Chicago Bears: 5 players who belong in the Bears ‘Hall of Shame’
Chicago Bears Hall of Shame Inductee No. 5: Kevin White, WR (2015-2018)
Drafted: 1st round, 7th overall (2015)
"Career stats with Chicago Bears: 5 games started; 14 games played; 48 targets, 25 receptions; 285 yards; and the worst of them all: 0 TDs"
Well, here we are. The first inductee for the Chicago Bears Hall of Shame. First up, we have Kevin White, a wide receiver out of West Virginia University.
Obviously, as some can assume if they didn’t already know, Kevin White was a highly touted college prospect coming out of West Virginia. In two seasons, he had a total of 144 receptions, 1,954 yards, and 15 touchdowns. On the flip side, a common criticism of White’s game was his inability to run a route other than the “run a straight-line really fast” route.
In that draft, Amari Cooper was the only receiver taken before White, but in the Bears’ defense, Kevin White’s career and induction into this Hall could’ve looked a lot better had White not caught the injury bug.
Thanks to hindsight, I can curl up into a ball knowing the Bears could’ve had Stefon Diggs in this draft, as he dropped to the fifth round. Oh well, that’s for a different article. Back to Kevin White and the Bears Hall of Shame.
As I was saying, Kevin White’s problems weren’t really his fault, so it’s bittersweet adding him here. But his career in Chicago, after being a seventh-overall pick, was very disappointing.
In three seasons with the Bears, White contributed 25 receptions, 285 yards, and no touchdowns. You can see why people were upset with how Kevin White’s career with the Bears ended up, but since most of his issues were due to injuries, he’ll sit at the No. 5 spot in the Chicago Bears Hall of Shame.
