Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White has been the most productive receivers in the NFL in the last five season with five straight 1,000+ yard seasons and two back-to-back 100 receptions seasons. The Falcons will head into the 2012 season with a new offensive coordinator and the star wide receiver expects to see his role with the offense decrease this season.

Five Falcons Poised for Breakout Seasons

Last year around this time we were all trying to guess who would be the big breakout player for the Atlanta Falcons in 2011.
