The Jets also activated OLB Frankie Luvu from injured reserve. 

It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks. 

White, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2018. He signed a four-year, $2.7 million contract with Dallas, but was waived coming out of the preseason last year.

White signed on to the Jets’ practice squad soon after and has been on and off of their roster ever since. 

During his college career at Western Kentucky and USF, White threw for 11,262 yards while completing 62 percent of his passes to go along with 74 touchdowns and 31 interceptions over the course four seasons and 44 games.
