Is “Roddy White” disgruntled with his low production this season? Is he frustrated with the new offensive scheme? Despite copping a lot of slack from several media outlets that painted him to be unhappy, the Atlanta Falcons wide receiver has gone about his business like a true professional.
“This is nothing to get mad over,” White, currently playing second fiddle to Dan Quinn and Kyle Shanahan, said on Tuesday. “I can’t control no plays that are being called in the huddle. All I can do is run the routes I’m supposed to run on the play and do my job. That’s all I can do,” said the Falcons’ all-time leading receiver in terms of yards, catches and touchdowns as well.
Despite White’s insistence that things are fine in A-Town, several reports claim otherwise. According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, a few teams are lining up to trade for the veteran’s services. Since being drafted in 2005, White has been one of the cornerstones of the Falcons’ success.
White, 33, still has a lot to offer and could prove to be a valuable asset to several teams. Despite multiple Pro Bowl selections and a plethora of individual awards, White still yearns for that elusive Super Bowl ring.
The Falcons, who have started the 2015 NFL Season with four wins from as many games, have a legitimate shot at the title this year, but White could be sporting another uniform before the end of the season. White may have a difficult choice to make: either try and contend for a ring with a lesser role or go elsewhere and become the focal point once again.
Teams have some interest in Roddy White, determining possible trade value should they approach ATL. In my opinion BAL, DAL might be good fit
