Football betting tells us they are also without top receiver Roddy White who is holding out. Bet on football tells us that Douglas suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Douglas was filling in for White at the top receiver position and his loss is going to be felt in bet on football.
Whether or not the Falcons will feel pressure to get White into camp remains to be seen as football betting info shows. "I'm a little bit disappointed with the direction that the negotiations are going at this point," Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said, "It's one of those situations where both parties are digging in and feel strongly about their case."
The Falcons are going to need to do something as bet on football info shows. Online betting tells us that they may just pull their offer to White and just let him play for his $2.28 million salary or sit out. "There comes a point in training camp where it is a disadvantage to Roddy himself" Dimitroff said, "Our thought is that soon enough, we'll have to move forward and re-address this at the end of the season." White wants big money and the Falcons are not prepared to give him something similar to what Larry Fitzgerald got. Fitzgerald has a $40 million dollar deal with Arizona as bet on football indicates.
Atlanta is considered a darkhorse candidate in bet on football circles. Atlanta made a nice off-season pickup by getting Tony Gonazalez from the Kansas City Chiefs. The offense for Atlanta was thought to be improved but if White doesn’t sign the Falcons are going to be hurting as bet on football info.
