Running back James White has announced his retirement from the NFL. This announcement comes after signing a two-year contract extension with the Patriots in March 2022, so he will forgo the $5 million deal to leave the league.
The NFL’s official Twitter account reported the news via Twitter on Thursday.
White was originally a fourth round pick of the 2014 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. He played with New England for his entire eight-year career, winning three Super Bowls over the Seahawks, Falcons and Rams. In Super Bowl LI, he scored the only walk-off touchdown in the history of the championship game in overtime.
In 2021, he played only three games due to a hip injury he suffered in Week 3. The best year of his career came in 2018, in which White played in all 16 games and rushed 94 times for 425 yards and five touchdowns. He added 87 catches for 751 yards through the air that season.
