Joins New Orleans' practice squad

The Saints signed White (illness) to their practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: White was waived by the Saints ahead of Monday's matchup against Tampa Bay to make room for Kirk Merritt on the active roster. However, White has since cleared waivers and will return to New Orleans on a practice-squad deal. He's made seven appearances for the Saints this season, securing two of five targets for 74 yards across 127 offensive snaps.

Let go Monday

The Saints waived White (illness) on Monday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: White joined New Orleans' practice squad Oct. 5 and was elevated for three games before signing with the active roster Nov. 7. However, the 30-year-old caught just two of five targets for 74 yards on 127 offensive snaps across seven games, and he was considered questionable with an illness heading into Monday's matchup against Tampa Bay. Therefore, White was let go to help make room on the active roster for practice-squad wideout Kirk Merritt ahead of this Week 13 contest. White will likely look to join up with a practice squad elsewhere if he does not wind up re-signing with the Saints later on.

Uncertain for Monday

White (illness) is listed as questionable for Monday's matchup against the Buccaneers, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The No. 3 receiver didn't practice both Thursday and Friday, but White appears to be trending in a positive direction after logging a limited participation in Saturday's practice. Despite the bump in playing time, White has just two receptions total this season and has just three combined targets since Week 9.

Targeted twice in loss

White failed to secure either of his two targets during Sunday's 20-10 loss against the Steelers.

Analysis: The 30-year-old appeared to serve as the Saints' No. 3 wideout as starter Jarvis Landry (ankle) returned from a five-week absence. With Marquez Callaway marked as a healthy scratch Sunday, White played a season-high 66 percent of New Orleans' offensive snaps behind wideouts Landry (77) and Chris Olave (79). While he still finished with fewer targets than tight ends Juwan Johnson (seven) and Adam Trautman (three), White's playing time could indicate an increased role heading into next Sunday's game against the Rams.

Signed to active roster

The Saints signed White to their active roster from the practice squad Monday, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: White was elevated for each of the previous three weeks, which means he needed to be signed to the active roster to appear in another game for the Saints this season. Over his three appearances, the wideout has caught just one of two targets but it went for 64 yards. If Jarvis Landry (ankle) remains sidelined, White figures to see around 20-30 offensive snaps against Baltimore.

Returns to practice squad

White reverted to the Saints' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: White was elevated for the third week in a row ahead of Sunday's win over the Raiders as wide receivers Michael Thomas (foot) and Jarvis Landry (ankle) remained sidelined. While the 30-year-old played a season-high 30 offensive snaps, he was not targeted while playing behind Tre'Quan Smith (38) and Chris Olave (37) but ahead of Marquez Callaway (21) and Rashid Shaheed (15). However, White did manage to show up on the stat sheet with and combined tackle with J.T. Gray on kick coverage. The wideout now will require a full spot on the active roster in order to suit up again for the Saints this season.

Suiting up vs. Las Vegas

New Orleans elevated White from its practice squad to the active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game versus the Raiders, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: This will be the third consecutive week White is active for the Saints and the last time he's eligible to be elevated from the practice squad before he would need to be signed to the team's 53-man roster in order to play. The former first-rounder has one reception for 64 yards on two targets through two games this season.

Reverts to practice squad

White was sent back to New Orleans' practice squad Friday.

Analysis: White joined the active roster for the second straight week prior to Thursday's loss to Arizona, and he played 21 of 72 offensive snaps -- fourth most among wideouts on the team. The 30-year-old saw just one target, but he made the most of it by hauling in a 64-yard pass from Andy Dalton. White could be needed again next week against the Raiders if Michael Thomas (foot) and/or Jarvis Landry (ankle) remain out.

Oct 21, 2022 7:08 PM EST


Elevated for Thursday night

The Saints elevated White from the practice squad ahead of Thursday's game against the Cardinals.

Analysis: White was added to New Orleans' active roster for the first time in last week's loss to the Bengals, logging one target without a catch over 12 offensive snaps. With Michael Thomas (foot) and Jarvis Landry (ankle) still sidelined, White should slide into a similar reserve role alongside Rashid Shaheed, as Chris Olave, Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway will likely get the start against Arizona.

Elevated to active roster

White was elevated from the Saints' practice squad to the active roster ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Bengals, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: White was added to Saints' practice squad Oct. 5. It's unclear if he'll be active for Sunday's game against the Bengals, but if so, it will be his first game action of 2022.

Joins New Orleans' practice squad

The Saints signed White to their practice squad Wednesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: White landed on IR at the end of August with an undisclosed injury and ultimately reached an injury settlement with the Saints, making him a free agent. However, he didn't garner much attention from around the league and has now returned to New Orleans after presumably clearing his previous injury. The wideout made six appearances and caught one pass for 38 yards across 52 offensive snaps for the Saints last year.

Reaches injury settlement

White (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement with the Saints on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: White was placed on IR on Tuesday, but he was able to reach an agreement with New Orleans and is now a free agent again. The wide receiver appeared in six games with the Saints last season, catching one pass for 38 yards while playing 52 offensive snaps.

Aug 27, 2022 5:19 PM EST


Placed on injured reserve

White (undisclosed) was placed on IR on Tuesday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: White's injury and when it occurred are still unknown, but the injury bug continues to bite the 30-year-old. He's yet to play more then nine games in any of his six NFL seasons, while playing four or less in three of them. White will now work to get healthy again and try to get his NFL career on track.

Aug 23, 2022 2:03 PM EST


Remains with Saints

The Saints signed White to a reserve/future contract Tuesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: White spent the 2021 campaign on the Saints' practice squad and will remain with the organization to begin the offseason. The 2015 first-rounder appeared in six regular-season games and caught one of five targets for 38 yards.

Activated off Saints' COVID list

White was activated off of the Saints' practice squad COVID list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: The 29-year-old had been away from the team since Dec. 27 after being placed on the COVID list. White will rejoin the Saints' practice squad and operate as a depth option, ready to be elevated if needed in Week 18 against the Falcons.

Jan 4, 2022 4:51 PM EST


Set for absence

White (illness) was placed on the practice squad COVID-19 list Monday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: White joined the Saints' practice squad on Dec. 7 and was elevated to the active roster for the team's Week 14 matchup against the Jets. He played primarily on special teams and did not command a target. If he can clear protocols, White could be a candidate to be elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game against Carolina if Tre'Quan Smith (chest) remains unavailable.

Dec 27, 2021 7:39 PM EST


Back to practice squad

White reverted to the Saints' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: White was added to the active roster for a Week 14 matchup against the Jets to account for a number of absences among the Saints' receiver corps. However, he did not log any stats on 12 offensive and 14 special teams snaps.

Dec 13, 2021 7:26 PM EST


Elevated from practice squad

White was promoted from the practice squad Saturday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: White, who has appeared in five games with the Saints this season, has a chance to take on a fairly significant role Sunday against the Jets. With Lil'Jordan Humphrey (hamstring) questionable, Ty Montgomery on the reserve/COVID-19 list and Deonte Harris suspended, White could end up as high as third on the Saints' wide receiver depth chart.

Dec 11, 2021 5:18 PM EST


Signed to Saints' practice squad

White was signed back to the Saints' practice squad Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The 29-year-old has been on and off of the Saints' practice squad all season, most recently being cut by the team Nov. 30. White has been active for five games this season for the Saints, reeling in one catch for 38 yards on 5 targets. With Deonte Harris (suspension) unavailable for three weeks, he may have an opportunity to crack the active roster once again in the coming weeks.

Dec 7, 2021 2:43 PM EST


Cut by Saints

White was waived by the Saints on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: White has one catch for 38 yards in five games for New Orleans this season, but he's now headed back to the open market, assuming he clears waivers. He could be a candidate to rejoin the team's practice squad.
