Falcons cut WR Roddy White

Atlanta Journal-Constitution - [Full Article]

Dynamic wide receiver Roddy White, the Atlanta Falcons’ all-time leading receiver, was released on Wednesday.

White, who had two years remaining on his contract, was not anticipating being released. “It would be a tragedy if I had to leave,” he told the AJC’s Jeff Schultz just last week. White, who was on his way to Belize, texted back, “I’m out of the country.”

White was set to make base salaries of $2.75 million in 2016 and $3 million in 2017. His release saves the team $2.45 million against their salary cap.

Fantasy Impact:

After a #26 finish (standard) in 2014, White's production fell off a cliff in his age 34 season. Leonard Hankerson took a good portion of his targets early in the season, and White just never got going despite staying pretty healthy the entire year. We'll be keeping an eye on the Falcons this offseason -- they are desperate for weapons to complement Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.

Falcons Beat: Roddy White should 'bounce back in a big way' in Week 3

ESPN - [Full Article]

Falcons beat writer Vaughn McClure:

Something tells me Roddy White will be targeted more than once this week. Sure, Matt Ryan found himself a couple of nice new targets in Leonard Hankerson and Jacob Tamme, but the veteran White won’t be squeezed out of the equation. White might not be productive every week, but I expect him to bounce back in a big way after seeing his streak of consecutive games with a catch end at 128. White has 16 catches for 272 yards and a touchdown in three career matchups with the Cowboys, including two 100-yard receiving games.

Fantasy Impact:

We expect White to have a good game, especially since he was largely ignored in the offense against the Giants. The presence of Leonard Hankerson means that White may not produce every week, but he posted solid WR2 numbers when healthy last season and had a good Week 1.
