Quinton Patton visits Jets

As the Jets move forward without receiver Brandon Marshall and, possibly, without receiver Eric Decker, they need more receivers. Enter Quinton Patton, possibly.

The Jets have announced that the four-year 49ers wideout has visited. And the reason for the interest in Patton, a fourth-round pick in 2013, is clear; as the team points out in the statement disclosing the visit, offensive coordinator John Morton served as the receivers coach in San Francisco during Patton’s first two NFL seasons.

In 2016, Patton had a career high 37 catches and 408 receiving yards.

The Jets have signed no receivers in free agency. Their limited moves are highlighted by the recent acquisition of former Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne.

    He played for my 9ers… Whew… I had high hopes for this dude coming out. And fairness to Darth Baalke he was rated as a top speed guy by the draft nerds. This guy never delivered. For someone so quick he ran right into the defender… Every time.

    Jeremy Kerley outplayed him by a lot last year. This guy never developed into a starting wideout.

    All talk and no action. Unless you like watching
    unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. Dude has no clue

    Played with the worst QBs in football with the 49ers. Plenty of heart but got few opportunities. He’d be smart to take less cash and go to a team with an established QB.

    Patton is a card carrying member of a terrible group of wide receivers recently drafted by Trent Baalke. That’s all you need to know NY

    Patton is terrible. But what do you expect from a 4th round WR, Randy Moss?

    Who?

    J-E-T-S are so irrelevant.

    As a Jets fan all I can say is who the hell is Quinton Patton? I’m 0% excited that Quinton Patton came in for a visit!

    Might be able to pick up some Jets season tickets on the cheap this year.

    He is a hard worker. Was the starter at the start of 2012 season but hurt his foot. Did not return until late in the season. 2014 he did not start because the Niners had Crabtree, Boldin and Stevie Johnson. 2015 was a disastrous season for the Niners because of bad coaching. 2016 wasn’t that good either because of more bad coaching.

    The guy above said the jets have a established qb? they have 2 qbs on thier roster that hasnt won 10 games combined…..smith and Fitzpatrick are gone..

    Man, I feel sorry for Jets fans….they deserve better.

    Must be tough catching ground balls from Blaine Gabbert and bleacher balls from Kaepernick
