Departures from the Super Bowl champions continue to mount.
Return specialist, versatile receiver and part-time running back Cordarrelle Patterson is expected to leave the Patriots and return to the NFC North on a two-year, $10 million deal with the Chicago Bears, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported. Pelissero added the contract boasts $5 million guaranteed.
Patterson’s versatility was showcased aplenty in New England with 21 catches for 247 yards and three touchdowns. He also totaled 42 carries for 228 yards and a score and an impressive 28.8 yards per kick return in 23 attempts.
Now, he’ll be a welcomed weapon for the Bears, the reigning NFC North champions, in the second-year under coach Matt Nagy.
