Ian Rapoport reports that he expects the sides to reach a "reasonable extension," but there is no indication on what potential terms would be at this time. Deciding on terms will be complicated by the cash-strapped Falcons, who are expected to have salary cap issues in 2014. White held out the last time they tried to work on an extension, finally settling for a 6-year deal that made him the league's fifth-highest paid wide receiver.
White is on pace for the worst season of his career. Offensive struggles paired with a series of injuries have created a scenario where it's unlikely he'll pass 400 yards receiving this season -- a career first. His best game came in a Week 5 matchup against the New York Jets where he caught four passes for 45 yards, but fumbled the ball.
Discussion of extending White could be influenced by the season-ending injury to Julio Jones. Atlanta is in dire need of offensive consistency entering an offseason where Jones will be recovering and tight end Tony Gonzalez is almost certainly retiring.
