White, selected in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, made the official announcement on his social media with a heartfelt message to all the fans in New England and every person that accompanied him on his journey.
“It’s been an honor to represent my family, my teammates, and the people of New England as a Patriot”, said White in a statement. “To say that Foxboro will always hold a special place in my heart is an understatement … Thank you to every coach, friend, family member who have watched and supported me throughout my career, it did not go unnoticed.”
White played in 95 games and tallied 4556 total yards in his career. Despite being listed as a running back, he served as a dual-threat for Bill Belichick’s offense. He caught 28 receiving touchdowns and scored 16 running touchdowns, including the playoffs.
In one of his most iconic scores, the only walk-off touchdown in the history of the Super Bowl to finish a historic comeback from the Patriots.
