Falcons receiver won’t be flying the coop

The Atlanta Falcons agreed to a four-year extension with receiver Roddy White on the eve of training camp on Thursday.

Terms haven’t been released.

With players reporting for camp throughout the afternoon, White was not available for comment.

Coming off a 4-12 season, Atlanta is counting on a return to full health for both White and receiver Julio Jones.

White, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, missed three games last year with ankle and hamstring injuries before finishing with 43 catches for 502 yards and two touchdowns over the last five weeks.

White holds the team records for career receptions (685) and yards receiving (9,436). But he battled ankle and hamstring injuries last season, missing three games.
