FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have signed wide receiver Jordan White, the team’s seventh-round draft pick, to a four-year contract.
White, sidelined by a broken left foot, is the last of the Jets’ eight draft picks to sign.
White broke the fifth metatarsal in the foot during the team’s first session of organized team activities on May 21. Team surgeon Dr. Ken Montgomery operated two days later at Morristown Memorial Hospital. He’s been with the team during minicamp, but his foot is in a walking boot. He’s expected to be sidelined until at least the start of training camp next month.
White played at Western Michigan, where he redshirted in 2006 and again two years later because of knee issues. He rebounded last year to catch 140 passes for 1,911 yards.
Jets fans, will Jordan White have an impact on the offense when he is healthy? Sound off in the comments below…
