In 47 career games for the Bills, White has been nothing but reliable with 181 combined tackles, one sack, 12 interceptions, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and a touchdown. The only game he missed was this past season when he was given a rest for Buffalo's Week 17 matchup with the New York Jets.
White will be entering the fourth-year of his rookie contract, set to earn $1.8 million in base salary this season. The Bills have also exercised their fifth-year option on White for 2021, meaning he is under contract for two more seasons. He’s set to earn over $10 million in 2021 if he plays on his current contract. However, White is most likely looking at a massive extension some time soon. The team has publicly stated they would like to lock him up long-term.
If he had chosen to opt out, White’s contract would have tolled, meaning it would be frozen and picked up next year at the same spot it is now. He would have been paid $150,000 as a stipend and advancement towards next year’s salary.
