FLOWERY BRANCH, GA - On the eve of training camp, the Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a new contract with receiver Roddy White.

The Falcons announced the four-year extension Thursday. Terms haven't been released.

White holds the team records for career receptions (685) and yards receiving (9,436). But he battled ankle and hamstring injuries last season, missing three games and ending his streak of 133 in a row.

White did end the year on a hot streak, with 43 catches for 502 yards and two touchdowns over the final five games. With the retirement of tight end Tony Gonzalez and questions about the health of receiver Julio Jones, the 32-year-old White is still a vital part of the Atlanta offense.

The Falcons open training camp Friday attempting to bounce back from a 4-12 season.
