Pat White Signs With The CFL's Edmonton Eskimos

Former West Virginia Mountaineer quarterback Pat White is going to be an Eskimo. Well, not that kind of Eskimo.

White signed a deal Thursday to be the newest quarterback on the Edmonton Eskimos roster, a franchise of the Canadian Football League. He will join fellow Mountaineer alumni offensive lineman Selvish Capers, who just signed with the team two weeks ago. Following his time as a member of the Miami Dolphins in 2010, White threw for over 300 and ran for 103 more yards on the ground in the preseason with Washington last year. However, the Redskins elected to release him on September 14 even after respectable performances the prior month.

White will have to beat out Mike Riley, a former NFL quarterback himself with three NFL franchises, if he wants to start this season for Edmonton. The Eskimos enter the 2014 season off a 4-14 campaign last season, the second straight last place finish for the team in the CFL’s West Division. Edmonton plays their first game of their upcoming season on June 28 in Vancouver, British Columbia against the BC Lions.
