Roddy White doesn’t shy away from the diva tendencies of many successful receivers.

He’s still confident and outspoken, but White has taken on a different role for the Atlanta Falcons this season.

For the first time in his eight-year career, White is no longer the Falcons’ undisputed best player at his position, not with Julio Jones entering his second season.

White promises he won’t be upset if Jones, last year’s No. 6 overall draft pick, catches more passes and scores more touchdowns for the Falcons (No. 13 in the AP Pro32).

While earning his fourth straight Pro Bowl invitation last year, White led the NFC in catches for the second straight season and became the eighth receiver to catch at least 80 passes for 1,000 yards receiving for five consecutive years.
