Every Atlanta Falcons’ fan knows that former wide receiver Roddy White has a big mouth. But since he was playing for us, we really didn’t care one way or another.
But now that he is no longer with us, we are starting to see why a lot of other fans around the league didn’t like him very much.
White recently stated that he would have self destructed if not cut by the Falcons and that just wasn’t called for. White still hasn’t signed with another team and this really isn’t helping his cause.

White went as far to say that the 8-8 2015 Falcons would have made the playoffs if they had of involved him more in the offense. He stated that he wasn’t having fun whatsoever and that he’s pretty much glad the Falcons cut him.
White was told by Falcons’ offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan what his role was going to be and he didn’t care for it too much. White thought things would chance but they never did.
All things are forgiven for White’s recent statements, but it needs to stop there. The absolute last thing we want to happen is for his terrific career to be tarnished over him running his mouth to the media.
At the end of the day the NFL is a business and the Falcons didn’t think keeping White for another season was going to benefit their team. He was cut, and that was that. White just needs to keep quiet and continue his life wherever that may be.
