Summary

A very similiar back to Dion Lewis, White was a big part of the New England Patriots comeback in the Super Bowl, and while he hasn't always been as productive during the regular season as the Patriots would like, that Super Bowl showed he has plenty of ability to tap. Given the injury history on Lewis, White is great insurance for New England. While they are both healthy, the Patriots can split one or both wide, or have one out wide while a second back is in the backfield. White isn't as dynamic as Lewis by any stretch, but from a health standpoint he's more reliable. The Patriots are likely to mix and match these two, perhaps as part of a rotation. Since both guys have similar skill-sets, they'll eat into the same bunch of carries in what is already a committee backfield. (May 22)
