    Falcons’ Cordarrelle Patterson: Role in offense TBD

    Though the versatile Cordarrelle Patterson profiles as “a gadget guy” for the Atlanta Falcons, Tori McElhaney of The Athletic suggests the 30-year-old, who can also feature as a wideout and returner, could be used in a more traditional backfield role this coming season.Unless the Falcons make a move to bolster their backfield personnel, Patterson’s main competition for backup slotting behind presumed starter Mike Davis figures to come from Qadree Ollison, Tony Brooks-James and Javian Hawkins. Once training camp gets rolling, we should gain added clarity with regard to the team’s running back pecking order, but this is a situation to monitor, given that Atlanta no longer rosters its top three rushers (Todd Gurley, Brian Hill and Ito Smith) from 2020.

    Falcons’ Cordarrelle Patterson: Inks deal with ATL

    Cordarrelle Patterson is signing a one-year, $3 million contract with the Atlanta Falcons, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.The 30-year-old is best known for his work on kick returns but can also provide depth at running back or wide receiver. The Bears used him as a backup RB last season, with Patterson taking 64 carries for 232 yards (3.6 YPC) and catching 21 passes for 132 yards (6.3 YPR). He isn’t exactly a natural in the backfield, but Patterson could be in the mix for backup work, especially if the Falcons don’t bring in an early draft pick on a back. It’s also possible he shifts back to a depth role at wide receiver.

    Bears’ Cordarrelle Patterson: Likely to leave Chicago

    Cordarrelle Patterson doesn’t seem likely to re-sign with Chicago, according to SI.com’s Gene Chamberlain.Given their hefty salary commitments and unsettled QB situation, the Chicago Bears don’t seem likely to spend significant money on a player who primarily makes an impact on special teams. Patterson did add backup RB work to his bag of tricks in 2020, but he averaged only 3.6 yards per carry and 6.3 per reception, while starter David Montgomery put up 4.3 YPC and 8.1 YPR. In any case, the Bears hope to have Tarik Cohen (knee) back in the mix next season, so Patterson won’t necessarily get carries even if the team somehow manages to keep him around at a reasonable price. He’s scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March.

    Bears’ Cordarrelle Patterson: Limited role in defeat

    Bears’ Cordarrelle Patterson: Considered questionable for finale

    Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) carries a questionable designation into Sunday’s game against the Packers after participating fully in Friday’s practice.Patterson submitted full sessions Wednesday and Friday, but the versatile veteran still carries an injury tag into a vital Week 17 home game against Green Bay. Having just earned his second Pro Bowl nod in as many years, Patterson remains an elite special-teams contributor, compiling an NFL-high 964 kickoff return yards and one return touchdown in 2020. Patterson has also contributed 126 rushing yards and one rushing TD over 31 attempts the past seven weeks, as he continues to step in as the No. 2 back in the absence of Tarik Cohen (knee-ACL). Patterson hasn’t missed a game all year, and he’s only sat out one of a possible 127 regular-season contests since entering the league as a first-round pick in 2013.

    Bears’ Cordarrelle Patterson: Sticks to special teams

    Cordarrelle Patterson didn’t play on offense in Sunday’s 41-17 win over the Jaguars, JJ Stankevitz of NBC Sports Chicago reports.Patterson dealt with a knee injury during the practice week, so perhaps that led to the decision to restrain his usage to just three snaps, all on special teams. The blowout nature of the game and David Montgomery’s success may have been factors as well. It’ll be interesting to see how Patterson is used in the season finale against the Vikings.
