Atlanta Falcons: 5 players that still need to get cut
2) Roddy White
Here we go again. Roddy White has spent 11 years with the Atlanta Falcons, just like Babineaux and has set several franchise records in his time. While all of that is fantastic, it’s time to part way with White. He’s well over the hill and doesn’t have a lot to offer anymore.
To think that White will put up way better numbers in 2016 isn’t fair to say. He had very close to career lows in 2015 and will likely post the same, if not worse numbers in 2016. His speed has completely deteriorated and his hands have never been very reliable. It’s to the point where White can only catch passes with corners draped all over him and that’s an issue.
It’s looking more and more like White will still be around in 2016 but hat decision will be up to head coach Dan Quinn. If Quinn feels that White has one year left in him, he will keep him around to mentor some of the young guys, but if he feels his last year to offer something was in 2015, he’s gone.
