Cordarrelle Patterson met with Bears

Cordarrelle Patterson was on the opposite side of the field from the Bears eight times during his first four years in the NFL and the Bears liked enough of what they saw to have Patterson in for a chat about joining them.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Patterson visited with the Bears. His search for a new team started with a visit to the Redskins and Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that he’s scheduled to meet with the Raiders on Sunday.

Patterson set a career-high with catches by grabbing 52 passes during the 2016 season, although his ability to bust big plays never materialized as he gained just 453 yards as a receiver. He remained one of the best kickoff returners in the league and scored on a kickoff return for the fifth time in his career.

The Bears used Deonte Thompson as a kick returner last year and he is a free agent, although Patterson would be a clear upgrade if Thompson were still on the roster. With Alshon Jeffery signing in Philadelphia, the Bears could also have room for Patterson to play an offensive role in 2017.

  1. Another great 1st round Vikings BUST! The Vikings always doing the little things to contend for last place in the NFC North year after year!

  2. The Bears are in a tough spot. They have a new QB in Glennon who did his best work in Tampa throwing to Mike Evans, but the Bears’ equivalent to Evans is an Eagle now.

    Cordarelle for the right money would be a nice get but he is not, nor ever will be a true WR. A few jet sweeps and bubble screens a game, hope he gives you some juice on returns and that’s about it. Whether they sign him or not they’re going to need a true #1 – and that’s not Kevin White to anyone with any intelligence at all.). Mike Williams from Clemson is the closest thing in this draft to Alshon or Mike Evans but 3 is way too high for him and he probably won’t be around by their 2nd rounder.

  3. They’ll like him until he goes out for a pass and runs the wrong route. Then they’ll same, “We paid how much for kick returner?”.

    Without a doubt, the dumbest thing I’ll read in my lifetime.

  5. Meanwhile in Green Bay, Ted is busy working on signing a 3rd string tight end despite the Packers giving up 44 points in a playoff blowout last year. Lol, you can’t make this stuff up.

    You are free to disagree with his comment, perhaps even correct in doing so.
    But if that comment is the dumbest thing you’ll read in your lifetime then I would suggest that you haven’t read hardly anything in your life, and aren’t likely to do so in the future.

  7. bassplucker, as a Packers fan I suppose that makes us natural enemies. But your take on Cordarelle Patterson is spot-on, as are many of your comments in my opinion.
    You’re right, he would be an intriguing pickup and a potentially dangerous weapon in spot duty. But only if the price is favorable to your team, because he most certainly is not a traditional or every-down wide receiver.
    Good luck.

  8. Rumor has it Patterson was 10 minutes out of Minneapolis and turned back to find out in which city the Bears played. His Wonderlick is a point behind Spielman’s.

    How many points did your team give up in the nfccg last year? Oh that’s right, they weren’t good enough to make it to the post season and haven’t won a playoff game since 2009. If I were you I’d focus a little more on doing better than 3rd place and a little less on the pack.

    NFC Championship losses? That’s the subject? You mean, like the Vikings losing 41-0 to the Giants a few years ago? FORTY-ONE-TO-ZERO??

    Please explain your point.

    Please.

  12. I think the vikings losers have confused winning actual titles with beating the Lions and bears once per year and the Packers once every 5 years.

  13. And who spends a 1st round draft choice on a KR when 89% of the leagues kickers who don’t go wide left kick it out of the EZ every time?

    Oh wait……Must suck to be associated with Loserville, USA.

  14. I hope he comes back to Minnie. I wouldn’t have said that a year ago, but he impressed me last year. If Vikes lose Peterson, I hope so even more. When he’s run, he’s been effective out of the backfield. I’d like to see him get 5 carries a game or so.

    What was it…21 point lead with 3 minutes left in the game in the nfccg against the Seahawks?

    Surely one does not lose with that lead.

    How’d it turn out?

    That’s right…get more tight ends lol
