The New York Giants are set to host former Buffalo Bills All-Pro cornerback Tre'Davious White later this week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

White, a seven-year veteran, was a first-round pick by the Bills in 2017, the 27th overall pick in that draft. A two-time Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro (2019), the 5-11, 192-pound cornerback has dealt with some injury-shortened seasons of late, most recently this past season when he was limited to only four games thanks to a torn Achilles tendon suffered against the Miami Dolphins.

White, who was named to the PFWA All-Rookie Team in 2017 and to the second-team All-Pro in 2020, has logged 311 tackles, five forced fumbles and fumble recoveries, 68 pass deflections, and 18 interceptions over his career. Earlier this month, he was a cap casualty and could be looking to join a team on a one-year "prove it" deal to re-set his career following last year's injury.

Earlier this month, the Giants met with Darious Williams, who had been a cap cut by the Jaguars, about potentially filling their CB2 role, which became vacant when Adoree Jackson's contract was voided. Williams ended up signing with the Los Angeles Rams.

The Giants, meanwhile, currently have Nick McCloud, who last year was their best special teams player, as their projected CB2, a projection they would no doubt like to have adjusted.

The Giants also have youngsters Cor'Dale Flott and Tre Hawkins III to compete for the role, but it's believed they'd like to add a veteran to allocate their six available draft resources elsewhere.

In other Giants-Buffalo news, Pete Guelli, the Giants Chief Business Officer for the last five years, is leaving the organization to become the Chief Operating Officer of the Bills and Buffalo Sabres, both franchises owned by Terry and Kim Pagula.
