Roddy White is set to end his career with the Atlanta Falcons.  The team announced on Thursday that White has agreed a four-year contract extension that will keep him in Georgia for another five years.

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports that White’s new deal is worth up to $30 million with $18 million being paid over the next two years.

White was selected by the Falcons with the 27th overall pick of the 2005 NFL Draft.  The 32-year old quickly established himself as one of the best wide receivers in the league.  This extension will ensure that White will retire a Falcon.

He has 9,436 yards and 55 touchdowns in nine seasons in the NFL and holds a number of franchise receiving records for the Falcons, including most receptions and most career receiving yards
