Falcons wide receiver Roddy White says he's fine with role on team
“I’m here for one thing and that’s to win,” White told the AJC. “This is nothing to get mad over. 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.”
White was unhappy with his portrayal in a recent ESPN article. In a story by ESPN's Vaughn McClure, White said that he wanted more catches.
“I’m not out here just f------ around just to sit around to just block f------ people all day,” White told ESPN. “It’s not what I want to do. I’ve contributed to offenses for this franchise for the last nine, 10 years. It always bothers me when I go out and don’t catch any balls in a game because it hasn’t happened in so long.”
The Falcons are 4–0 entering their game against the Washington Redskins on Sunday. In Week 2 against the Giants, White's streak of 130 games with a reception was snapped. In the team's victory over the Houston Texans last week, White caught two passes for eight yards.
“This is the NFL,” White told the AJC. “We are one turnover here or one turnover there from being beaten. At the end of the day, I don’t even think about that. I just think about us being consistency, holding on to the ball and trying to find ways to win.” - Christopher Chavez
