Corey White (born May 9, 1990) is an American football cornerback who plays for the Dallas Cowboys. White was born in Dunwoody, Georgia and attended Dunwoody High School. He played college football for Samford, where he caught attention from professional scouts for his strong performances in Samford's occasional games against major college opponents. He was drafted by the Saints in the 5th round of the 2012 NFL draft (162nd overall).[1] and at the NFL Scouting Combine.[2]

On July 2, 2012, White agreed to sign with the Saints on a four-year deal.

In December 2014, White was moved from cornerback to free safety after the team's shortage of safeties like Jarius Byrd and Rafael Bush were placed on injured reserve.

On March 13, 2015 the New Orleans Saints released him. [3] He was claimed by the Dallas Cowboys a few days later.
