White: Two, Three More Playing Years is Goal

Wide receiver Roddy White turned 33 years old near the middle portion of the Falcons' 2014 season, a year when he became the franchise's all-time receiving leader.

Fans can expect him to attempt to put that record out of reach for his successors, as he told 680 The Fan on Wednesday morning that he's got several years left in him.

"Actually, I feel pretty good. Throughout the end of the season, I felt like my legs were under me," White said. "I wish I hadn't missed two games. That was my goal this year, to get through the year completely healthy, but that didn't happen for me. I feel I could play two or three more years, if I could just stay healthy through the whole course of a season and not miss any games."

White's former teammate, Brian Finneran, is a host on 680 and said that he and White had a bet when White was younger that White wouldn't make it 10 years in the league. The dynamic wideout just celebrated his 10th year in the league and told Finneran, who played 10 seasons, that he's out to pass his mark.

White appears well on his way after putting together a strong season with 80 catches for 921 yards and seven touchdowns despite missing those two games due to injury.

"I feel like I'm playing at a really good level," White said. "Any time you can go out there and catch 80 passes in the NFL, you're doing pretty good. I feel like I can play another two or three years and be successful. Hopefully, I can get past Brian. My goal is to get past Brian for years in the NFL."
