Falcons' Roddy White Agrees To Share The Load

Roddy White led the Atlanta Falcons in all major receiving categories last year. This year, things might be a little different, and according to The Augusta Chronicle's George Henry, Roddy White would be okay with that.

White has always been a bit of a diva, but he seems to be in favor of spreading the ball out more this year. Said White, "I told them earlier in the season that I don't want to be the most targeted receiver in the NFL. We've got a lot of good playmakers and we've got to spread the ball around."

Since being joined by sixth-overall pick Julio Jones last year, White is taking a team-first mentality. Added to the mix WR Harry Douglas, who recently returned from a rib injury.

White has been a Pro Bowler for four years in a row, and led the NFC in receptions last season.
