With the 2018 NFL Draft less than a week away, and thus lots of new additions coming to the Cleveland Browns’ roster, the Browns made two subtractions on Friday, releasing a pair of defensive backs according to a team statement.

The Browns terminated the contract of defensive back Corey White and also released defensive back Reggie Porter with a failed physical designation.

White signed with the Browns in January after not playing a snap in 2017. Over the previous six seasons, he played for the New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals and Buffalo Bills; he appeared in 66 games, notching 161 combined tackles, 22 passes defensed and six interceptions.

Porter was signed off of the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad last year and was active in three games before tearing his Achilles and being placed on injured reserve in November.
