Falcons WR Roddy White doesn't want to be an 'ironman' like Tony Gonzalez

Roddy White @roddywhiteTV is currently working on a contract extension in Atlanta, but has made it clear he doesn't want to play 17 seasons like his now former teammate Tony Gonzalez @TonyGonzalez88.. White still has one more year on his deal, but could provide useful cap relief if he is extended this offseason.

White told ESPN.com , "How many more years? I think three or four,'' he said. "I don't want to be an ironman like Tony [Gonzalez]. He was blessed to go through his stint in the NFL because 17 seasons is a long time to play football, man. I was thinking if I could just get 10, I'll be all right.''

Fantasy Analysis:

In many ways Roddy White had been an 'ironman' coming into this season. He had never missed a game in his pro career, and whether he was the number one target or riding shotgun next to Julio Jones @juliojones_11, White has always produced.

This was a tough year for White and a terrible year for the Falcons. White was hurt much of the season, and when he came back after several weeks off, he and Gonzalez saw constant double teams in Jones' absence. Still, White finished the season in much better shape than he started it, with 502 yards in his last 5 games. With a healthy Jones on the other side and an offseason to heal, expect White to rebound to a WR2 in 2014.
