Latest On Rams CB Tre’Davious White

Tre’Davious White saw his time with the Bills come to an end this offseason, setting up an eventual one-year flier he agreed to with the Rams. The former All-Pro corner’s health will be worth monitoring as the rest of the 2024 offseason unfolds.

White – who was limited to 10 games across the past two seasons – suffered an Achilles tear in October, adding to his list of major injuries. That led to his Buffalo release and obviously hurt his market value. The 29-year-old signed a one-year Rams deal worth a base value of $4.25MM.

Spring workouts provided Los Angeles with the opportunity to evaluate White’s progress in terms of recovery. He spent most of OTAs working with trainers off to the side of practices, although he was able to take part in a walkthrough during the final week of the voluntary workouts. Whether or not the two-time Pro Bowler will be available to practice in pads during training camp remains to be seen.

“He’s making good progress,” head coach Sean McVay recently said of White (via the team’s website). “He was able to partake in the walkthrough. It’s obviously a significant injury that he’s overcome. He’s gotten a lot of good stuff done on the side… As far as what his actual process will be in training camp, we’ll see where he’s at. He does such a great job, understands his body, and so I don’t think we want to pigeonhole ourselves into one approach.”

The Rams brought back Darious Williams in free agency, and his $7.5MM-per-year pact is the team’s most lucrative one at the cornerback spot. Los Angeles also has the likes of Cobie Durant, Derion Kendrick and Tre Tomlinson in the fold as starting options. If healthy, White should be able to hold down a first-team role on his new team, though, something which would have financial implications for him. The LSU alum’s 2024 earnings will increase to $8.5MM if he logs a defensive snap share of 60% or higher.

Of course, a strong showing in Los Angeles would set White up for either a lucrative re-signing or a market of outside suitors in free agency next offseason. For now, attention will remain on his Week 1 availability and how he performs when he is on the field,
