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

Roddy White was arrested early Tuesday morning on a failure to appear warrant.

White was booked in the Gwinnett County Jail just before 4:30 AM on Tuesday and was released 90 minutes later on $168 bond. The 32-year-old allegedly failed to appear in court on a warrant stemming from a citation for tinted windows. White shouldn't face any league discipline, and this is the last we'll hear of it.

Roddy White said he's working with the Falcons on a contract extension.

White is entering the final season of the six-year, $48 million deal he signed in 2009. Extension negotiations are going to be tricky because he's 32 years old and coming off a year that was marred by nagging hamstring and ankle injuries. But his camp can point to the final five games in which he averaged 8.6 catches for 100.4 yards with two touchdowns. "I do want to stay here the rest of my career. ... We're working to try to get something done. They want me to be here, I want to be here, so let's make it happen."

Roddy White said he wants to play 3-4 more seasons.

The 32-year-old White is headed into the final year of a six-year, $48 million pact he signed back in 2009. Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff has hinted that the two sides could hammer out an extension that would allow White to end his career in Atlanta and also lower his cap hit for 2014. White gained leverage in those talks with his play down the stretch as he averaged 8.6 catches for 100.4 yards with two touchdowns in the final five games.

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said at his season-ending presser Monday that the club is interested in signing Roddy White to a contract extension.

Dimitroff said he's "looking forward" to hammering out a deal. White is under contract for $5 million in 2014, but the Falcons could lower his cap number by extending him. White turned 32 in November. Over the final five weeks of the 2013 season, White averaged 8.6 catches for 100.4 yards per game.

Roddy White caught eight passes for 91 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Panthers.

It was too late for most owners, but in December we finally got to see what a healthy Roddy White can do. Battling a high ankle sprain and hamstring pull throughout the first two months, Roddy failed to top four catches for 45 yards in his first eight games. But over the final five games, he averaged 8.6 catches for 100.4 yards with two touchdowns. The performance proves that the 32-year-old White still has plenty of juice left in the legs. He'll be a WR2 candidate in 2014 fantasy drafts.

Roddy White caught 12 passes for 141 yards and one touchdown in Atlanta's 34-24, Week 16 loss to the 49ers on Monday night.

It was easily White's best game in what proved to be a lost season for him. He shredded a San Francisco pass defense that entered the night surrendering the fourth-fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. It's been quite the ride for White's fantasy owners. Most of you likely either missed the playoffs or got there without White and didn't use him in a tough matchup. However, those of you that chose to play White in your fantasy title game are probably smiling. White's night started slow, but he turned it on in the second half. He ran right by Tramaine Brock and Eric Reid for his 39-yard touchdown. White also had a number of big catches on third and fourth downs. There's no denying he has some of the strongest mitts in the league. White gets the Panthers in Week 17.

Roddy White caught five passes for 53 yards in Week 15 against the Redskins.

White battled a knee issue in practice this past week, but it didn't appear to be a problem for him. White was targeted seven times on the day and was featured early on before going mostly silent in the second half. It would have been nice to see him have a bigger day against Washington's leaky pass defense. White will get a tough draw next week against the 49ers on the road.

Roddy White (knee) is active for Week 15 against the Redskins.

White's knee injury was never a concern for his Week 15 status. With 18 catches over his past two games, White will be a WR2 against the Redskins' sieve-like pass defense.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 11:51:00 AM

Roddy White (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 15.

As he typically does, White is fully expected to play through the "Q" tag after practicing at least on a limited basis each day this week. Rotoworld's Pat Daugherty has Roddy ranked as the No. 16 overall fantasy receiver for Week 15. RotoPat's full position rankings are accessible at the link below.

Roddy White (knee) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

White's "injury" isn't believed to be a major issue. Even if he gets a "questionable" tag on Friday's injury report, he should be ready to rock as a WR2 against the Redskins.
Thu, Dec 12, 2013 03:41:00 PM

Roddy White (knee) was limited in Wednesday practice.

White suffered a knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Packers, but it doesn't sound like a major concern. He'll be on the WR2 radar in a plus matchup against the Redskins in Week 15.
Wed, Dec 11, 2013 04:01:00 PM

Roddy White caught eight balls for 73 yards in the Falcons' Week 14 loss to the Packers.

He now has 18 catches over his last two games. White isn't playing in an explosive manner or creating gobs of separation, but he's carving up defenses underneath and moving the chains. He'll be on the WR2 radar for the first time all season when the Falcons face the lifeless Redskins defense in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 04:23:00 PM

Roddy White played on 85-of-88 snaps in last week's win over the Bills.

White claims his ankle still isn't quite 100 percent, but tangible evidence from Week 13 suggests otherwise. He played on nearly every snap, recording a 10/143/0 line on 14 targets while consistently cutting sharply out of breaks. White is not listed on the injury report this week and will be a WR3 with upside against the Packers Sunday.
Thu, Dec 5, 2013 10:18:00 AM

Speaking after Sunday's win, Roddy White said that his ankle is still an issue, but that he's a "football player."

White did not suffer a setback, but let it be known he's still not 100 percent despite his 10-catch, 143-yard performance. "So I'm going to get myself out there and fight with my teammates every week, if I can," White said. "If I feel like I can go out there and be productive, I'm going to go out there and help my team win." Despite White's comments, he looked by far the best he has all year, and can be trusted as a high-upside WR3 for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
