NFL Rumors: Former Bills CB Tre’Davious White to sign 1-year, $8.5 million deal with Rams

Amid the Los Angeles Rams’ recent setbacks, they bid farewell to veteran player Aaron Donald, who announced his retirement from professional football. In another blow to the Rams’ offseason plans, reports indicate that Jonah Williams is likely to join the Minnesota Vikings.

Meanwhile, the focus has shifted to the team’s potential strategy for enhancing their secondary. According to reports, the Rams are making a strong push to acquire Tre’Davious White, a former player for the Buffalo Bills, in order to bolster their defensive lineup.

Tre’Davious White expected to sign with the Rams

Tre’Davious White has found a new home in the NFL, as he joins the Los Angeles Rams on a one-year deal worth $8.5 million, potentially rising to $10 million. It was confirmed by his agents, Kevin Conner and Robert Brown of Universal Sports Mgmt.

The unexpected move comes after White’s departure from the Buffalo Bills, where he spent the first seven seasons of his career.

His signing with the Rams marks a significant addition to their secondary roster, despite initial speculation about a possible return to Buffalo. The Rams have been actively bolstering their defensive lineup in free agency, with White being the latest major acquisition.

White’s arrival adds depth and experience to the Rams’ secondary, which was identified as a potential weak spot in their defense last season. His presence is expected to provide valuable support for star quarterback Matthew Stafford and contribute to the team’s defensive prowess.

The former All-Pro cornerback brings a wealth of experience and skill to the Rams having started all 82 games during his tenure with the Bills, per Fox Sports. Over his seven seasons in Buffalo, he amassed 18 interceptions and recovered five fumbles, establishing himself as a standout performer in the league.

Meanwhile, the upcoming NFL season will see an intriguing matchup as the Bills are scheduled to face the Rams in Los Angeles. This means that White will have the opportunity to square off against his former team for the first time since his departure earlier this month.

Tre’Davious White 2023 NFL season stats

Tre’Davious White has been a cornerstone of the Buffalo Bills’ defense, contributing significantly to their recent success despite falling short of a Super Bowl appearance. Throughout the season, the two-time Pro Bowler showcased his prowess in the Bills’ secondary, recording 12 total tackles, including 10 solo tackles and one interception.

Nevertheless, his promising season took a devastating turn when he suffered a torn Achilles in Week 4. Tragically, White’s season came to an abrupt end when he sustained the injury while covering Tyreek Hill during a crucial play in the third quarter. 

This injury adds to his recent string of setbacks, as he previously tore his left ACL in 2021. It required him to undergo a year-long rehabilitation process before returning to the field. 

As an AP All-Pro in 2019, White’s absence will undoubtedly be felt by the Bills as he is now set to bid farewell to the team.

With Tre’Davious White now donning the Rams’ colors, fans eagerly anticipate his impact on the team’s defense and his contributions to their quest for success in the upcoming season.
