Falcons WR White Looking for a Big Extension

One of the big three (Matt Ryan and Michael Turner being the other two) of the Falcons offense wants to get a contract extension. Wide out Roddy White is turning into a top 10 wide out in the league, and as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, White is looking for a deal in the range of the Packers Greg Jennings:

Falcons WR Roddy White will be looking to become the second player in team history to post three straight 1,000-yard seasons. He would join Andre Rison (1992 to 1994) in the exclusive club. There’s that small matter of White’s contract extension that could get in the way. White’s camp had to like the three-year, $27 million extension that Greg Jennings signed with Green Bay recently).

White is a playmaker, and the Falcons would be smart to work on a deal now before his price is driven up by another great season in which he becomes even better and helps the Falcons continue to become a force in the NFC.
