Cardinals Release WR Kevin White


Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals are releasing WR Kevin White from their preseason roster on Wednesday. 

Schefter adds that White was recovering from a hamstring injury over the past week. 

White, 26, is a former No. 7 overall pick by the Bears out of West Virginia in the 2015 NFL Draft. He played out the final year of his four-year, $16.563 million fully guaranteed rookie contract and made a base salary of $2,693,598 for the 2018 season.

White has struggled to remain healthy since being drafted. He missed his entire rookie season after sustaining a stress fracture in his shin, and then landed on the injured reserve once again in 2016 after suffering a spiral fracture in his fibula.

The year after that, White sustained another season-ending injury in Week 1 after going down with a fractured collarbone.

He signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals back in March, making his stint in Arizona short-lived. 

In 2018, White appeared in nine games for the Bears and caught four passes for 92 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
