Roddy White Says He Doesn’t Want to Leave The Falcons

Wide receiver Roddy White’s future in Atlanta is uncertain after a down year where he had 506 receiving yards and one touchdown.

White is unsure of what his future holds, Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

“No, I haven’t spoken to anybody,” the veteran wide receiver said when asked if he had been given any indication from the Falcons as to whether he’s a part of their future. “I haven’t been given clarity about anything.”

White reiterated that he wants to remain a Falcon and considers Atlanta home, adding, “It would be a tragedy if I had to leave.”

“Do I wish I could be a more significant part of the offense? Absolutely,” White said. “But that’s not what they wanted me to do and you have to enjoy and embrace the role you have.”

White said he recently ran a 5K race “to get ready for anything that happens.” His immediate plans are to vacation in Belize next week and he expects to hear from the Falcons soon, perhaps around the time of NFL free agency (which begins March 9). He also will have his annual youth football camp in Charleston, S.C., in June before heading to training camp … somewhere.

“I’d bet every dollar I had that I’m going to be a Falcon,” White said.

Sometimes he says things for effect.

“Yeah,” he acknowledged, laughing. “But that’s how much I want to stay here.”
