Jones is showing no lingering issues with his surgically repaired foot, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure. Jones is moving well, accelerating and stopping with ease. While the Falcons are limiting his reps in camp, that is reportedly a cautionary measure, and not because of any setbacks in Jones' recovery. Jones missed 11 games in 2013 with a broken foot. FANTASY ANALYSIS: This is excellent news for would-be Jones owners, and also for those interested in Falcons WR Roddy White. While Jones' health will continue to be a concern, the fact that he looks 100% is extremely encouraging. White, for...

On Roddy White and aging receivers

Now signed to a big extension, Roddy White is a Falcon for life. What can we expect from him the rest of the way? It goes without saying that Roddy White has been one of the NFL's premier talents over the last decade. He is, by most accounts, the best wide receiver in Falcons history, and the extension he signed last week virtually guarantees he'll one day join the Ring of Honor. But Roddy turns 33 in November, and naturally, fans have begun to wonder how much he has left in the tank. White's recent injuries -- namely the ankle and hamstring ailments suffered in 2013 -- have only amplified...

What Should The Falcons Do With The Rest Of Their Cap Space?

Given the limited options available, what should the Falcons spend their money on? Depending on the structure of Roddy White's contract—and if that's known by the time you read this, forgive me, I've been on the road—the Falcons could still have several million in cap space left. They have a few options in terms of how to use that space.  Leave it mostly untouched and roll it into the 2014 season, using it to make signings as needed, and then roll the leftover into 2015. Chase a couple of veterans cut from other teams. Give more players extensions, given that they have a ton of free...

Finding middle ground on Dez Bryant deal

OXNARD, Calif. – It seems almost daily that pass-catchers are cashing in on new deals.

Earlier in the week, Roddy White signed a four-year extension worth $30 million that included $18 million guaranteed. Last week, the New Orleans Saints signed tight end Jimmy Graham to a four-year, $40 million deal with $21 million guaranteed.

Falcons waive Darius Johnson

Falcons waive Darius Johnson

In a move that will come as a surprise to many, the Falcons have decided to part ways with one of their young receivers. The Falcons have waived wide receiver Darius Johnson. No details are currently available on the reason for this move, which will surely come as a surprise to many. Johnson had an opportunity to contribute on the field last season with injuries to Roddy White and Julio Jones depleting the receiving corps. With Drew Davis on the PUP list following foot surgery, this move is pretty unexpected. It certainly makes the competition during training camp for depth at wide...

Falcons WR Roddy White gets contract extension

White and the Falcons have agreed to a three-year extension that will tie the veteran wideout to the team through the 2017 season. Reports had emerged previously that White wanted a new deal before the start of training camp, and now that has been accomplished. White caught 63 balls for 711 yards and three touchdowns last year, his lowest totals since 2006. White will look to improve on those numbers as Falcons WR Julio Jones returns to the team this season following a foot injury that kept him out most of last year. FANTASY ANALYSIS: With HBO's "Hard Knocks" coming to town for training...

With Extension, Roddy White Could Retire As A Falcon Great

Roddy White already owns most franchise marks for receiving. The Falcons have had a handful of great receivers in the franchise's long and winding history, and you can likely name them quickly. There was Alfred Jenkins, Andre Rison and Terrance Mathis at the top of the list. You can add Roddy White, and frankly he has surpassed them all. No one would have anticipated this for Roddy after his first two seasons in the NFL, a time when Roddy admitted he struggled with off-the-field issues and maturity, hardly a rare affliction for a young receiver. There was a dedicated coaching staff and...

Roddy White and Atlanta Falcons Agree to New Deal

Roddy White and Atlanta Falcons Agree to New Deal

When healthy, the Atlanta Falcons have one of the NFL's best passing offenses, highlights by one of the best 1-2 punches at wide receiver. Roddy White and Julius Jones are a devastating combination when they're both healthy, but injuries to both of the last year led to down seasons fro them and the Falcons. Despite being set to turn 33 in November, Atlanta still believes in White's abilities, and they've just put their money where their mouth is by singing him to a new deal. With camp about to begin, Falcons are giving WR Roddy White a 4-year extension that ties him to ATL for next five...

Falcons Training Camp Preview: Wide Receiver

What does the wide receiver corps look like as we head into training camp? While Matt Ryan managed to post decent stats last season despite a depleted receiving corps, there's no denying that the team sorely missed the production of Roddy White, who was hindered by injury much of the season, and Julio Jones, who was placed on IR early in the 2013 season. How is this unit shaping up as we head into training camp? The Players Roddy White was held out of minicamp as a precaution, but hopefully the veteran receiver will be fully healthy heading into the season. He was hobbled by a lingering...
