After vocalizing his discontent with the ways he was being used in the Atlanta Falcons’ offense thus far this season, wide receiver Roddy White apparently had a productive sit down with head coach Dan Quinn this week. White and Quinn smoothed things over and seemed to come to some sort of understanding about White’s role in the 4-0 Falcons’ offense, but that hasn’t stopped a trio of teams from kicking the tires on White, according to a report from NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
The NFL trade deadline coming up in less than a month, there are several teams that could use wide receiver help, and White, and 11th-year veteran with 773 receptions to his name could certainly help a handful of them. Rapoport is reporting that three franchises have reached out to the Falcons about acquiring the four-time Pro Bowler. However, despite the fact that White has become a periphery option in the loaded Falcons offense, right now Rapoport is reporting that it doesn’t appear that the franchise is interested in trading the soon-to-be 34-year-old wide receiver.
The trade deadline is Nov. 3 of this year, one day after White’s 34th birthday, and so over the next three weeks teams were surely monitor White’s usage in that offense and look for signs of unrest and potentially try to use the Falcons’ situation to pick up White for pennies on the dollar. But, for now, it appears that the Falcons and White are ready to move past the incendiary comments that were made earlier in the week.
