The Facts: The Patriots have re-signed RB James White, a source tells ESPN's Field Yates.
Diehards Line: According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, it's a two-year deal worth $5 million. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler talked to White, who said the Raiders and Patriots showed most interest. "(New England) wanted me back, that's all that matters," he said. White, 30, returns after suffering a hip injury that cut short a promising start to his 2021 season. He finished with 12 catches for 94 yards and 10 carries for 38 yards and one touchdown last year. White is the third team captain to re-sign after Devin McCourty and Matthew Slater. He rejoins Damien Harris, Rhamondre Stevenson and J.J. Taylor in the team’s backfield. Another veteran back, Brandon Bolden, remains a free agent.
