waived WR Jordan White...He's expected to get surgery (sports hernia, I was told)

White finished his college career as Western Michigan's career leader in catches (306) and receiving yards (4,187). Unfortunately, White had a difficult time staying healthy, having had two separate ACL surgeries in college, one on each knee. He is currently battling a sports hernia, and is reportedly scheduled for surgery on Tuesday.

Many at GGN had high hopes for White due to his absurdly high level of productivity in college. After watching him in the preseason last year, I personally doubted whether he had the goods to be an NFL receiver. White struggled to get separation, struggled with his routes, struggled with his hands. He did not look fast enough or elusive enough to be an NFL receiver. Nonetheless, the young man worked hard to overcome several devastating injuries and made it onto the Jets active roster briefly at the end of the 2012 season. We wish Mr. White well in his future endeavors, unless of course they entail playing against the Jets. Good luck with your latest surgery Jordan White.
