With dual-threat quarterbacks taking the NFL by storm last year, the Giants might be looking to find one of their own.

Pat White, the former West Virginia star who is trying to resurrect an NFL career that seemed to die back in 2010, has plans to head to New Jersey for a visit and a workout with the Giants early next week, the Daily News has learned. The Giants want a closer look at the 6-foot, 206-pounder who launched his comeback at West Virginia's pro day earlier this month, according to two NFL sources.

He's obviously not a threat to Eli Manning or even backup David Carr, but having a third-string quarterback who can run the read-option for the scout team couldn't hurt in the NFC East, where the Redskins and Eagles will likely run similar offenses this year.

White, now 27, certainly can run. He was the NCAA's all-time leading rusher among quarterbacks when he left school and the Wildcat-happy Miami Dolphins drafted him with the 44th overall pick in the 2009 draft. He went bust after just one season, though, failing to complete any of his five passes and rushing just 21 times for only 81 yards and fumbling once.

He was cut the next summer and then had brief failed stints playing minor league baseball and in the United Football League. A few months ago, after noticing the NFL's new love of mobile quarterbacks, he began working out in California with noted quarterback guru George Whitfield in the hopes of resurrecting his career.
