.....Royals. He's going to play baseball. I guess those reports were accurate.
Quote:
Cut too late by the Dolphins to land an opportunity with another team and ineligible for duty on the practice squad, former Dolphins quarterback Pat White is taking a different approach.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, White will be signing with the Kansas City Royals.

He'll sign, we're told, a minor league contract. The Royals understand that White remains interested in playing football, and they will be flexible in letting him return to football if/when an opportunity arises.

It's our understanding that White, in theory, would have an interest in the UFL. The problem is that, with only five teams and the season starting soon, he'd be relegated to a backup role, at best.

White has been picked multiple times in the baseball amateur draft, most recently by the Yankees in 2009, in the 48th round. (This year, Seahawks receiver Golden Tate was picked by the San Francisco Giants in round 50.)

Gonna date myself again here but back in the late 70's when the Royals were good & always lost to the Yankees in the AL championship series they had a little guy who played shortstop named Freddie Patek , good player who overcame his size with a big heart & lots of desire. Maybe they are looking for that again in Pat White as he kinda fits that mold. Then again maybe not & they just figure they have nothing to lose by signing him.

:grin:

The Royals are typically baseball's door mats.....

What a waste of a 2nd round draft pick. On a team full of holes, we reached big time for White....

Don't be so hard on the Dolphins for making that pick. A lot of the "experts" thought he'd be a sure thing. In fact, a lot of people think he'll make the College Football Hall of Fame. At the collegiate level he was a pure playmaker.
