The team signs a player named White, and everyone reads the first name wrong.

 

The Atlanta Falcons entered training camp today with only 89 on the roster. That didn’t last long, as the team announced that they have signed DB Ryan White from Auburn University.

 
At 5’10” and a little under 200 pounds, White is on the smaller side of what Quinn prefers in his defensive backs. White appears to have ok speed, though he’s not going to be catching Julio Jones from behind in camp.

Obviously, White has an uphill battle and is a long shot for making the roster. He’ll probably get the next few practices to prove his worth, otherwise his time with the Falcons will probably be pretty short.

Your thoughts on the signing?

The team has signed a mysterious walk-on, rookie DB Ryan White to the 90 man roster.

When Quinn was asked what stood out to him about DB Ryan White. “In a word, his maturity. Maturity and professionalism. White looks absolutely at home on the field here. He even gave a rookie DB directions around the facility. He's a team player.”

Ryan White successfully picked off Matt Ryan 4 times today. "He was in Matt's head all practice. You'd swear they had been working together for years."

We'll have to wait to see whether he pans out. At the rate he's going he may have a shot to make the 53.
