James White announces retirement
Patriots RB James White has announced that he is retiring from the NFL.
White has been dealing with an injury that he sustained last season, and his recovery has been very slow. He initially intended to play this season, but he is prioritizing his health and calling it a career. He has been a very effective back throughout his career, including a breakout performance that helped the Patriots beat the Falcons in the Super Bowl. For fantasy purposes, this opens the door for Rhamondre Stevenson and Pierre Strong to see a big uptick in receiving work for New England.
