After having his best season in Atlanta last year, Cordarrelle Patterson will stick around.

The Falcons and Patterson have agreed to a new contract, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Patterson was a unique playmaker last season, carrying 153 times for 618 yards and six touchdowns, while also catching 52 passes for 548 yards and five touchdowns. All of those numbers were career-highs.

But wait, there’s more: Patterson also had 18 kickoff returns for 434 yards. And he even played two snaps on defense.

Now the Falcons will bring Patterson back and see what else they can find for their do-everything playmaker to do.

  1. Looks like the Atlanta Falcons may be the first team able to fully utilize Cordarrell Patterson’s skill set. The knock on Patterson has always been his lousy undisciplined route running,but vastly athletic. Just get this man the ball out in space and let him do his thing.

  2. Good to hear he finally found a home where they utilize him properly-good to hear he recognized that

  3. Had a fluke season born out of necessity since ATL only had 1 real NFL talent on the offense in Pitts. Patterson faded in a big way at the end of the season as the rest of the league figured out his gimmicky plays.

  4. Seems like just yesterday Mike Zimmer’s vanilla, unimaginative offense was wasting this guys career.

  5. Atl and Patterson remind me of Forrest Gump. “Jenny and I are like peas and carrots!”

  6. Hey unrealisticpackerfan, go look at old Vike game tapes. They used Corduroy out of the backfield and on bubble screens all the time. You can now go back to celebrating the signing of a TE without a working ACL and scrounging the scrap heap of available WRs – provided the Pack can find one that doesn’t prefer playing for Derek Carr.
