Roddy White's knee may be drained this season, but he isn't worried

Arguably the best receiver in Falcons history will deal with the knee all season, but doesn't expect to miss time. There's going to be plenty of debate about Roddy White's role in the offense in the weeks and months ahead, but one thing is not up for debate: Roddy White is a tough dude who is also awesome. Vaughn McClure chatted with Roddy about his knee, which was drained last offseason, drained again in June, and may well be drained again during the season. White's not interested in having surgery, he tells McClure, and draining the knee is the fastest way to keep it functioning without...

Projecting new roles for Roddy White and young Falcons receivers

Only a few years ago, the Falcons were fielding 1A and 1B wide receivers. That time looks to be over, but that should give the Falcons more options. After completing an impressive rookie season, Julio Jones looked to be the perfect bookend to Roddy White. The duo was thought to be one of the best wide receiver tandems in the NFL. In 2012, that was proven. The two had over 2,500 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns combined. Pro Football Focus agreed, ranking Roddy as the 7th best wide receiver in the NFL. Cut to 2015, and Roddy has dealt with two down, injury-plagued, seasons. He dropped the...

Roddy White wants the Falcons to pay Julio Jones

Per ESPN's Josina Anderson, Roddy White is ready for the Falcons to sign Julio Jones to a new deal. Add Roddy White to the long list of people who just wish the Falcons would lock up Julio Jones already. White told ESPN's Josina Anderson that if he were Thomas Dimitroff, he would absolutely get Julio signed to a new deal as soon as possible. #Falcons WR Roddy White 2 me: "If I was the GM I would get a deal done with Julio (Jones) now. I want to make sure he’s paid. That’s my guy" — Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) July 17, 2015 It's no secret that White and Jones are friends,...

Falcons who may break franchise records in 2015

There are three marks that could be broken by Falcons players this season. Every year, it seems a few Falcons have the opportunity to break some franchise records and achieve new milestones. This year is no exception, even if the milestones aren't quite as eye-popping. This list isn't as robust as it has been in years past, because the team has a very young backfield, Matt Ryan already broke every franchise passing mark (except one, which we'll get to below) and Roddy White holds all the receiving marks. What's left is primarily special teams-related, but Matt Bryant has a chance to hit a...

Report: Brian Finneran's influence on the team is still present today

Fact: Roddy White trims his nose hair with a weed whacker Atlanta Falcons alumnus Brian Finneran is best described as scrappy and old school. He wasn't the most dynamic wide receiver during his time in the NFL, but he got the job done. What he lacked in straight line speed, he made for with smart route running, length, and sheer determination. If you just recently found your way to Falcons fanhood, you probably don't fully appreciate Finneran. He joined the Falcons in 2000 after a brief stint in the now defunct NFL Europe. He was with the team until 2010, amassing 3,000 receiving yards,...
