Dolphins end experiment, cut White

The Pat White experiment is over in Miami.

One year after they selected White with the 44th overall pick in the 2009 draft, the Dolphins released the former West Virginia quarterback, The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported, opting to go with Chad Pennington and Tyler Thigpen as the backups to starter Chad Henne.

The one-year look at White cost the Dolphins $2.4 million in guaranteed salary as part of his four-year rookie contract, according to the report.

White had little impact as a rookie in the Dolphins’ Wildcat package, and when offseason reports suggested the team might try him at┬áreceiver, he tweeted he would rather return to playing baseball. He received little playing time during the preseason, playing in only the first and third games with little to show.
