Cordarelle Patterson is taking a fundamental approach to his multifaceted role for Atlanta Falcons. Patterson, whose track record on special teams earned him a spot on the Hall of Fame’s 2010 Team, excelled as a rerunner and recipient in his first season. in Atlanta.
Officially listed as running back, Patterson has dashed 411 yards and four touchdowns this season. He also caught 41 passes in the 500 meters and five touchdowns. In last Sunday’s 21-14 win Jaguar, Patterson roared for 108 yards and made two touchdowns in just 16 runs. Patterson, who returned to the field after being out of action last week with an ankle injury, also lines up in defence and is currently ranked third safe on the Falcons depth chart.
“My day is simple,” Patterson said when asked about what position he attends the daily meetings. “I just go in and wherever they tell me to go, I go. I’m here just trying to help the team win.”
Falcons defense coordinator Dean Pees recently said that there is a package involving Patterson as a free safety.
“I want to catch an intercept,” Patterson said. “That’s my next goal in NFL, to catch an intercept. ”
Patterson is enjoying his unique role in the Falcons offense after spending his first eight seasons as one of the league’s best comebacks. He is also ready and willing to make an impact on the Falcons’ defence if called upon to do so.
“Whenever my number is called, I just try to go out there and play a game,” he said. “I’m just trying to get on the pitch, work and show the coaches that I deserve to keep getting the chance.”
