White heads to New York after the Jets waived return specialist Brisly Estime. A former Bill, he recorded two interceptions and four passes defensed in 15 games, including four starts, last season. The 27-year-old will now compete for a reserve spot in hopes of making the 53-man roster in September.
White could be a sneaky source for tackles, though Corey Graham will see a higher snap count and is the better IDP safety to own, as Jonathan Meeks is expected to spell White at times.
White lined up with the first team during Monday's practice, while the coaches have told him he's in an "open competition" for a starting cornerback spot opposite Stephon Gilmore, The Buffalo News reports.
Gilmore and Ronald Darby came into the season as one of the league's most formidable cornerback duos, but they've grossly disappointed at various times. It's Darby who's under fire from the coaching staff right now, so we'll see who ends up the starter for this week's game against the Bengals and their weapon-heavy passing attack.
White (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.
White's shoulder aliment seems to be behind him as he was able to practice in full Thursday. As a backup cornerback, he shouldn't receive many defensive snaps regardless of his health, but could play a significant role in special teams on Sunday against the Dolphins.
