Disappearing cornerbacks are something of a trend with the Jets in recent years, but this is a new turn even for them.
According to Dom Cosentino of NJ.com, Jets cornerback Dimitri Patterson did not show up for Friday’s preseason game, and hasn’t communicated with the team since then.
General manager John Idzik told reporters Patterson has not communicated with the team since then.
“I’d like to speak to Dimitri,” Idzik said.
Otherwise, no one knows why he’s not showing up for work.
When Idzik took over the Jets, he had Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie at cornerback. Now, he can’t even find the lesser ones he has on the roster.
Patterson was the Jets’ top cornerback at the moment, with Dee Milliner sidelined with a high ankle sprain. But until they know where he is or why he’s not with them, they can’t count on anything.
