NFL.com reports the Falcons are expected to hammer out a contract extension with Roddy White before training camp.

Talks were expected to heat up after the draft, but were delayed following the murder of White's half brother. Although White suffered through injury for the first time in his career last season, he finished strong. A deal should get done in relatively short order.

Extension negotiations between the Falcons and Roddy White are expected to pick up.

White, who is 32 and entering the final year of his contract, is set to count $6.35 million against the cap. An extension would both lower that number and keep the career-Falcon happy. ESPN's Vaughn McClure suggests a deal similar to the one Reggie Wayne signed in March of 2012 at age 33: Three years, $17.5 million with $7.5 million guaranteed.

The Falcons are meeting with the agents for Roddy White on Saturday to discuss a possible contract extension.

White is currently set to make $6.34 million in the final year of his contract, so the Falcons are looking to sign him to an extension that would allow him to end his career in Atlanta and also lower his cap hit. Coming off an injury-marred 2013 and entering his age 33 season, he could be willing to accept a team-friendly deal. White had 63 catches, 711 yards, and three touchdowns in 13 games this past season, grading out as just the No. 91 receiver by Pro Football Focus.

Roddy White was arrested early Tuesday morning on a failure to appear warrant.

White was booked in the Gwinnett County Jail just before 4:30 AM on Tuesday and was released 90 minutes later on $168 bond. The 32-year-old allegedly failed to appear in court on a warrant stemming from a citation for tinted windows. White shouldn't face any league discipline, and this is the last we'll hear of it.

Roddy White said he's working with the Falcons on a contract extension.

White is entering the final season of the six-year, $48 million deal he signed in 2009. Extension negotiations are going to be tricky because he's 32 years old and coming off a year that was marred by nagging hamstring and ankle injuries. But his camp can point to the final five games in which he averaged 8.6 catches for 100.4 yards with two touchdowns. "I do want to stay here the rest of my career. ... We're working to try to get something done. They want me to be here, I want to be here, so let's make it happen."

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said at his season-ending presser Monday that the club is interested in signing Roddy White to a contract extension.

White turned 32 in November. Over the final five weeks of the 2013 season, White averaged 8.6 catches for 100.4 yards per game.

Roddy White caught 12 passes for 141 yards and one touchdown in Atlanta's 34-24, Week 16 loss to the 49ers on Monday night.

It was easily White's best game in what proved to be a lost season for him. He shredded a San Francisco pass defense that entered the night surrendering the fourth-fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. It's been quite the ride for White's fantasy owners. Most of you likely either missed the playoffs or got there without White and didn't use him in a tough matchup. However, those of you that chose to play White in your fantasy title game are probably smiling. White's night started slow, but he turned it on in the second half. He ran right by Tramaine Brock and Eric Reid for his 39-yard touchdown. White also had a number of big catches on third and fourth downs. There's no denying he has some of the strongest mitts in the league. White gets the Panthers in Week 17.

Roddy White caught five passes for 53 yards in Week 15 against the Redskins.

White battled a knee issue in practice this past week, but it didn't appear to be a problem for him. White was targeted seven times on the day and was featured early on before going mostly silent in the second half. It would have been nice to see him have a bigger day against Washington's leaky pass defense. White will get a tough draw next week against the 49ers on the road.
