiting with the Giants after all.

Free agent quarterback Pat White canceled his Tuesday visit with the New York Giants, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. White will instead visit with the Washington Redskins Wednesday, where he's likely to sign, according to CBS Sports's Jason La Canfora.

White is attempting to re-start his NFL career after three years away from the game. The Miami Dolphins selected him in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft, and he played in 13 games for Miami that season, primarily as a wildcat quarterback. White didn't complete a pass on five attempts, and he rushed 21 times for 81 yards. The Dolphins cut White before the 2010 season, and he left football for an attempted baseball career. However, that didn't pan out, and he's hoping to break back in to the NFL.

White had a stellar college career at West Virginia, passing for 6,051 yards and rushing for 4,480 in four years with the Mountaineers. He totaled 103 touchdowns in his time as a college quarterback.

White's change of plans makes sense. If he signed with the Giants, the 27-year-old wouldn't fit in to New York's traditional attack. Eli Manning is about as far from a mobile signal-caller as it gets, and the offense would have to make serious adjustments if White was ever forced into action. Washington, on the other hand, runs a read-option offense with Robert Griffin III. White and the Redskins would likely be much more comfortable with the pairing.
