Patterson continues to work with the second team offense so far in training camp, but Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is encouraged by his early practices, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He's been impressive. So, you know, today's a new day. We'll see how he does today. Hopefully, today is just as good as yesterday. I donít know that he's turned the corner yet. But heís definitely going around it," Zimmer said.

Cordarrelle Patterson: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Patterson has had a strong offeseason and could contend for a starting job even though he's worked with the second-team offense for most of OTAs, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He's in the mix," Minnesota offensive coordinator Norv Turner said.

Patterson is looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2014 season in which he recorded 33 catches for 384 yards and a TD in 16 games for the Vikings, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "This year is going to make me or break me, and I hope I step up and have a good role in this offense," Patterson noted.

2015

2014

Despite not being involved in the offense until late in the year, Patterson scored nine touchdowns as a rookie (four receiving, three rushing, two returns). And from Weeks 14-17, Patterson had five touchdowns from scrimmage, 15 catches, 215 receiving yards and 129 rushing yards. At 6-2, 220, Patterson is tall for a player with game-breaking speed and elusiveness, and he seems to run even faster than his 4.42 NFL Combine time. In short, thereís little doubt about his physical skills, and we have to think the opportunities will be there from Week 1, even with Greg Jennings still around. Of course, itís unclear who will be throwing him the ball. Matt Cassel was the best quarterback on the team last year, but the Vikings traded up to draft Teddy Bridgewater with the 32nd pick, and itís only a matter of time before he takes over. While Bridgewater certainly has the higher long-term ceiling, Patterson is likely to have to adjust to a rookie quarterback either in training camp or during the year. But the addition of offensive coordinator Norv Turner (the architect behind Josh Gordonís breakout in Cleveland last year while playing with three sub-standard quarterbacks) should help. Expect Turner to target Patterson down the field more and scheme to take advantage of his big-play ability. Throw in Pattersonís added contributions on the ground and in the return game, and thereís a good deal of upside here.

2013

After dealing Percy Harvin to the Seahawks, the Vikings signed Greg Jennings Ė and spent the 29th overall pick on Patterson. While Jennings will be the team's No. 1 wideout, Patterson has an excellent chance to break camp as a starter. At 6-2, 216 and with rare open-field running skills, Patterson is a threat to make plays even on shorter throws. He's tough to bring down, and he makes for a nice red-zone target. Like most rookie receivers, his game lacks polish, and it's unclear whether Christian Ponder will get him the ball farther down the field. Moreover, as long as Adrian Peterson stays healthy, the Vikings are always going to be a run-first team.
