Mountaineers in the Pros

Former Mountaineer LB Kyzir White Agrees to Sign with Arizona Cardinals



A West Virginia product is turning contributing on a Super Bowl team to a nice payday.

Former Mountaineer linebacker Kyzir White has agreed to a two-year deal that’s worth up to $11 million with the Arizona Cardinals, according to Jordan Schultz of The Score. White, who is days aways from his 27th birthday, is leaving the Eagles after only one season and an appearance in Super Bowl LVII.

During his lone season in, White totaled 110 combined tackles, 1.5 sacks and seven passes defensed. The 2022 season marked the second consecutive year he surpassed 100 combined tackles. White’s individual success carried over to the playoffs as he led his team in tackles in the Eagles NFC Championship Game win over San Fransisco.

Prior to being drafted by the Los Angeles Chargers in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, where he spent his first four NFL seasons, White was a JUCO recruit from Lackawanna College. He then transferred to West Virginia, playing for the Mountaineers from 2016-2017. While at West Virginia, he played safety and forced four fumbles, recorded four sacks, 14.5 tackles for loss, 152 tackles and three interceptions in 25 games.
