Cap decisions coming in offseason

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-09

White completed five of six pass attempts for 74 yards, one touchdown and one interception across six regular-season appearances in 2023. He also rushed eight times for a loss of nine yards.

White wasn't called upon to do much as Miami's backup behind Tua Tagovailoa, mostly entering games late in the fourth quarter in contests where the Dolphins were simply running out a large lead. He remains under contract with Miami for the 2024 campaign, but the team has a potential 'out' for only a $1.7 million cap hit, whereas White will otherwise cost a significant $5.2 million against the cap. It wouldn't be surprising to see both sides agree on a restructure in the coming months, if there's mutual interest in remaining together.

Mops up in Week 13

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-06

White completed his lone pass attempt for three yards while playing the final 13 snaps of the Dolphins' 45-15 win over the Commanders on Sunday.

Tua Tagovailoa has started all 12 of the Dolphins' games this season, but White has gotten the chance to take snaps at the end of four contests, all of which were blowout wins. Over his four relief appearances, White has completed three of four attempts for 70 yards, one touchdown and one interception. If Tagovailoa were to miss time at any point, White could make for an intriguing lineup option in leagues that start two quarterbacks while he has access to a Miami offense featuring talented playmakers such as Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle, Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane.

Makes most of relief snaps

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-25

White completed both of his pass attempts for 67 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 70-20 win over Denver. He also lost one yard on his lone carry.

White entered the contest in the fourth quarter in relief of Tua Tagovailoa, with the game already well out of hand, and managed to connect with Robbie Chosen on a 68-yard score after a handful of initial plays were bottled up. It's difficult to take much away from Sunday's blowout win, but White certainly made the most of his first reserve action as a member of the Dolphins. He remains Tagovailoa's top backup heading into a Week 4 matchup at Buffalo.

Earns backup role

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-04

White will be the Dolphins' backup quarterback to start the season, Marcel Louis-Jacques of reports.

White securing the No. 2 role was expected, although not certain. The move will also officially relegate second-year pro, Skylar Thompson to the No. 3 role on the team's positional depth chart. White joined Miami on a two-year deal this offseason after spending 2021 and 2022 with the Jets.

Clears concussion protocol

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-27

Head coach Mike McDaniel said Sunday that White has cleared concussion protocol, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

White landed in concussion protocols following Miami's second preseason game and was sidelined for the finale. His absence has allowed Skylar Thompson to remain in contention for the backup spot behind Tua Tagovailoa, as McDaniel noted that he's not ready to announce who'll be the No. 2 yet.

Still in protocols

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-24

White is still in the league's concussion protocols despite practicing Wednesday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

White entered protocols Monday and after returning to the field Wednesday it was believed he had been fully cleared. However, the 28-year-old still hasn't made it through every step. Head coach Mike McDaniel has stated White will not play in Saturday's preseason finale against the Jaguars, even if he's been cleared to play.

Back in action

White (concussion) is practicing Wednesday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of reports.

White entered the league's concussion protocols Monday, but he was able to clear through them quickly. He'll now return to working to earn the team's No. 2 quarterback role over Skylar Thompson.

In concussion protocol

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-21

The Dolphins have placed White in the concussion protocol after noticing irregularities in his behavior during Saturday's preseason game against the Texans, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.

Miami planned for White to split reps with Skylar Thompson prior to his suffering a concussion, per Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post. The top backup to Tua Tagovailoa will now be unavailable until he's able to fully clear the league's five-step protocol for brain injuries. As a result, the team plans to re-sign James Blackmon ahead of this weekend's preseason finale versus Jacksonville, Wolfe reports.

Lackluster showing in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-11

White completed nine of 14 passes for 85 yards and an interception in Friday's preseason loss to the Falcons.

The former Jet got the start for the Dolphins and looked sharp on the opening drive until he got picked off in the red zone. White ended up leading Miami to no points on three first-half drives, but Skylar Thompson struggled just as much after intermission in an eventual 19-3 loss. White is the favorite to claim the No. 2 job behind Tua Tagovailoa after signing a two-year, $8 million deal in the offseason, but his first game action with his new club was unimpressive.
