Roddy White is paying up.
We came down hard on the Atlanta Falcons wide receiver last week after he reneged on a playful NCAA Tournament bet with a fan on Twitter.
White initially promised Dylan Hoyt a Falcons season ticket if 14th-seeded Mercer knocked off Duke. But after the Bears stunned the Blue Devils, the pass-catcher announced that Hoyt would get nothing more than one lowly game ticket to see the Falcons take on the Bears.
That didn’t play well with the kangaroo court, but this will:
@DHoyt77 2 season tickets, 2 SB tix, pregame sideline passes to game and a day at camp as my guest. How does that sound

Hoyt tweeted this week that he was fine with White shrinking the terms of the deal, but the receiver’s revised offer has gained the Falcon a fan for life:
I tried telling y’all @roddywhiteTV was a good guy in the end!! Couldn’t ever imagine something this awesome! #RiseUp

You’ve done good, Mr. White. You’ve done good.
