FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Roddy White and Julio Jones believe they can become the NFL’s top receiving tandem.
That’s not to say White and Jones are promising that success will come easily.
The Atlanta Falcons’ offense is still a work in progress.
Entering his eighth season, White has reached several personal goals such as becoming the eighth NFL receiver to catch at least 80 passes for 1,000 yards receiving in five consecutive years.
But he also led the league in dropped passes last season.
Jones is entering his second season. His numbers were respectable last season, but hamstring injuries to both legs sidelined him for three games.
It wasn’t exactly the debut Jones had in mind after leaving Alabama as a junior and becoming the No. 6 overall draft pick.
