The Cowboys claimed White off waivers Saturday, ESPN NFL Nation's Mike Triplett reports.

White was a liability in the New Orleans secondary last year, but the Cowboys are perennially short on depth at just about every defensive position, so they'll give him a look for now.

White was released by the Saints on Friday, ESPN's Mike Triplett reports.

White struggled badly in 2014, eventually losing his starting job. He still managed to finish the year with 50 tackles and two interceptions in 15 games (nine starts), as he was frequently picked on by opposing quarterbacks. Still just 24 years old, White is unlikely to find a starting job but should draw plenty of interest from teams in need of depth.

White made three tackles (all solo), defended three passes and had an interception in Thursday's win against the Panthers.

White has quietly been posting sneaky fantasy value in IDP leagues, as teams typically avoid shutdown cornerback Keenan Lewis in the passing game. While the Panthers actually challenged Lewis on Thursday, in large part because Kelvin Benjamin is their only reliable wide receiver, White still managed to pick off a pass for the second consecutive week - though it should be noted that he was actually beat on the play but lucked into a fortunate bounce after the ball skipped off the hands of the wide open receiver he was guarding. The next three weeks bring three run-heavy offenses to New Orleans (San Francisco, Cincinnati and Baltimore), which could limit White's opportunities in the passing game, but he should continue to have IDP value in deeper leagues so long as teams shy away from Lewis.

White made six tackles (five solo) and recorded his first career sack in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

White now ranks third on the Saints with 29 tackles this year, as he continues to produce after replacing Patrick Robinson in the starting lineup. With teams likely to continue avoiding White's cornerback counterpart, Keenan Lewis, White should see plenty of passes his way, giving him every opportunity to rack up tackles and pass defenses, making him a viable option in IDP leagues.

White made three tackles (all solo) in Sunday's win against the Vikings, playing 98 percent of the defensive snaps, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

White took over the starting cornerback position, opposite Keenan Lewis, with Patrick Robinson relegated to special teams play following his demotion from the starting lineup. While Sunday's performance was nothing to write home about against the run-oriented Vikings, White could be a sneaky IDP option going forward, as he should have plenty of opportunities to rack up stats with teams likely avoiding Lewis' side of the field.

Saints placed CB Corey White on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

A fifth-round pick in last April's draft, White had been serving as the Saints' nickel back before first going down in Week 10. He had appeared in just one game since. White should be 100 percent well ahead of training camp, and will likely open 2013 as New Orleans' No. 3 or 4 corner.

Saints CB Corey White (knee) has been ruled out for Week 14.

White has battled the knee issue over the last month, missing two games before returning last week to play special teams. Johnny Patrick has handled White's nickel duties over the last three games, and will serve as the Saints slot cornerback in Sunday's game against the Giants.

Saints agreed to terms with fifth-round CB Corey White and seventh-round OT Marcel Jones on four-year contracts.

Coming from small-school Samford, the Saints plan to let White compete with Johnny Patrick for nickel duties in camp. It's a battle Patrick should easily win, leaving White to play primarily special teams as a rookie. Jones is a massive 6-foot-6, 320 pounds, but had a poor Combine following an injury-marred college career. He's likely ticketed for the practice squad.

Saints fifth-rounder Corey White is expected to battle Johnny Patrick for the third cornerback spot.

Patrick will be the heavy favorite. The Saints appreciate White's size, speed, confidence, and press ability, but he may have a learning curve coming from small school Samford. The Saints will hold off on moving White to safety for now.
