Watch Leonard Hankerson, the man who would be the Falcons' #2 receiver

Is Hank Time here? Leading up to every game, we try to give you a sense of who is worth watching, who might stand out, and what matchups figure to be central to the outcome. I'd like to dial that back a bit and focus on a man whose performance in this upcoming game against the Dolphins is more central to his fortunes than the team's. That man is Leonard Hankerson, who finds himself in prime position to be the Falcons' second-leading receiver. That would have been a bold statement just a month ago, but with Roddy White suffering from a series of minor injuries and undergoing elbow surgery,...

Report: Teammates anticipate speedy recovery for Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White

Fact: Roddy White gets Lola whatever she wants There's not much that scares Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White. He pretty much embodies NFL toughness. From his high school wrestling days to present day, it's been his calling card. You need someone to rough up opposing DBs? Roddy is your guy. You need someone to take a nasty hit over the middle? Roddy is your guy. You need someone to stand guard at your front door all night? Well, Roddy probably isn't your guy, but wouldn't it be cool if he were? So as we discuss Roddy's recent surgery, it's important to keep in mind one simple fact:...

Falcons waive 2014 fifth round pick Marquis Spruill, sign WR John Harris

It's a sad ending for a player who looked like he might have an impact in 2015. The Falcons have parted ways with last year's fifth round pick. Falcons waive LB Marquis Spruill, who missed last season with ACL tear — vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) August 24, 2015 Falcons sign WR Josh Harris. Another body with Roddy White out following minor elbow surgery — vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) August 24, 2015 Though I was rooting hard for him, even I had to admit that Spruill's lack of snaps in the second preseason game didn't bode well. Spruill was returning from a deeply unfortunate...

Roddy White injury: Receiver to have "minor" elbow surgery, set to return for regular season

It's not good news, but it could be worse news. We're a little late on this one, but in case you hadn't heard, Roddy White is due for surgery. White has been experiencing swelling due to loose particles in his elbow. The injury flared up following Thursday's light practice. He did not play in Friday night's 30-22 preseason loss to the New York Jets. Quinn said he believes White's surgery will be arthroscopic. An arthroscopic debridement is the normal procedure associated with White's type of injury. Such a procedure typically involves a maximum four-week recovery period. We all...

Falcons Uniform History: #84 belongs to 'Rowdy' Roddy White

The long-time Atlanta Falcon holds the franchise's major receiving records. Was there ever any doubt? The best Falcon to wear #84 is Roddy White. Through 10 seasons in the league, White has compiled 765 receptions for 10,357 yards and 62 touchdowns — all franchise records — and he'll look to increase those numbers this year. What's remarkable about White's career numbers is the fact he had such a slow start. When the Falcons drafted him in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft out of UAB, the expectation was that he'd be a deep threat to go with cannon-armed quarterback Michael...

Roddy White: Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan just needs a running game

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White will always speak his mind. He will tell his own mother her meatloaf sucks if it in fact sucks. But he's also fiercely loyal, and if you're playing professional football, there aren't many guys you'd rather go to battle with. Matt Ryan and Roddy have been together for a long time now. They've experienced highs, lows, and Levine Toilolo at right tackle. In short, there's no shortage of respect and admiration between these two. Per ESPN's Vaughn McClure, Roddy is excited about Ryan this season. "This offense, basically everything is played off the...

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...
