Buffalo Bills pick up fifth-year option on All-Pro CB White

The Buffalo Bills have exercised the fifth-year option on the contract of All-Pro cornerback Tre'Davious White.  
 
This move will keep White under team control through the 2021 season and will earn him approximately $10million in the final year of his rookie deal. 
 
The 27th overall pick in the 2017 draft, White has emerged as one of the NFL's premier cornerbacks during his three-year career, earning first-team All-Pro honors in 2019 after tying for the league lead with six interceptions. 

White's 12 interceptions since the start of the 2017 season are tied for fourth among NFL players, while his 43 passes defensed over that span are tied for the fifth-most in the league. 
 
The 25-year-old has started 47 of Buffalo's 48 regular-season games as well as two postseason contests over the last three seasons, missing only the 2019 finale as the Bills rested a number of key players in preparation for the playoffs. 
 
Bills general manager Brandon Beane said in a radio interview back in March the team is hopeful of signing White to a long-term contract in the near future. 
 
"Any guy that's been in Tre's situation we want back, and obviously Tre is a guy we love and we want back," Beane remarked.
