Falcons give Roddy White a contract extension
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8:26 am ET) The Falcons announced a four-year extension for receiver Roddy White on Thursday. It should keep him with the team for the rest of his career. 

White, 32, had a down year in 2013 because he tried to play through a high-ankle sprain. But he finished the season strong with 43 catches for 502 yards and two scores in his last five games. He's expected to keep up that kind of production this season as part of the team's one-two punch at receiver alongside Julio Jones.
