Falcons sign DB Ryan White, bring roster back to 90

The team signs a player named White, and everyone reads the first name wrong.

The Atlanta Falcons entered training camp today with only 89 on the roster. That didn’t last long, as the team announced that they have signed DB Ryan White from Auburn University.

At 5’10” and a little under 200 pounds, White is on the smaller side of what Quinn prefers in his defensive backs. White appears to have ok speed, though he’s not going to be catching Julio Jones from behind in camp.

Obviously, White has an uphill battle and is a long shot for making the roster. He’ll probably get the next few practices to prove his worth, otherwise his time with the Falcons will probably be pretty short.

Your thoughts on the signing?
