Four more years for Roddy White, who signed a four-year extension with the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday morning. Terms were just announced, as well.
With escalators, Roddy White's four-year extension worth $30 million. First 2 years: $18 million, reports @AdamSchefter— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) July 24, 2014
Roddy White's deal included $10 million guaranteed.— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) July 24, 2014
White's previous deal was running out after the season and it was known the two sides were discussing a new deal. The financial details of the contract have not yet been released.
The four-year extension will keep White under contract through the 2018 season when he is 37 years old.
The length of the contract combined with White's age -- he's 32 now -- make it a strong possibility that he is a Falcon for life and one of the best players in franchise history.
White isn't overly reliant on speed, which means he could play at a high level for the life of the contract, too.— The Falcoholic (@TheFalcoholic) July 24, 2014
White finished the 2013 season with over 500 receiving yards in the final five games so the Falcons are hoping he can continue that momentum into 2014.
