Cowboys Waiving LB Chris Covington & CB D.J. White

The Cowboys announced Thursday they are waiving LB Chris Covington and CB D.J. White, per Michael Gehlken.


The moves are to clear space for CB Daryl Worley, who announced he was signing with Dallas yesterday, and LS Joe Fortunato

Covington, 24, is a former sixth-round pick of the Cowboys in the 2018 NFL Draft out of Indiana. He was entering the second year of his a four-year, $2.6 million rookie contract when Dallas cut him coming out of last preseason. 

Since then, Covington has been on and off the Cowboys’ practice squad. 

In 2019, Covington appeared in three games for the Cowboys and recorded two tackles and no other statistics. 

White, 26, is a former sixth-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2016. He was in the second year of his four-year, $2.52 million contract when the Chiefs waived him during the 2017 season. 

White wound up being claimed off of waivers by the Colts, but was once again cut loose at the start of the 2018 season. He had a brief stint on the Colts’ practice squad before joining the Redskins last summer.

He was waived coming out of the preseason and has spent time with the Eagles and Falcons before landing on Dallas’ practice squad.

For his career, White has appeared in 13 games for the Colts and Chiefs and recorded 14 tackles, one interception and three pass defenses.
