Devin White named NFC Defensive Rookie of the Month


The Buccaneers rookie inside linebacker Devin White has won NFC Defensive Rookie of the Month for November.


White earned the award by posting some impressive stats. Over the 5 game span in November White had 46 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 3 tackles for loss, 5 quarterback hits, 1 interception, 2 passes defensed, 1 fumble recovery and a fumble returned for a touchdown.

Those numbers are impressive for any player let alone a rookie. White ranks 6th amongst all defenders and 1st amongst rookies with his 4 tackles in that time span. The early season rumblings of “bust” are now silenced by the rookie out of LSU.
