Cordarrelle Patterson, a wide beneficiary who can likewise play apparently every other situation on offense, has marked a second agreement with the Atlanta Falcons. After a breakout season, he gets a second arrangement with the Falcons, as per a report by Mike Garafolo. The conditions of the agreement have not yet been declared.
Patterson has become perhaps the most adaptable players in the NFL in late year. While he’s recorded as a WR, he’s been a significant weapon through the air and the ground. He’s even finished two or three passes in his NFL profession too, conveying him a genuine intimidation for stunt plays. He’s a Super Bowl champion that will naturally carry back that powerful quality to the Falcons on offense.
Patterson may have had one of his most well-rounded seasons in the NFL last year. He actually led the Atlanta Falcons in rushing and was third on the team in receiving yards. He scored 11 touchdowns, six rushing and five through the air, and racked up over 1,100 all-purpose yards from scrimmage.
What it means for the Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons have been in and out of the news regarding potential movement at the quarterback position recently, but things have been pretty quiet regarding the rest of the skill players they’ll have on the field in 2022 and beyond. With WR Calvin Ridley suspended at least a season and 2021 breakout Russell Gage departing for Tampa Bay, the Falcons were desperately in need of some playmakers outside of TE Kyle Pitts. For now, they gain some stability and versatility with Patterson, but they’ll still need to make some moves if they want to get Matt Ryan (or whoever’s at QB) some viable receiving options.
