FLOWERY BRANCH — In order for the Falcons’ offense to soar under new coordinator Dirk Koetter, Pro Bowl wide receiver Roddy White figures that he must do less.
“I know that sounds crazy, but we’ve got other guys out there that can play,” White said. “Julio [Jones] is going to be a big part of the offense this year. Harry [Douglas] is going to do wonders in the slot. We have to maximize our talent and get the ball in everyone’s hands.”
White, a three-time Pro Bowler, has been the most productive wide receiver in the NFL over the past two seasons in terms of receptions. He led the NFL with 115 catches in 2010 and was second with 100 in 2011.
White, who’s set to enter his eighth season, became the eighth player in NFL history with five consecutive seasons with at least 80 catches and 1,000 yards receiving in 2011. He also led the league with 15 dropped passes
