The New England Patriots watched running back James White for a long time in Foxborough. Ever since the 2014 NFL Draft, White has been a member of the Patriots.

Now, he has announced his retirement with a lengthy post on Thursday morning as he begins a new chapter in his life.

White suffered a hip injury during the 2021 campaign that kept him on the sideline more often than not, and he was also slow in progressing during the offseason. Now, at the age of 30, White has decided to call it a career and hang up his cleats.

Patriots fans (and NFL fans) reacted to the news of James White deciding to retire from the NFL.

White made many memorable plays in a Patriots uniform, including the Super Bowl walk-off in that improbable comeback against the Atlanta Falcons.

White’s name will forever be tied to Patriots history for this game and that play, and he was a significant target for Tom Brady for those years in New England.

Fans and analysts came quickly to remember the best plays of White’s career, and while the Super Bowl winner is the most notable, he also dazzled plenty of other times.

Hats off to an incredible career from James White, who finished with 4,556 total yards and 36 touchdowns.
