They may as well have just traded for Joslin for depth and kept White since he's not a huge liability.
The general consensus on the radio after the game is that Rutherford is looking for something on the offense. White is solid, but fairly expensive I think the team felt, which makes me wonder why he was brought in originally.
White for a good defensive prospect and a 2nd round pick in next year's draft is pretty fair I think.
