Free-agent RB LenDale White has shown flashes of brilliance during his four-year NFL career, but questions about his work ethic and consumption of alcohol and marijuana have left him without a team and suspended for the first four games of the 2010 season. Not surprisingly, White told Fox Sports Radio’s “Petros and Money” show that his phone has been silent.
"Nobody’s called me, but I’m preparing to play in the NFL and that’s what I’m going to keep continuing to work on," White said (via SportsRadioInterviews.com). "That’s the highest league that we have. I’m not taking any shots or disrespecting any other leagues, but it’s the National Football League that everybody wants to play in. I’m preparing to play for a team this year in the NFL."
White was abruptly cut by the Seahawks this offseason, not long after they traded for him. The move surprised many, especially considering that White’s former college coach, Pete Carroll, had taken the reins in Seattle.
"It is what it is … it’s unfortunate," White said. "I regret everything, if I did anything wrong or whatever I did. But it just wasn’t the place for me."
