The Facts: If you suspected the Patriots' recent backfield machinations cast doubt on the future of Super Bowl LI hero White, think again. New England has agreed to terms with White on a three-year contract extension.
Diehards Line: As NFL.com's Chris Wesseling suggests, if not for Tom Brady's theatrics in directing a historic comeback, White would have captured Super Bowl MVP honors after totaling 139 yards and three scores on 20 touches versus the Falcons. Wesseling went on to note that far from a one-hit wonder, White was one of the NFL's most improved players in 2016. Displacing Dion Lewis as Brady's security blanket out of the backfield, the 2014 fourth-round draft pick finished first in receiving touchdowns (five) and third in receptions (60) and receiving yards (551) among NFL running backs. So don't get too caught up in the addition of Rex Burkhead and the offer sheet Mike Gillislee signed earlier today. White is still in the picture.
