New York Jets Wide receiver Myles White has moved from practice squad to practice squad. In this training camp profile, we take a look at how White avoids being overlooked again to alter his path as he lands a final roster spot.
With what we’ve seen so far, leading into the 2017 season, like the last 48 seasons, fans of the New York Jets remain agitated because again, there is little excitement and anticipation of a quality fantasy football season.
Alas, there is a bright side for Myles White and the other Jets wide receivers as it involves new offensive coordinator John Morton, his resume of player development as well as a generous use of the tight end as both blockers and playmakers.
The not so bright side, however, is less encouraging. This involves a gratuitous amount of expectation placed on the shoulders and hands of Jets receivers with much promise but little production.
With three returning receiving veterans who shared a combined six touchdowns for 2016, where or with whom should we place our hope. Here’s a breakdown of what to expect out of White as he enters training camp with the Jets.

2016 SEASON REVIEW
White was activated from the New York Giants 2015 practice squad just before the 2016 season began.
He spent most of 2016 on Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squads. The Jets signed White to a reserve/future contract in January 2017.
2017 SEASON OUTLOOK
Above all, for White, this is about getting a chance to play for his teammates and compete at the highest level. Unfortunately, most of the 2017 season may very well be spent waiting. And perhaps that wait may not be as long as one would expect as there are no guarantees we’ll see the production we expect from Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson, or Charone Peake.
Here, competition can become White’s greatest ally or his most formidable enemy. Either way, of the other six receivers competing for the fourth receiver spot, the glory goes to the guy who wants it the most.
TRAINING CAMP PREDICTION
As fate appears to have it, White has made a career of being overlooked and passed along. On his fourth NFL practice squad, White must alter his trajectory of flying under the radar as this time around, he will find himself on the final roster.
