Patriots Super Bowl hero announces retirement after great career
Being part of the Patriots was a special thing for White. The Kraft family trusted him and his impeccable style.
“Thank you Mr. Kraft, Coach Belichick, and the entire Patriots organization for giving me the opportunity to live out my childhood dream. To be able to play my entire career for one franchise, in front of the best fans in the NFL, has been a tremendous blessing and honor,” White wrote on Twitter.
The Patriots won a lot of games thanks to the running back. In his career, White earned three rings and delivered 381 receptions for 3,278 yards and 25 touchdowns to go along with 319 carries for 1,278 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Patriots fans will remember White’s touchdown in Super Bowl LI. The team shocked the Atlanta Falcons with a big comeback and the rest is history. White may be 30, but he did more than most players in today’s NFL.
