Roddy White is a very good player, but he isn’t the brightest guy around. He often puts his foot in his mouth when you put a microphone or laptop in front of him.

During a segment for the NFL Network they were asking White and Julio Jones about other wide receiver tandems in the league and Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz came up.

The same tandem that helped knock the Falcons out of the playoffs last year on their way to the Super Bowl. White describes Cruz as just a “slot guy” and implies he isn’t a “big boy” receiver because he doesn’t play on the outside.

While Cruz does spend a lot of time in the slot, he also torched a lot of teams from the traditional outside position. Also it speaks to Cruz’s versatility that he is able to play pretty much anywhere on the field. Lastly, I think you have be a pretty big boy to play the slot since you crossing right into the face of linebackers and safeties.

White should watch the Lions play, you know how they try to free up Calvin Johnson? By putting him in the slot. Less talking from White insulting Super Bowl Champions and more focus on making sure they score more than a sky hook in the playoffs this year.
