I hate that Roddy White could wind up not getting paid


Roddy White has been one of the most unheralded receivers in recent history. A perennial 1,000 yard receiver since Matt Ryan’s drafting back in 2008, White has been one of the most productive players in the NFL for the better part of the past decade.

Last season, White tried to play through both an ankle and a hamstring injury, he was merely a shell of his former self. However, that was the first time since 2006 that White did not gain over 1,000 yards.

The Falcons are holding firm that they will not pay an over-30 big time money. He has two or three seasons left in the tank, but is that enough to justify meeting his demands? The Falcons need to be focused on resigning key players for the future. (i.e. Julio Jones)

It is no secret that White is seeking a new deal, I just cannot imagine the Falcons giving him a raise in the twilight of his career… It would not be a good football decision, and Mr. Blank is all about making smart football moves.

I hate it for Roddy because if anyone deserves one last pay day it is #84, however, it is highly unlikely this happens.

    And so goes the football business. We here time and time again that the players should stop whining because they’ll be paid their worth if they produce. Yet, we now have another example of a player who produced, didn’t complain about or chase money, but will most likely miss out on deserved pay for not doing it. Really, if you aren’t a QB, what case can be made for doing things the “right, classy” way?
