Nothing is permanent in the NFL, especially at quarterback, but Pat White apparently has made the Washington Redskins' initial 53-man roster.
Let that sink in when you consider that Tim Tebow, Vince Young, Jimmy Clausen and Matt Leinart and others are out of work, and that the Redskins apparently will start the season with four quarterbacks.
White had an impressive preseason, but there have been some who wonder how comfy he should be getting now. Four quarterbacks is rare (although Tom Brady was once a fourth quarterback, his rookie season) with roster space at a premium, and the speculation is that the lefthanded, speedy White could serve as a Michael Vick impersonator as the Redskins prepare for the Week 1 game against the Eagles.
Still, it's an impressive comeback for White after he flamed out of the league and kicked around the UFL for a spell, with Bill Parcells saying he and the Dolphins "violated their principles" with the drafting of White in Round 2 back in 2009.
