Here with some late night New York Jets news, as the team has signed wide receiver Jordan White. The Jets drafted Jordan White in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Western Michigan. Jordan White recently injured his foot, but apparently that wasn't enough to keep the team from finalizing a deal. White is the last Jets draft pick to be signed this season.
The signing was first reported by Aaron Wilson of Fox Sports. Jordan White is the last New York Jets 2012 NFL Draft pick to be signed. The deal is said to be worth $2.145 million over four years. While it's not a crazy salary number, if White is healthy for training camp it does seem to give him some claim towards the final wide receiver spot behind Santonio Holmes, Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley and Chaz Schilens.
Jordan White broke a bone in his foot during Jets OTAs and had surgery earlier this offseason. He is expected to be ready for the start of training camp on July 26 at SUNY Cortland. He will be competing with Patrick Turner, Scotty McKnight, Royce Pollard and others for the fifth wide receiver spot, assuming there is one, on the Jets' 53-man roster.
Jordan White was extremely productive in his senior season at Western Michigan, hauling in 140 passes for 1,911 yards. He produced against top competition as well, posting 12 catches for 119 yards in a weather-shortened loss to the University of Michigan last season. His opportunity to claim a roster spot will likely depend on his ability to contribute on special teams coverage units for Mike Westhoff and Ben Kotwica.
