Roddy White says Seattle Seahawks defense has 'perfected holding'

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is sitting home watching the postseason this year, though that hasn’t stopped the All-Pro from giving his opinion on the playoffs.

White was recently asked about the Seattle Seahawks and their famed ‘Legion of Boom’ and initially gave them some high praise, though ended with a bit a backhanded compliment.

Per NFL.com:

“These are the toughest guys you are going to face,” Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White said of the Seattle Seahawks’ secondary on NFL Network’s “NFL AM.” “The way that they scheme, the guys that they have out there playing man-to-man coverage. They are all tall, they are all long, they are all lanky guys. They have perfected holding.”

For what it’s worth, it didn’t appear that White was calling the Seahawks cheaters as much as he was suggesting they know the tips and tricks that good defenses use.

Regardless, it’s sure to make the headlines this week and could potentially be a minor detriment to the Seahawks if the referees in Sunday’s NFC Championship vs. the San Francisco 49ers have their eye on it more than usual.
