Undrafted rookie free agent Aron White earned his way to training camp with the Falcons by impressing team officials enough at rookie minicamp in May. Now White is sharing the practice field with one of the all-time greats at the tight end position in Tony Gonzalez.
"Anything that he does mention, you try to take in as much as possible and be a sponge," White said. "At the same time, you don't want to crowd a guy. We all have to act professionally and take care of our own business. Any knowledge that he does share, I'm trying to soak it up."
White is one of six tight ends in camp with the Falcons and after Gonzalez the position appears to be somewhat wide open. White finished his career at the University of Georgia with 34 catches for 512 yards and 10 touchdowns.
