Roddy White Ends Holdout, Re-Signs
Sources told FanHouse the deal is for six years, $50 million, with $18.6 million in guaranteed money. No word on whether or not it helped, but the Falcons' receiving situation got a bit dire this past week -- as evidenced by the team's actions -- with White holding out and Harry Douglas going down with a season-ending ACL tear.
White, the Falcons' first-round pick in 2005, has grown into an elite NFL wide receiver. He amassed 83 catches, 1,202 yards and six touchdowns in 2007 with shoddy quarterbacks throwing him the ball. Last season, with solid rookie Ryan throwing to him, his numbers went up to 88 catches, 1,382 yards and seven TDs.
White is 27 years old and will likely report to camp immediately.
