Atlanta receiver Roddy White has extended his league lead in dropped passes.
White dropped two in Seattle on Sunday to bring his season total to six, two more than any player on the list. But White’s not the only NFC South player struggling with drops. The Falcons and Buccaneers are tied for third in the league in team drops with eight, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
The Saints are tied for 11th with six and the Panthers are tied for No. 15 with five.
After White, the guys having the most problems with drops are Tampa Bay’s second-year receivers. Arrelious Benn is tied for No. 3 with three and Mike Williams is tied for No. 6 with two. New Orleans running back Pierre Thomas and Carolina receiver Steve Smith each have two drops.
On the bright side of drops, Atlanta rookie Julio Jones doesn’t have one yet and he’s been targeted 36 times. Atlanta’s Harry Douglas, New Orleans’ Lance Moore and Devery Henderson and Carolina’s Brandon LaFell are the only other NFC South receivers who have been targeted at least 13 times and don’t have a drop.
