Former Saints cornerback Corey White is fitting in well with the Dallas Cowboys, almost three months after he was claimed off of waivers by the team.
White spent three seasons with the Saints after being drafted in the fifth round out of Samford in 2012, and has 125 tackles, 15 passes defensed and four interceptions in his career. According to Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News, White has been working with the second team defense since OTAs started last week.
“I think I fit well so far,” White said. “It’s only been a couple weeks for me, but it’s going well. I’m getting along with the players, the coaches seem like they got plans for me. We’ll see how it goes.”
As their selection of Byron Jones in the first round seems to indicate, the Cowboys like versatility among members of their secondary, and White fits that bill. While primarily a corner, he played safety in college, and toward the end of his time in New Orleans.
“My first goal is just to make the team,” White said. “We got a lot of talent on this team, a lot of DBs. But when you’re making a 53-man roster, you got to look at other positions, too. We got a lot of talent on this team, so my first goal is to make the team. And of course, contribute. Try to help this team out, try to win a Super Bowl.”
