Former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White says he plans to retire if he doesn’t get the opportunity to sign with a Super Bowl contender, according to ESPN.
White, 34, started all 16 regular season games for the Falcons last season, but was released early on in the off-season.
He said he has been offered contracts with other teams since his release, but is not interested in playing for a franchise he doesn’t feel can win it all.
“I’m considering playing for a winner, but if I’m not I’m fine just where I'm at right now,” White told ESPN.
According to White, there are about six teams that meet his criteria, although he didn’t specify which teams.
White has spent all of his 11-year career with Atlanta, which chose him in the first round of the 2005 NFL draft.
He is a four-time Pro Bowler and earned first-team All Pro honors in 2010.
