That should work with the paper tape hiding the crack. Some pros do this- to metal corner bead- tape over just the outside ends, not the middle of the c.b.;

Older metal c.b.'s show cracks, often from the wood framing expanding/contracting with the seasons or HVAC changes because they are fastened through to that framing rather than just drywall, as are paper-faced metal beads, clinched-on and "speed bead";

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
