In 2021, Peppers appeared in six games for the Giants and recorded 30 total tackles, one sack, no interceptions, and one pass defense.

White, 30, is a former fourth-round pick out of Wisconsin by the Patriots in the 2014 NFL Draft. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2,617,088 rookie contract when he agreed to a three-year, $12 million extension with the Patriots back in 2017. 

White made a base salary of $3 million in 2020 before agreeing on a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Patriots in 2021 that is fully guaranteed. He returned to the Patriots on a two-year deal this past March. 

In 2021, White appeared in three games for the Patriots and rushed nine times for 32 yards and a touchdown. He also caught 12 passes for 94 yards.
