Matt Nagy Is Going To Give Kevin White The Opportunity To Succeed

"It has been three years since Ryan Pace used his first ever draft pick as Chicago Bears general manager to draft wide receiver Kevin White seventh overall in 2015 and we still no idea if he will ever be an impact player.
Injuries have limited White to just five games over the past three seasons where he has 21 catches for 193 yards and zero touchdowns. White will give it another shot this season and if he can stay healthy (that's a big if) new head coach Matt Nagy is excited to work with him.
«For me, I really truly mean this when I say it, I'm really excited to dig deep into him and put him in the best situation possible for Kevin White to succeed,» Nagy said down at the NFL owners meeting on Monday, per Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic. «Here's a guy that we have on our roster that a lot of people can get lost in the shuffle or pushed to the side, and that's not going to happen. We're going to give him every opportunity to succeed and you see a kid that's working hard in the offseason, you hear it from different people. You just know those are the feel-good stories. How cool would that be to be able to get this kid to come back and be a dominant player?»
Expecting White to be a «dominant player» at this point is farfetched. If the Bears can get any kind of a contribution from him this it would be a big plus. "
