Roddy White and Atlanta Falcons Reach a Happy Ending...Now, Let's Move on

Tim DarnellContributor IAugust 9, 2009

Well, now that that's over with...

Seriously, the Falcon faithful were beginning to wonder if this franchise's attempt at an historic two-consecutive-winning-seasons quest was over before the team ever took to the field for a real game.

Roddy White holds out. Harry Douglas goes down. Both White and the Falcons appear to be digging in ever deeper.

And then...POOF! The morning headlines read that White has ended his holdout, is on his way to camp, and both sides are on their way to living happily ever after.

Kudos to the Falcons for getting the deal done. Kudos to White and his agent for laying low in the public spotlight and not trying their case in the media and the court of popular opinion.

Now, let's look forward to Aug. 15 for preseason game No. 1.
