Pat White will probably play in the NFC East, it just won’t be with the Giants.

White, a spread-option quarterback who was a second-round bust with the Dolphins, cancelled his visit with the Giants and seems likely to sign with the Redskins, according to a CBSSports.com report.

White would have been an unlikely fit for the Giants with Eli Manning and David Carr entrenched as the starter and backup, and Tom Coughlin usually limiting the team two active quarterbacks. With Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III expected to miss most, if not all, of the preseason White could see more time in Washington.

White, 27, a 2009 second-round pick (44th overall) of the Dolphins who lasted one ineffective season before he was jettisoned. But he is a superior athlete, a former record-setting option quarterback at West Virginia, who holds the NCAA mark for rushing yards by a quarterback.
