Falcons WR Roddy White still waiting for contract extension


Falcons WR Roddy White still waiting for contract extension

ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure reports that WR White, who is in the final year of his deal with the Falcons, had expected to have a contract extension in place following the NFL draft this spring. According to McClure, the 32-year-old White wants to play three or four more seasons, and retire with the Falcons, with whom he's spent his entire NFL career. The Falcons report to training camp July 25, and will be the subject of the 2014 edition of HBO's "Hard Knocks."

Fantasy Analysis:

While there's been no mention of a holdout from White, expect this situation to be heavily dramatized if the Falcons don't offer their veteran WR a contract extension before camp. "Hard Knocks" has a way of turning small training camp drama into big headlines. White's statistical output should improve somewhat over last year, with standout WR Julio Jones @juliojones_11 returning to the Falcons active roster. White has taken advantage of increased opportunity over the past few seasons, as defenses have increasingly keyed on Jones.
