Falcons | Whitfield bitter over how he was released

Steve Wyche, of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports former Atlanta Falcons OT Bob Whitfield, now with the New York Giants, is still upset in the manner in which he was released from the team in 2003. In an expletive-laced interview with the New York Daily News, Whitfield said he would like to be in a room with Falcons president and general manager Rich McKay so he could "really tell him how I think of his [stuff]. That is what you need to write." Whitfield added, "I don't talk to punks. I'm not disgruntled. He has to do his job. I've got to do mine. Just from a man-to-man perspective, he could have told me, dog." Whitfield claims McKay led him to believe he'd be part of the team in 2004, but Whitfield heard through the media that his job security was uncertain. He was then but before the regular season started, which helped lead to his grudge.
