Since being drafted in the first round in 2005, WR Roddy White has been a crucial part of the offense for the Atlanta Falcons. With a new extension, his legacy will continue with the team he began with.
One day after being held out of practice due to a knee injury, suffered in Sunday's Week 1 win, Falcons WR Roddy White was in great spirits when meeting with reporters Thursday.
"I'm feeling real good," White said. "I'm feeling really good. It (the injury) did kind of scare me, but after that, my adrenaline started pumping and I got back in there, caught some passes and on Monday, I felt a little sore, but now, I'm ready to go."
Great news for the Falcons and their fans, as White later returned to practice Thursday, days away from the first road test of the regular season, facing the 1-0 Cincinnati Bengals.
Footnote: White is one TD reception shy of tying the Falcons franchise record of career-TD receptions (57), currently held by former Falcons WR Terance Mathis.
