Remember Kevin White? Well, the former Mountaineer receiver is trying to make sure the NFL didn’t forget about him.
The 30-year old former first round pick, who is trying to salvage his pro career that’s been derailed with injuries after being drafted by the Bears with the 7th overall pick in 2015, opened some eyes with a highlight reel type catch during practice on Saturday.

White can be seen separating himself from the defender and then using his length to go up for the ball while bringing in the catch inbounds.
The Saints signed White to a reserve/future contract in January to give him one more shot after previously signing and releasing him several times over the past year.
Since being drafted, White has only been able to record 323 yards on 26 receptions in the NFL. He was a member of the All-Big 12 team with WVU in 2014.
