Dimitri Patterson meeting with Jets

The Jets are hosting a veteran cornerback who knows the AFC East well.

Dimitri Patterson, who intercepted four passes in just six games for the Dolphins in 2013, is meeting with the Jets on Monday, PFT’s Mike Florio reported.

An eight-year pro from Tuskegee, the 30-year-old Patterson has started 20 games in the last four seasons in stints with Philadelphia (2010), Cleveland (2011-2012) and Miami (2012-2013). He was limited to just six games a season ago with the Dolphins because of a groin injury. Miami released him on March 10, one day before the start of free agency.

The Jets released cornerback Antonio Cromartie on March 9.

  1. Guy is a great corner but cant stay healthy. Can’t help you win when he’s always on the bench.

  2. as a phins fan hate to see him go here. but if the jets are smart they’ll sign him immediately

  3. I really hope the Dolphin’s brain trust knew what they were doing when they released Patterson….because he and Grimes made a pretty good pair at corner. They have had to think he wouldn’t stay healthy. .because his play when healthy was pretty darn good. I hope we get the same results out of Fennigan without the injury part. The last thing I would want to see is a healthy Patterson terrorizing Dolphin’s WRs. Makes me wonder if he purposely going to the Yets to spite the Phins because his release

  4. All the great and very good corners are already signed. There is a reason this semi healthy CB is still on the market. Think about it…

  5. Every year there’s a guy the Jets end up getting that no one thinks can stay healthy but ends up playing all 16 games (Alan Faneca, Jason Taylor, LaRon Landry, Kellen Winslow, Willie Colon).

  6. The Dolphins let him go because he was due over $3.6M and the way he plays with injuries would be about 1 Mill a game. He is a good player, but a Groin injury never goes away. Also, his 4 ints were lucky, 1 right to him and 2 tipped balls. He has only 9 in his whole career with 5 teams, does this say something about luck. Not taking that from him, but basically saying he was to get Elite Money for an average CB.

  7. I can see why the Dolphins didn’t resign this player that when healthy is very good…what I don’t understand is why the Jets want to sign ex-Dolphins. They are notorious for this (Lex Hilliard, Jason Taylor, Yeremiah Bell, Clyde Gates…and the Bills are just as bad). I could see if they signed ex-Patriots, players from a perennial winner. But the Dolphins? Perennial “meh” team that doesn’t seem to know how to finish seasons and get into playoffs…like they used to almost every year.
