Roddy White plans to be in Atlanta, open stadium in 2 years

Posted: Updated:

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Roddy White says he plans to retire as a career Falcon and to still be in uniform when the team's new stadium opens in two years.
    
The four-time Pro Bowl receiver hasn't been used much in Atlanta's first season under offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.
    
Even so, the 34-year-old White wants to remain with the team through 2017, the final season of his $30 million contract.
    
He says his biggest disappointment is missing the playoffs for a third straight year.
    
The Falcons drafted White late in the first round of 2005. He ranks ninth among active receivers in yardage and 10th in catches. White's 807 career receptions lead the franchise.
    
Atlanta (8-7) ends the season Sunday against New Orleans (6-9).
