White Six TDs Away From Franchise Mark

Posted May 27, 2013

Roddy White has already established himself as the best Falcons wide receiver in franchise history, and in 2013, it looks like he's going to make at least one more franchise record his own.

Matt Ryan isn't the only Falcon coming up on franchise records in 2013. Four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Roddy White also is approaching a significant franchise milestone in the coming season.

White needs just six touchdown catches to surpass Terance Mathis' Falcons franchise mark of 57 touchdown receptions. White currently sits at 52 and after averaging eight touchdowns per season for the last five years, it's a number he's capable of achieving this year.

Last season, White snapped two of Mathis' franchise records, setting the new Falcons records for receiving yards in a career with 8,725 and receptions in a career with 622.

White also holds franchise records in most receiving yards in a season (1,389), most receiving yards in a game (210), most receptions in a single season (115), most 100-yard receiving games in a career (35), most 100-yard receiving games in a season (7) and most consecutive 1,000-yard seasons (6).
