Consider it a formality for one of the top players at his position. White is coming off an All-Pro season after tying for the NFL lead with six interceptions and not surrendering a touchdown in coverage. The fourth-year CB already has 12 INTs and 43 passes defensed in his young career while pacing one of the league's best defensive units.
White will likely be in line for a big pay day with the Bills, who selected him No. 27 overall three years ago. Exercising his option ensures he remains in Buffalo through 2021.
