Former Dolphins quarterback Pat White wants it to be known: He’s only 26 years old and doesn’t have much wear and tear on his body.
“I’m still young. My legs are still with me,” he said Monday at the Senior Bowl. “I’m like a 2009 model with about 4,500 miles on it. It still runs just as smooth.”
He’s hoping to find an NFL executive who agrees and will give him a job.
White, the Dolphins’ controversial second-round pick in ‘09 who flamed out of the NFL after just one season, spent Monday shaking hands with NFL personnel people on a high school field outside Mobile. White didn’t get an NFL tryout after being cut by the Dolphins in September 2010, but believes he still can play in the league.
“I know that I can still do it,” said White, a Mobile-area native who still lives in Fort Lauderdale. “I just want to come out here, shake hands, show my face and let coaches know that I’m interested.”
White, who received $2.4 million in guaranteed money from the Dolphins, takes the blame for his NFL failure.
“Just wasn’t mentally ready to compete at the level that I needed to be,” he said.
