I'd be surprised by that. But if we did, it's as a courtesy to Stoops. We've done the same thing with Kansas college QB's a couple times in recent history.

I heard we signed him and then converted him to safety.

I heard they signed him so the vets would have a wimp to tape to the goal posts. None of them want to mess with Boomer........

And then we can convert him to CB.

It's not showing up on the transactions list.

I guess I didn't watch Oklahoma enough.

Why does everyone Hate White? A Heisman and a couple of championships isn't bad. The only down I can think of(because I haven't watched him) is that he's had some knee surgeries.

I heard it too, on 810 I think....I thought he had signed with Dallas

He signed with the Chiefs. Good move IMO.

No arm. Questionable accuracy. Limited mobility due to his surgeries. (both knees). Overall, i'd say he is an average QB. If he works hard (noone can question his work ethic...), he could make it.

He throws like a 12 year-old girl.

Hopefully this will push the other Heisman QB on our roster to perform better. The "Assistant Towel Boy" position has lots of competition this year.

He looks great until he faces good college defenses. There is no way he's on this or any other NFL team.

White is one of those guys that just doesn't translate to the NFL.

Excellent move. I think White and Kilian have an excellent chance at the #3 QB spot. White's arm doesn't translate to the NFL game like you would hope, but this offense doesn't require a big arm.

I don't like White as a prospect, but I'm glad we brought in another QB.

Who's in the running for #3 now? Kilian, Clausen, Huard, White?

Huard.

DV already said Kilian would be a practice squad guy for a year or two.

Clausen couldn't even make it on an active roster in NFLE.

White = camp arm

Skip Towne

Yep it sure did. I don't want him for reasons already stated. Plus he is from OU. They do OK in the Big XII but get killed against top teams.

Okay, not really. I just like saying that because it makes the chicks think I'm strong yet sensitive.

Its funny, I heard DV on sirius nfl station yesterday and they asked him about White. He stated then that he didn't have the arm strength.....I guess it don't hurt anything to try him out.

I wanted to spend a 7th on him, glad he signed. I think he'd make a nice 3rd QB, and has definite upside. Great news.

Jason White has ZERO chance of becoming an NFL QB.

He will be on the PS or cut, but still funny.

If I were Clausen I'd be headed back across the pond if I wasn't even a backup. He can get more out of beibg at the mini camps then he can being a practice squad player for NFLE. If I were the HC I'd bring him back. I think there's politics that goes on which determines who the starting QBs are in NFLE.

He's on the NFLE practice squad. Considering how bad some of the second stringers on the teams are (most of them get a series or two in the games), I think it says a lot about his skills. You may be right on the politics, though.

One reason he may be staying is so the Chiefs still get his NFLE roster exemption during camp and the preseason.

True, but I still found the irony of the situation humorous. (I'm not saying he's wrong.) :)

When the game is on the line, against a tough defense, he crumbled. He is not a pressure performer.

I don't care what else he did, his performance against KSU, LSU and USC along with his health issues kept him from being drafted.

He is a system QB, very little pro potential. Poor arm, moderate accuracy, lost his mobility to the knee surgeries, not considered to be much of a leader. Not required in that offensive system.

Moderate accuracy? The guy had completed 198 passes without an INT. White has the accuracy of an NFL QB in the right system. His arm strength and knees are the question mark. (Along with the talent arguement).

Everyone knocked Ken Dorsey a while back for the same type of stuff. He is a decent backup QB in the league now. That's all we are asking White to do...At best.

My prediction for (what it is worth) is that next year they will draft a QB on the first day. Also they will want to find Roaf's replacement.

ESPN.com says the Chiefs haven't offered him a contract. He'll need to be impressive in his tryout if he wants to get signed.
