Cordarrelle Patterson made his mark in the New England Patriots second preseason game this summer.
The second half of the contest between the Patriots and Eagles was full of surprises. Cordarrelle Patterson managed to haul in the 11-yard pass from Brian Hoyer to the first touchdown while wearing the Pats uniform. He actually put his new club up 34-7 over the Eagles. Patterson caught two of three targets for 34 yards and the score.
Patterson was aiming towards the huge touchdown gain earlier in the first half. However, he was ruled out of bounds. The good news is that he’s officially on the board.
The player made his way to Foxboro after the Pats traded him in the big dea with the Oakland Raiders. We all recognize Patterson as the superb kick returner. That’s his reputation in the National Football League.
Patterson has his best seasons as a past catcher at the beginning and the end of his time with the Vikings. He saw 70 targets and put up at least 45 grabs.
Last season the Raiders used him as a gadget player on offense, and he caught 31 of 42 targets for 309 yards. Patterson rushed for 121 yards and two touchdowns.
Patterson was also the kick returner for Oakland in 2017. He fielded 19 kicks for 538 yards providing him a 28.3 yards per return average.
When it comes to his game with the New England, Patterson will be a more well-rounded weapon, and has great chance of enjoying an excellent start.
The Patriots are at the beginning of their big season, and they will sure jump really high this time. They couldn’t win the Super Bowl, but this time things could easily change. Keep up the good job, Pats, you have great chances of winning the Super Bowl.
