Falcons give Roddy White a contract extension
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Falcons announced a four-year extension for receiver Roddy White on Thursday. It should keep him with the team for the rest of his career. 

White, 32, had a down year in 2013 because he tried to play through a high-ankle sprain. But he finished the season strong with 43 catches for 502 yards and two scores in his last five games. He's expected to keep up that kind of production this season as part of the team's one-two punch at receiver alongside Julio Jones.

The Falcons placed defensive tackle Corey Peters and safety Zeke Motta on the PUP list to start camp. Peters is rehabbing from a torn Achilles he suffered last December, while Motta has a neck injury that could jeopardize his career, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"Corey will be rehabbing on the side to start training camp," coach Mike Smith said. "But we have been very optimistic about his work in the offseason with our guys in athletic performance, with the trainers and the doctors. As soon as they clear him, we’ll get him back and on the field. ... He’s has done a very good job with his rehabilitation."
