    A quarterback quest that began a year ago came to an official conclusion for the Edmonton Eskimos on Thursday, when the club announced it had signed Pat White.
    White had a standout career with the West Virginia Mountaineers, suiting up from 2005 to 2008. He racked up 6,049 yards and 56 touchdowns and rushed for 4,480 yards on 684 carries for 47 touchdowns. His NFL career was slowed by a concussion and he was out of the league for three years before making a comeback bid a year ago.
    That bid didn’t mesh with the Eskimos’ intentions to get him to the CFL last year (something that was detailed here), before general manager Ed Hervey had signed Mike Reilly. White signed with the Washington Redskins on April 2 last year and played well in a preseason game — he threw the game-winning two-point convert to lift Washington over Tennessee — but was waived on Sept. 14.
    Now 28, White joins a packed Eskimos’ quarterback carousel that features Reilly, Matt Nichols, Jonathan Crompton and Jacory Harris. White hasn’t played a full season since his senior year at WVU, but those numbers and his athleticism (he signed a minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals in 2010) make him an intriguing CFL prospect.

    He sure can run, that will help him up here. But IMO the esks have a great QB in reilly.

    the way Reilly plays, he's constantly one play away from a bodybag.
    that said, I highly doubt this guy will beat him out.

    Reilly has added another 20lbs this yr. That should help a little. And I do think reilly is the one to stick with.
