The Falcons are meeting with the agents for Roddy White on Saturday to discuss a possible contract extension.
White is owed $6.34 million in the final year of his contract, so the Falcons are looking to sign him to an extension that would allow him to end his career in Atlanta and also lower his cap hit. Coming off an injury-marred 2013 and entering his age-33 season, he could be willing to accept a team-friendly deal. White had 63 catches, 711 yards, and three touchdowns in 13 games this past season, on the strength of a red-hot finish. Feb 22 - 2:36 PM

Coach Mike Smith said Julio Jones (foot) and Roddy White (ankle) are currently working out at the Falcons facility.

Both starting wideouts are expected to be ready for the spring, but Smith said he just wants them healthy in September. It shouldn't be an issue. Although Jones has fractured his foot in the same place twice, the Falcons have expressed no long-term concerns.

Drew Davis played on 71-of-83 snaps in Sunday's loss at Arizona.

Over the last two weeks, Davis has played 87.0 percent of the snaps. It led to a breakout Week 8 performance that included five catches for 77 yards and a touchdown. The problem, of course, is that Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) could be back as soon as this week. At that point, Davis won't be getting enough playing time to be worth a start.

Julio Jones (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Jones is locked in as a top-three fantasy wide receiver play against the Dolphins this week. Look for him to be upgraded to full participation later in the week. Roddy White didn't practice Wednesday, and he's going to be a game-time decision for the third week in a row as he battles that high-ankle sprain. Continue to steer clear of White in fantasy. He's a high-risk WR3 play.

Julio Jones (knee) and Roddy White (ankle) are both active for Sunday's Week 2 game against the Rams.

As expected. Both Jones and White were listed as questionable after getting in limited practices on Friday. Each player sat out on Wednesday and Thursday. Jones is safe to keep in fantasy lineups, but White is a very risky play as a WR3. He was merely a decoy last week. White warned fantasy owners earlier in the week. "If I don't practice, then don't start me," White tweeted. "It's a red flag."

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Julio Jones (knee) and Roddy White (ankle) are both expected to play versus the Rams on Sunday.

Both players are listed as questionable after getting in limited practices Friday. Coach Mike Smith had already confirmed White would suit up, leaving Jones as the lone question mark. Neither player will be at 100 percent. We'd knock Jones down to a WR2, while White is a dicey WR3 play after barely practicing. "As far as fantasy. If I don't practice, then don't start me," White tweeted earlier in the week. "It's a red flag."

New Browns WR Davone Bess is second in the NFL in third-down receptions over the last five seasons.

Bess' 130 third-down catches for the Dolphins since 2008 trails only Roddy White's 146. It's a role he can fill for the Browns as well, who struggled to move the chains with stone-handed Greg Little and deep burner Josh Gordon last season. They ranked 30th in the league in third-down efficiency at just 30.7 percent.
