Raiders add speedster Patterson to boost return game

14 marzo 2017 07:49

The Oakland Raiders signed former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver and return specialist Cordarrelle Patterson on Monday.

Patterson, drafted 29th by Minnesota in 2013, had not developed into the polished pass-catcher the Vikings hoped for when they traded four draft picks to the New England Patriots to move up to make the selection, but he has carved out a niche as one of the NFL's better return men.

The 25-year-old has averaged 30.4 yards per kickoff return in his career and was selected to his second Pro Bowl in 2016.

He also turned in a career-high 52 receptions for 453 yards and two touchdowns to renew his stock as a receiver.

Patterson has led the NFL in kickoff return average in three of four seasons.

Oakland, who already boast a pair of 1,000-yard wide receivers, have long struggled in that department, ranking 20th in the NFL in kick return average last season.

In fact, the last time the Raiders returned a kickoff return for a touchdown was 2011.
