White, 26, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Louisiana Tech back in 2013. He spent a good amount of time on the Packers’ practice squad, but managed to make the 53-man roster last year.
However, White was unfortunately waived to make room for James Jones. He wasn’t out of a job for long, as the Giants signed him to their practice squad just a few days later.
The Giants brought White back on an exclusive rights deal back in April but he was unfortunately among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason. He has been on and off of the Jets’ practice squad this season.
In 2015, White appeared in 12 games for the Giants and recorded seven receptions for 88 yards receiving and a touchdown.
Cliett, 24, was taken with the No. 211 overall pick in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL draft by the Texans. He was in the second year of his four-year, $2,370,484 contract when the Texans elected to waive him as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.
The Broncos added him to their practice squad a few weeks into the regular season before cutting him loose earlier this month.
Last year, Cliett, unfortunately, missed the entire 2015 season after he sustained a torn ACL before the start of the regular season.
During his college career at South Florida, Cliett recorded 134 tackles, seven sacks, two fumble recoveries and seven pass defenses over the course of four seasons.
