White's Future Still To Be Determined

Posted Feb 24, 2016

Wide receiver Roddy White was a big topic of conversation at the Combine on Wednesday as head coach Dan Quinn addressed questions about the longtime Falcon's future

One of the biggest questions on the minds of reporters and fans alike as Falcons head coach Dan Quinn took to the podium for his NFL Combine press conference still hasn’t gotten a concrete answer.

What is the future of longtime wide receiver Roddy White?

The answer is still uncertain. Several reports so far this offseason have alluded to the possibility of White being let go by the Falcons.

“He’s someone we certainly have such respect and admiration for as we are building this team together,” Quinn said Wednesday. “We aren’t into that decision yet and when we do, regarding the team building processes, we’ll fill you in.”

White, who has played 11 seasons in Atlanta after being drafted by the Falcons in 2005, saw his targets decrease significantly in the first year of offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan’s tenure here. After finishing 2014 with 125 targets and 80 catches while missing two games due to injury, White received 70 targets and 43 catches through 16 games in 2015.

The wait to determine whether he’ll be suiting up for the Falcons in 2016, however, continues.

“We are still in the process of everything that we are going through,” Quinn said.
