WASHINGTON -- RG3, plus three more.
The Washington Redskins are keeping four quarterbacks on their 53-man roster.
Pat White, who this year returned to the NFL after a detour through baseball, made the cut Saturday when the team trimmed its roster at the league's deadline.
He joins Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins and Rex Grossman as the QBs for the reigning NFC East champions.
In training camp, the former West Virginia University football star White looked like a rusty quarterback who hasn't played in the NFL since 2009, the year he was a second-round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins.
He played better in preseason games, and he provides an extra bit of insurance with both Griffin (knee) and Cousins (foot) coming off injuries.
There's no doubt White can run, but his ability as a passer remains an open question. He played the entire fourth preseason game Thursday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, completing 13 of 22 passes for 181 yards in a game that included few regular starters. He also had an interception returned for a touchdown.
White rushed for three touchdowns in preseason, but he didn't throw a touchdown pass and was intercepted twice.
