For the first time in a long time, Atlanta’s Roddy White doesn’t hold sole possession of the league lead in dropped passes.
Cleveland’s Greg Little has moved into a tie with White for that honor. They each have 11 drops and I think you could make a strong case that Little has been a bigger offender because he hasn’t had nearly as many opportunities as White.
Little has been targeted 95 times and has 52 receptions. White has been targeted 136 times and has 75 receptions.
Tampa Bay’s Mike Williams remains in a tie for third in the NFL with seven drops and teammate Arrelious Benn (five drops) is one of a bunch of players tied for No. 10. New Orleans tight end Jimmy Graham also is in that group of players with five drops.
White, Williams and Benn are largely responsible for keeping the Falcons and Buccaneers near the league lead in drops. The Falcons are tied for fourth with 25 team drops. The Buccaneers are sixth with 24 team drops.
