Despite his team’s 4-0 record, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is not happy. He’s upset with his lack of utilization in the offense.
“For me, at the end of the day, I want to catch passes,” White told ESPN earlier this week. “I’m not out here just f—ing around just to sit around to just block f—ing people all day. 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.”
White has six catches for 92 yards this season.
Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said he is yet to talk to White, but will soon. However, he will not go out of his way or stray from his gameplan to increase the receiver’s touches.
“I wouldn’t say a point of emphasis,” Quinn told ESPN. “We’ve got great respect for Roddy and all the unique things that he brings to our team. But we don’t generally go into this or that to make it happen. He’s somebody that we think the world of and think a ton of. The [opportunities] will be there, although they weren’t in some of the games. We certainly think that they will be moving forward.”
