Ex-Patriot Cordarrelle Patterson Signs with Bears

Former New England Patriots wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson is headed to Chicago, first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It is a two-year, $10 million deal for the speedy Patterson.

In a short receivers depth chart in New England last season, Patterson had quite a productive year. Bill Belichick used him as the “Swiss Army knife” of the Patriots offense, utilizing his talents by placing him as a running back and as a deep-threat receiver offensively, and as an effective kick returner on special teams.

When he was used as a running back, he put up decent stats, especially since it was his first time playing the running back position at an NFL level. He carried the ball 42 times for 228 yards and scored one rushing touchdown. Meanwhile, he was one of Tom Brady’s top targets in the passing game, too. He made 21 catches for 247 yards and three receiving touchdowns last season.

The Bears’ playoff hopes fell short against the Philadelphia Eagles last season in the NFC Wild Card round as a result of Cody Parkey’s missed field goal. However, the Bears would not have been in this situation had they put more points on the board. Patterson adds a major boost scoring-wise as a return specialist and can be a dual threat offensively for head coach Matt Nagy and offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich.
