Roddy White’s 2012 season was his worst since his second season in 2006. His season was very representative of the season the Falcons had; uncharacteristically unproductive. White isn’t ready to call it career though suggesting last season was a fluke more than anything.
“How many more years? I think three or four,” White said, via Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. “I don’t want to be an ironman like Tony [Gonzalez]. He was blessed to go through his stint in the NFL because 17 seasons is a long time to play football, man. I was thinking if I could just get 10, I’ll be all right.”
Next season will be White’s 10th and General Manager Thomas Dimitroff sounds open to the idea of keeping White around beyond that.
“Roddy’s made it very clear that he wants to be back here for the duration of his career and he’s obviously been a beyond-fine football player for us,” Dimitroff said. “So we’re hoping that he will be able to do that.”-ProFootballTalk.com
White is entering a contract year in 2014 so that season will be huge in terms of the compensation he will expect to receive in his final contract.
