New Orleans Saints fans were ecstatic when the team announced its decision to part ways with the ineffective defensive back known as Corey White.
The move came as no surprise — he was a tremendous disappoint for the Black and Gold after showing flashes of his once entertained potential. The acquisition of Pro Bowl CB Brandon Browner to solidify the Saints’ struggling secondary made this decision an easy one.
Well, just one day after Sean Payton and company released Corey White, the Dallas Cowboys announced Saturday that they had claimed him off waivers.
Although he did have a career-high two interceptions, he performed quite poorly at cornerback in 2014, eventually being demoted and moved into a safety role as a backup to the backups. In three seasons with the Saints he recorded 125 tackles, 15 passes defended, four picks and a sack.
It was without question time for the Saints and White to go their separate ways. The club saved $1.5 million against the cap with the move, which likely had a hand in acquiring C.J. Spiller.
Since the free-agent frenzy kicked off March 10, the Cowboys have been one of the bigger let downs, losing the league’s leading rusher in DeMarco Murray to the division rival Philadelphia Eagles. Corey White may have just added more pain to their already-bad week. However, the kid’s got heart — he got a fair share of criticism by Saints fans throughout his time in the Big Easy and always seemed to take it well.
Sometimes all a player needs is a fresh start. Maybe White will get that chance in Dallas if he makes the final roster for the upcoming upcoming season. The New Orleans Saints will host the Cowboys in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in 2015.
