The Saints waived White on Thursday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Analysis: White was let go to make room for James Hurst on New Orleans' offseason roster. The Arizona State product latched on to the Saints' practice squad near the end of the 2019 regular season.
White signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Monday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: White signed with the Saints' practice squad a week ago, and the team will keep him around going into the 2020 season. The 25-year-old will compete for a depth role, and he'll likely need to contribute on special teams to make the final roster.
White signed with the Saints' practice squad Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: White had a workout with the Saints on Friday and showcased enough to receive an additional look from the team. The 25-year-old hasn't seen game action since Week 5 of last season with Baltimore.
The Jets signed White to a reserve/future contract Wednesday.
Analysis: White was waived by the Ravens in October, and did not land on another 53-man roster during the regular season. He caught his sole target for 14 yards during his tenure in Baltimore. The second-year pro will now compete for a depth role with the Jets, and could earn looks as a kick and punt returner this offseason.
The Ravens waived White on Monday, Jonas Shaffer of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Analysis: White was promoted from Baltimore's practice squad to the 53-man roster in late September and was mostly utilized as a kick and punt returner. The second-year wideout fumbled Sunday against the Browns, earning criticism from head coach John Harbaugh. If White clears waivers, the Ravens may have interest in re-signing him to the practice squad.
White was promoted from the Ravens' practice squad Saturday.
Analysis: White is primarily a return specialist. The Ravens waived current punt and kick returner Janarion Grant in corresponding move, so it seems like White may replace him right away. Still, Jordan Lasley could also get an opportunity. White will also provide depth at wide receiver.
White was waived by the Ravens on Saturday, Ryan Mink of the team's official website reports.
Analysis: White earned an IR stash as an undrafted rookie last season and may end up sticking around on the Ravens' practice squad. He was expected to push for a key role in the return game, but Janarion Grant made a stronger impression.
White brought in three of four targets for 70 yards and added one punt return for nine yards in the Ravens' 27-10 preseason win over the Dolphins on Saturday.
Analysis: The second-year speedster paced all pass catchers in both receptions and receiving yards on the night, making his case for a roster spot on the latter half of the wide receiver depth chart. That quest had experienced a setback over the prior pair of contests, games that White missed with an undisclosed injury. It remains to be seen if Saturday's effort is enough to help him gain ground on the likes of Jordan Lasley (three receptions, 30 yards) and DeVier Posey (two receptions, 31 yards, one TD), but White should have another opportunity to showcase his skills in next Thursday's preseason finale versus the Redskins.
White (undisclosed) is still in contention for a roster spot but is unlikely to play in Thursday's preseason matchup against the Rams, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic Baltimore reports.
Analysis: The severity of White's issue hasn't been disclosed, so there's still no word on whether his status for the rest of the preseason is in any sort of jeopardy. Still, Zrebiec notes that White has established himself as one of the top candidates to make the roster under the assumption that Baltimore keeps six receivers on the 53-man roster. White is battling with the likes of Breshad Perriman and rookies Jaleel Scott and Jordan Lasley for those final spots behind the top four wideouts. Not playing Thursday won't hurt White's standing for now, but he'll likely need to get back on the field in the near future to remain on solid ground with the team.
