Cornerback Tre’Davious White is reported to be signing a one-year, $8.5 million deal with the Los Angeles Rams. Adam Schefter shared that the contract has “a max value up to $10 million,” per sources shared with him.

White, who was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft and has spent his entire career (seven seasons) in Western New York, was released by the Bills on March 13 as a post-June 1 cut — a move that saved the team $10.2 million in salary cap.

Over the past seven seasons, White has played in 82 games — starting all of them — and has 311 combined tackles with three sacks. He’s forced five fumbles and recovered four over his career, but it’s his passes defensed (68) along with his 18 interceptions that have earned him the reputation of one of the league’s best corners.

White spent most of the past two seasons on Injured Reserve. The All-Pro cornerback tore his ACL in a 2021 Thanksgiving Day win over the New Orleans Saints. It was a year before he finally took the field again. After playing the final six games of the 2022 season, White was trying to regain his All-Pro form at the start of 2023. However, in Week 4, the 29-year-old White tore his Achilles tendon in a game against the Miami Dolphins once again ending his season early.

White is reported to have been spending time in Los Angeles during the rehab process and it was the Rams’ team doctor, Neal Attrache who performed his ACL repair surgery.

The news of White’s plans to sign with Los Angeles comes just days after Bills general manager Brandon Beane said that, despite cutting the corner back earlier this month, he hadn’t closed the door on bring him back to Buffalo.

Despite Beane’s statement, along with that emotional response (embedded in the tweet above) from head coach Sean McDermott when asked about his relationship with the cornerback, it looks like White will be playing on the west coast in 2024.
