Corey White lost his roster spot with the Saints on Friday, but he wasn’t out of work long.
The Cowboys claimed White off of waivers and added him to their 90-man roster on Saturday.
White opened last season as a starter in New Orleans, but was replaced in the middle of the season as New Orleans attempted to find a more effective defensive mix. That never really happened and the team signed Brandon Browner last week before cutting ties with their 2012 fifth-round pick.
The Cowboys now have White, Brandon Carr, Orlando Scandrick and Morris Claiborne at corner. Claiborne’s status for the offseason and training camp is uncertain because of injuries and Carr’s contract may need to be reworked for him to hold onto his roster spot for next season.
White is set to make $1.542 million if he makes the Cowboys roster, which is about the amount that Sterling Moore would have made if the Cowboys tendered him before free agency opened. Moore has visited the Buccaneers, but remains unsigned at the moment.
