Raiders trading veteran WR Patterson to Patriots

Raiders trading veteran WR Patterson to Patriots

Nate Solder, Danny Amendola, Dion Lewis and Malcolm Butler will all ply their trade away from the Gillette Stadium this season, while Adrian Clayborn, Jeremy Hill, Matt Tobin, Danny Shelton and Jason McCourty joined the ranks. Yesterday they made another move by acquiring Cordarelle Patterson in a trade with the Oakland Raiders. The Philadelphia Eagles won 21-10.

Patterson has been very productive on kickoff returns, earning two trips to the Pro Bowl for his ability in that area.

But the Patriots have a knack for turning journeyman receivers into stars, so this is a good career move for Patterson. The Patriots have some questions at that position.

The 26-year-old Bostic played 14 games for Indianapolis last season. He could be an interesting candidate to return punts though with the loss of their punt returner a year ago in Danny Amendola. Until they faced Patterson in Week 11. Patterson caught 31 passes for 309 yards last season for Oakland and also ran for 121 yards on 13 carries for three scores.

What Patterson does really well is on the kickoff return. He has 153 career kick returns for 4,613 yards with five touchdowns.

Patterson could also be valuable with the loss of Johnson Bademosi, who was a special teams player that just signed with the Houston Texans.

New England now has a plethora of speed with Patterson joining Brandin Cooks and Phillip Dorsett. On Sunday, the Patriots decided it was time to give Patterson a chance. The Pats needed a kick returner to replace Dion Lewis, and Patterson has averaged over 28 yards per return in four of his five National Football League seasons.
