Bears coach Matt Nagy eager to work with WR Kevin White
0

Before receiver Kevin White shared a shirtless picture of himself flexing in Hawaii on social media, he sent it to his younger brother Ka’Raun, who is participating in the NFL Scouting Combine.

*****

The White brothers are nearing their dream of being in the NFL at the same time.

“It’s something we wanted since we [were] little kids, and to be in this situation, to actually make our dreams come true, is pretty incredible,” Ka’Raun said.

Meanwhile, the Bears still are trying to figure out what to expect from White. Receiver is a priority for the organization in free agency and the draft, but the plan is to give White one more chance after serious injuries limited him to only five games in three seasons.

“Kevin is a guy you see who hasn’t had a lot of games these past few years,” Bears coach Matt Nagy said. “We understand that, but for me, that’s the challenge as a head coach. 

‘‘You love to see those kinds of situations. You don’t make any promises that anything’s going to happen. But you see a kid like that, you know his road and where he’s at, and I look at that as a personal challenge to get him to a place where we want to get him.”

Looks like Tarzan, plays like Mr. Glass!

 

 

Sorry, don't want to be mean, but this guy just cannot stay healthy! Regardless if his body is shredded or not! I truly hope he has a breakout year and catches 100 passes for 1500 yards and 20 TDs. That is about the only way he is going to avoid the bust label.

Rebuilt!

Bears are who we hoped they'd be.

I still have zero expectations of White, but i would be thrilled if Nagy turned him into a reliable WR.

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.

Saw the picture of White posing he looks great but who cares he looked pretty jacked coming out of college. He's a bust until proven otherwise. He can be as jacked up as he wants but until they hold a pose off competition on the field it don't mean shit.

im not sure Im willing to put him in the "bust" category do to BAD injury luck just yet. This kind of thing just cannot be predicted. Strength and conditioning is also important for bone health too. We all know strength and conditioning has been a huge issue in Chicago...I hope he breaks out this year...if not hes prolly gone unless we get a huge deal on him lol

White has been ripped since he came out of college, so it hasn't helped him at all from breaking bones. The guy is a bust due to not being on the field. It is not as bad as being a talent bust, but non-availability is still a bust category. I really feel bad for him, but the Bears just cannot count on him.

I too hope he has a massive year, but I won't hold my breath. And no one in the world would offer a cheese sandwich for him, much less a draft pick. Kevin White reminds me of the long line of Lions first round picks at WR. They all looked the part, but for one reason or another never could find success on the field. Well, until Calvin came along, too bad he was stuck on  a perennial choke artist team.

I am actually more excited about Tanner Gentry this year. He got a few games under his belt in 2017. I am hoping he continues to develop and becomes the threat he was supposed to be out of the slot. I do not think he is a WR1 or WR2 but as a WR3 he could be very good.

Just have to hope Gentry does not go the way of Braverman, and just fade away. (Braverman was a good story, too bad he didn't work out though)

White's "career" so far, and if you can even call it that, is so injury plagued it's  impossible to really know or anticipate what is coming next imo.  We could be sitting on a game breaking WR no one has seen play yet, or we could be in for one last year of paying a guy to sit on the bench.

 

I have no idea what to expect, but those in the driver seat must have had a lot of faith in the guy to have let two very good WRs leave since he arrived presumably anticipating he would fill some level of the void left by their departure.  It was one thing to let Marshall go while Alshon was still in Blue n Orange and roll the dice that the rookie White would fill in a piece of the puzzle, but to then let Alshon go.......?  I assume they were counting on White at that point in an even larger capacity than they were his rookie season even though he had yet to prove anything yet in a live game.

So now here we are.  All that confidence invested, one season left to prove it.

I just don't know how they can expect him to not get hurt again. Sadly it just seems he has brittle bones. I don't know if a new trainer, diet, workou, or whatever will change that? 

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.

I agree, it does seem hes brittle and that may be the case...he really didnt have that history until coming to the NFL.
