Jets cut Dimitri Patterson

Cornerback Dimitri Patterson’s short and rocky tenure with the Jets has come to an end.

PFT has learned that the Jets have cut Patterson on Saturday, a few days after he released a statement saying that the Jets were dishonest in saying that they didn’t know where he was when he failed to join the team for their preseason game against the Giants. Patterson was suspended as a result that absence, which was rumored to be due to dissatisfaction about the fact that he wasn’t in the starting lineup for that game.

Patterson denied that was the reason, but the Jets obviously didn’t feel that his reason was good enough to warrant keeping him around despite a weak crop of cornerbacks. Patterson was also bothered by leg injuries this summer, continuing a theme of health issues that’s been a constant in his career.

Patterson signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Jets as a free agent this offseason that included a $1 million signing bonus.

    Give the Jets credit for sticking to their guns even though they have a weak secondary

    even though the Washington Redskins need help at corner, I hope they don’t go after this fool.

    the fins picked him off the waiver. fyi, that means he was a player for another team.

    Club paid 1 million for training camp. Player lost 2 million. That’s what you call a lose lose.

    Kyle Wilson couldn’t retrieve the water bottle for his teammates. How is he still employed is beyond me.

    You dont need corners if the qb is laying on his back

  16. wartface says: Aug 30, 2014 6:17 PM

    He went missing… Now his money has gone missing. I hope he paid attention to his academic studies in college.
