Cornerback Corey White said that he was cut by the Cowboys because he didn’t wear a suit on the team’s trip to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers earlier this season, something that Cowboys coach Jason Garrett didn’t dispute while discussing White’s departure last week.

It seems the Cardinals have fewer concerns about White’s sartorial choices. The team signed White to their 53-man roster on Tuesday.

White joined the team a couple of days after starting cornerback Jerraud Powers hurt his calf in the team’s victory over the 49ers. He played seven games for Dallas, starting once, and played in 41 games for the Saints over the last three games. Coach Bruce Arians called Powers day-to-day earlier this week.

The Cardinals released cornerback Robert Nelson in a corresponding move and also added safety D.J. Swearinger to their practice squad. Swearinger was a second-round pick of the Texans in 2013, but was waived by Houston in the offseason and by the Buccaneers earlier this month.
