Falcons receiver Roddy White had a rough year in 2015: Among all the receivers in the NFL who started all 16 games, White had the fewest receiving yards, with just 506.
As a result, there’s almost no chance that the 34-year-old White will be back in Atlanta in 2016 unless he’s willing to take a lot less money than the $4.5 million he’s scheduled to make. But Falcons G.M. Thomas Dimitroff has not made a decision on releasing or retaining wide receiver Roddy White, the franchise’s all-time leading receiver who had a dramatic statistical drop off last season.
“Roddy is still under contract here,” Dimitroff said, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “We are in the process here of looking at, as you know, we are talking about the changes in the organization on the personnel side. “We’re obviously very focused on what is going to happen with our personnel. We are smack, dab in the middle of that. We haven’t made final decisions on anyone as far as moving on from people or moving on from people or re-doing contracts right at this moment.”
The Falcons may not have made a final decision, but there’s no way they’ll keep White on his current contract. If he’s not willing to take a pay cut, his days in Atlanta are done.
