It took nine NFL seasons, but a team finally figured out how to best utilize the talents of Cordarrelle Patterson. One of the most versatile offensive weapons in the league, Patterson enjoyed his best year as both a runner and receiver in Year 1 with the Falcons. Atlanta head coach Arthur Smith schemed a number of ways to get one of his top playmakers the ball in space.
Patterson lined up all over the field and took advantage of mismatches. While Patterson could be lured back to Atlanta given his success in Smith’s offense, we wouldn’t be surprised to see another team splash some cash for the dual-threat. The Jets desperately need some juice offensively. Patterson lining up in the backfield or out wide would open up the field for young QB Zach Wilson to make some plays.
Prediction: Patterson signs a 3-year, $27 million deal with the New York Jets
