This is surprising news. Chris Cooley predicted before the last pre-season game the Redskins could keep Pat White stating that Shanahan keeps the best 53 players regardless of position. One never knows what position will get injured most and since each NFL team has to make seven players inactive each week, if a fourth QB is one of the 53, so be it.
Supposedly given how many teams are QB starved (Bills, Jets, Patriots) maybe there is marginal trade options there as well. Stay tuned.
Per @CHICKatCSN Redskins will keep Pat White. 2 things: 1) have 'extra' spots w/Jenkins, Jackson out 4 wks. 2) insurance for RG3, KC hurts— John Keim (@john_keim) August 31, 2013
#Redskins keeping 4 QBs is shocking. White can pretend to be Vick all week & can help them while RG3/Cousins get clearance. But beyond that?— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) August 31, 2013
But, keeping Pat White means you have a mobile left-handed quarterback to practice against this week, prepping for Mike Vick.— Mike Jones (@MikeJonesWaPo) August 31, 2013
#Redskins roster: 4 QB, 5 RB, 4 TE, 8 OL, 5 WR... 6 DL, 8 LB, 5 CB, 5 S. One question remains: Briscoe (shoulder) waived or placed on IR?— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) August 31, 2013
