Falcons All-Time Receiver Let Go After 11 Years in Atlanta. Could be headed for Titans or Bucs…

Roddy White was one of the most explosive receivers in the league until injuries and a freakish athlete, Julio Jones, put a damper on a brilliant career. 

At 34 years old, and now a free agent White feels he still has a couple of years left in the tank.
I’m intrigued to find out which team will give him a chance.

His numbers, 43 receptions, 506 yards, and 1 touchdown, were down quite a bit from 2014 when he had 80 receptions, for 921 yards, and 7 TDs, in just 14 games.

His touchdown numbers have been in decline for quite some time, but that seems more a product of quarterback, Matt Ryan, preferring other receivers, and the Falcons penchant for punching in the ball on the ground.

Even after an off year, White should be able to provide vitality for a team in need of a big play threat, much like Brandon Marshall did for the Jets following an off year with the Bears. 

When asked where he would like to go, White simply stated that he’s “A Southern guy.”
Two of White’s former offensive coordinators, Dirk Koetter and Mike Mularkey are now head coaches of southern teams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans respectively.
