2nd Team Getting Their First Start
Glad he's back for at least one more go round... Figured the Pats would offer him a contract unlike some who figured he'd be heading to tampa on day 1 of free agency

Last year was a tough one for James White so I am not at all surprised his numbers were down. Between Covid and his parents' car crash resulting in the death of his father and severe injuries to his mother, I'm surprised he played as much as he did. After that car accident, his mind was probably elsewhere for quite a while.
I don't even think the reduced production was because of his own play. He was just being thrown terrible passes. To his credit, he caught a large majority of them, but as other have said in this thread, even those completions were affected by Cam's accuracy in that he was often put in a position to get less yards after the catch and/or take a big hit.

Different offense.




Between the shrinking cap and playing with Scam and the Little Sisters of the Poor at the skill positions last year, this probably wasn’t the best year to enter FA for White.

Still would've thought brady would push the bucs to sign him.

They were missing a pass catching back last year. But they also still haven't resigned fournette.

Me either, still shocked Brady and Tampa didn't steal him at 3 or 4 mill.
I agree, but at the same time BB has always tried to keep that skillset on the roster. That receiving back position adds versatility to the playbook and I think it's pretty clear that White has a few more seasons in the tank, especially now that the TE blocking is on far more stable footing. With more meat on the front lines to create gaps I expect White to be able to exploit them way better than last year

bb was ok with letting vereen leave town, before white was on the roster.

I know bb let both of them test free agency but it may be more accurate to say white chose to return.

That’s pretty much what im saying, just suprised at the complete lack of interest elsewhere esp tampa

Their loss is our gain. He's far more valuable than his salary. If Tompa Bay had a RB with his hands and ability they'd be even more formidable on offense than they are now.

Your timing is off. White was drafted in 2014, which was Vereen's final season with the Patriots.
I thought that Vereen was the best pass-catching RB until I saw White. He's better and I think more affordable.
