Mike White: Secures future contract with Jets

The Jets signed White to a future contract Monday.

Analysis: White was elevated to the Jets' active roster on more than one occasion over the latter half of the season, as starting quarterback Sam Darnold missed time with a right shoulder injury. The 25-year-old ultimately did not reach the field this season, keeping White without a game appearance since he entered the league as a fifth-round draft pick of the Cowboys in 2018.

Mike White: Back with Jets' practice squad

White signed to the Jets' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: White was waived from the active roster Monday, but he'll remain with the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. The 25-year old could be promoted again for Week 12 if Sam Darnold (shoulder) isn't a sure bet to be available.

Mike White: Cut by Jets

White was waived by the Jets on Monday.

Analysis: The 25-year-old was promoted from the practice squad Saturday for depth with Sam Darnold (shoulder) expected to be sidelined Week 11, but it was a brief stay on the active roster. White could rejoin the team's practice squad if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

Mike White: Promoted from practice squad

White signed to the Jets' active roster from the practice squad Saturday.

Analysis: The 25-year-old served in a backup role earlier this season when Sam Darnold (shoulder) was sidelined, and he's now back on the active roster. Darnold is doubtful to play Sunday, so White is back from the practice squad to provide depth behind Joe Flacco and James Morgan.

Mike White: Shown door by Jets

The Jets waived White on Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: White was promoted from the practice squad to serve as Joe Flacco's backup during Monday's loss to the Patriots. With a bye week on tap for the Jets, White was let go. He has yet to play a game since being selected in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Mike White: Receives promotion for MNF

The Jets promoted White from the practice squad for Monday's game against the Patriots, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: An indication of the lack of trust that the Jets have for rookie quarterback James Morgan, White will serve as Joe Flacco's backup for the divisional tilt with Sam Darnold (shoulder) sidelined. White, a 2018 fifth-round pick, has yet to make his NFL debut.

Mike White: Returns to practice squad

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

Analysis: White was activated for Sunday's loss to the Dolphins but didn't end up taking the field. Should Sam Darnold (right shoulder) miss another week, White will likely be activated again as an emergency backup.

October 19, 2020 8:00 PM EST

Mike White: Promoted from practice squad

White was promoted to the Jets' active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: White has been elevated to the active roster as an extra player for the second straight game with Sam Darnold (shoulder) unlikely to suit up Sunday. Joe Flacco receives another start, and James Morgan should serve as the top backup option.

October 17, 2020 9:49 PM EST

Mike White: Sent back to practice squad

White was activated for the Jets' Week 5 loss to the Cardinals, but he has been reverted back to the team's practice squad after playing no snaps during the game, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: With starting quarterback Sam Darnold (shoulder) deemed inactive for Sunday's matchup against Arizona, the Jets were in need of QB depth behind Joe Flacco and James Morgan. Darnold's status for Week 6 remains uncertain after he participated in a throwing session Monday, meaning that White may once again be called upon during the Jets' approaching matchup against the Chargers.

October 12, 2020 5:38 PM EST

Mike White: Promoted for Week 5

White was promoted to the Jets' active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The 25-year-old signed with the practice squad at the start of the week and will serve as an extra player for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Starter Sam Darnold (shoulder) is out, but White is still unlikely to see the field with Joe Flacco and James Morgan already on the roster.

October 11, 2020 7:21 AM EST

Mike White: Joins Jets' practice squad

White signed to the Jets' practice squad Monday.

Analysis: The 25-year-old will provide some extra quarterback depth with starter Sam Darnold's status in doubt after suffering a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder. Joe Flacco and James Morgan are already on the active roster, so it's unlikely White will receive a promotion without another injury to the quarterback group.

October 5, 2020 1:44 PM EST

Mike White: Cut by Jets

The Jets cut White on Thursday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Analysis: White's place with the Jets became jeopardized by Joe Flacco's return to full health. He could have a chance to resurface on the team's practice squad as an emergency quarterback option.

October 1, 2020 3:28 PM EST

Mike White: Heads to active roster

White was promoted to the Jets' active roster Saturday.

Analysis: White beat out David Fales for a spot on the roster as the emergency quarterback and a promotion from the practice squad. So long as Joe Flacco (neck) remains out, White should have the chance to serve as the Jets' third quarterback.

September 12, 2020 2:07 PM EST

Mike White: Lands on practice squad

The Jets signed White to the practice squad Sunday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.com reports.

Analysis: The Jets also gave David Fales a spot on the practice squad, so White will continue to see competition for an emergency gig. He also spent the 2019 campaign developing on New York's practice squad.

September 6, 2020 5:34 PM EST

Mike White: Signs reserve/future contract

White signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: White signed with the Jets' practice squad in September after being selected in the fifth-round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Cowboys. White threw for 61 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 27 games for the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers while completing 66.4% of his passes.

Mike White: Wraps up lackluster preseason

White completed 14 of 26 passes for 132 yards in Thursday's preseason loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: The second-year QB got the start in the final preseason game but had another ineffective showing. White played into the third quarter but only managed to lead the Cowboys' offense to a single field goal, and his fumble on a first-quarter sack led to Tampa Bay's first TD of the night. Despite being a fifth-round pick in 2018, his lack of development has not only cost him a shot at overtaking Cooper Rush for the job of Dak Prescott's backup, it may end up costing White a spot on the roster entirely, even as a member of the practice squad.

August 29, 2019 9:31 PM EST

Mike White: Solid performance against Cards

White completed 17 of 22 passes for 157 yards and one interception in Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

Analysis: He was also sacked four times. The rookie QB put up better numbers in this one than Cooper Rush, his competition for the No. 2 job behind Dak Prescott, and while Rush was mostly facing Arizona's first-team defense while White took on the Cards' backups, it looks like this battle could extend into the final week of the preseason -- especially if the Cowboys decide they can't afford to devote three roster spots to quarterback.
