Two days after making Green Bay's roster, Myles White is being let go.

The Packers have informed White he will be released to make room for wide receiver James JonesESPN's Rob Demovsky reports. The veteran receiver Jones agreed to rejoin the Packers on Sunday afternoon.

It was a good preseason for White, who led the Packers in receiving with 16 catches for 157 yards along with two touchdowns in the team's preseason finale against the Saints. His performance last Thursday seemed to solidify his spot on the roster.

White originally joined the Packers roster as an undrafted free agent in 2013. The Packers cut White after training camps in 2013 and 2014, but added him to the practice squad each time. He was promoted to the 53-man roster his rookie season and caught nine passes for 66 yards in seven contests. Last year he spent the entire season on the practice squad.

White does have the option of returning to the Packers' practice squad for a third time if he clears waivers. That seems unlikely, though, especially since he could probably get a roster spot with a team looking for receiver help.
