Roddy White: Whatever happens after Sunday happens

Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has seen his role in the team’s offense shrink during Kyle Shanahan’s first year as the team’s offensive coordinator and that development led him to talk more than once during the season about his desire to be more involved in the proceedings.

On Wednesday, White said that his misgivings about the offense haven’t changed his hopes for the future. White has two years left on his contract with the Falcons and said he hopes to play in the team’s new stadium when it opens in 2017 and remain in Atlanta for his entire career. He acknowledges that there are no guarantees about what will happen in the offseason, though.

“I have no idea how next year is going to be,” White said, via the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “I’m just going to take it in and try to finish as strong as possible and get myself ready to go for next year. Whatever happens after that, happens.”

White has been targeted 66 times this year, the least of any season since 2006 and he still needs 10 yards to match his production during that season. The 34-year-old is due to make $4.25 million in salary and bonus next season while counting for just over $6 million against the cap.

  1. Roddy has played his entire career about 4 hours from his hometown of Charleston, SC. There’s another WR needy team in their division about 3 hours from there. Sign with the Panthers, live closer to home, and have a chance to stick it to the Falcons twice a year.

  2. Quick spoiler on what will happen Roddy:

    You’ll get cut in a few months, won’t find a new team until just before TC, then sign a 1 yr deal at the veteran minimum, get cut again around sept 1, say on various media that you can still play but you ll never catch a ball again.
