FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- After holding out for the first week of training camp, receiver Roddy White has agreed to a contract extension with the Atlanta Falcons.
The team announced the deal Saturday.
White set a franchise record with 1,382 receiving yards last season, ranking fourth in the NFL, and earned his first Pro Bowl appearance. He became the first Falcons receiver in a decade to post back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and the first in club history to tally back-to-back 1,200-yard seasons.
Getting White in camp was a top priority for the Matt Ryan-led offense, especially after third receiver Harry Douglas was lost for the season after tearing up his knee during a routine drill.
