Dez White to Atlanta

Postby TTTBone » Tue Mar 23, 2004 6:34 pm

FLOWERY BRANCH, GEORGIA (TICKER) -- Seeking a third receiver to complement starters Peerless Price and Brian Finneran, the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday signed Dez White to a two-year contract.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

White spent his first four years with the Chicago Bears and averaged 48 catches and 556 yards over the last three seasons.



"Our intent going into free agency was to try and add a veteran receiver who had started in the league," said Falcons general manager Rich McKay. "We're happy to get that accomplished with this signing."

White, who attended Georgia Tech, has caught passes from a carousel of quarterbacks in Chicago. Now he gets to play with Michael Vick.

"We actually had workouts this morning and we went out and threw on the field and it went well," White said of practicing with Vick.

White started 31 of 60 games with the Bears. His best year came in 2002 when he caught 51 passes for 656 yards and four touchdowns.

Price, Finneran and Dez should make a nice trio for Vick to throw to.

I like the fact they are attacking WR...He isnt great, but he should fill the 3rd WR decently. I was going to post this and a couple other signings, but hey, im lazy and tired form testing :*)

Just for the record,Canadian Seahawk posted this 2 whole minutes before TripleT.

Just thought I'd give him credit also because it's kinda hard to post any new happs on the Cafe with all the updates flooding in...it's also a good feeling to beat all the FFjunkies to the punch.This thread got the 1st reply so I hadda get rid of C's.

So here's to you C-Hawk,although you guys were probably posting around the same time,you got him by 2.

Keep up the good posting all...back to your reglarly scheduled Cafe program...

Dez White rules. This has got to be the most notable move in free agency this offseason...

...Ergh, I thought he was heading to San Diego f0 schizzle - or something.

With a better O-line and a solid trio of receivers, this can only bode well for Vick's season.....not to mention having a postive effect on the RB's too. How 'bout that? The Falcons could end up have a top 10 offense. Heh.....they better because their defense is still WEAK!

Boooo, Atl needs someone better than Dez White, I rather not have him on the falcons at all then take up a precious roster spot.

Not a bad #3 WR really. Not a huge upgrade, but sometimes it's the addition of a few small things that make a world of difference. They just need to put a defense on the field that isn't a bunch of scarecrows in Atlanta uniforms.

Ok, so now they've got a No. 2 with Price and two No. 3's with Finneran and White.

When are they getting their No. 1?

I think Dez White could make a pretty decent #2 WR. Does this signing have any impact on the rumors that the Falcons will take either Mike or Roy Williams in the draft?
