The Washington Post and CSN Washington both reported that the Redskins have decided to keep White on their 53-man roster, and the quarterback's name wasn't on the list of cuts announced by the team Saturday night. Rex Grossman also made the team, meaning coach Mike Shanahan will keep four quarterbacks on his roster.

Teams had until 6 p.m. ET on Saturday to reduce their rosters to a maximum of 53 players. Who was cut?
White's chances for a roster spot were bolstered by the preseason injury to Kirk Cousins. But White also helped himself with a surprisingly solid effort during August. The 2009 second-round draft pick of the Miami Dolphins hasn't taken an NFL snap since his rookie year, but White's ability to run a read-option style attack made him attractive to Shanahan in Washington.
White reportedly has improved his work ethic following a stint in minor-league baseball. His roster spot is precarious because teams rarely keep four quarterbacks for long. In the meantime, White's return to the league is quite a story.
