Shortly after canceling his scheduled visit with the New York Giants, free-agent quarterback Pat White has planned a meeting with the Washington Redskins, likely his next landing spot, according to CBS Sports.

White was slated to meet with the Giants, his second visit after spending time in San Francisco last week. But after the 49ers traded for Colt McCoy to back up Colin Kaepernick, the need for White quickly dissipated.

The Giants already re-signed Eli Manning's longtime backup David Carr, though it was presumed White could fit the role of read-option/Wildcat quarterback in Kevin Gilbride's offense.

Aiming to add depth to their defensive line, defensive tackle Mike Patterson is paying a visit to the New York Giants.

Patterson, the longtime Philadelphia Eagle, was released in late February. The 29-year-old former first-round draft pick visited with the Detroit Lions shortly after, but no deal was reached.

Patterson's visit included a physical, according to reports, as Patterson's seizure during training camp in 2011 nearly ended his career. In January 2012, he underwent surgery to remove an arteriovenous malformation from his brain.

Former Miami Dolphins and West Virginia quarterback Pat White expressed interest in returning to the NFL earlier in the week.

White worked out with the 49ers on Thursday, and according to reports, the Giants are the next stop on his comeback tour.

The Giants re-signed David Carr to a deal earlier in the off-season, but White is potential third-string insurance policy and perhaps the player Kevin Gilbride could design a read-option/Wildcat package for.
