Roddy White closing on franchise marks

Although he’s cooled a bit in recent weeks after carrying the Falcons or much of the season, receiver Roddy White remains on pace for a record-breaking season.

Heading into Monday night’s showdown with New Orleans, White has 106 catches. The team record is 111 by Terance Mathis in 1994.

With two games remaining, White also is well within range of topping his own franchise record for receiving yards. White has 1,307 yards this season. He set the franchise record with 1,382 in 2008.
