White has been with the Panthers (mostly on the practice squad) since 2018 and was released by the Panthers last week. He is now the tenth wide receiver on the team’s roster.

According to the team’s report on the signing, White saw action in 10 games last season and had four catches for 51 yards. He also saw some playing time at kick returner, and it could be classified as an experience for anyone who watched.
Given the amount of wide receivers on the roster already, I can’t imagine that White is a favorite to make the team. He’ll probably get a lot of work in the preseason to keep guys like DJ Moore and Curtis Samuel fresh for the games that count, but White will most likely be cut before the regular season begins. If there’s a spot for him on the roster, it’s as Pharoh Cooper’s backup at kick returner. He has a slim chance at grabbing a final roster spot for that reason alone, but it’s more likely he’ll end up being cut or placed on the practice squad.
