Raiders tempt fate, trade away Cordarrelle Patterson to Patriots for peanuts

Raiders tempt fate, trade away Cordarrelle Patterson to Patriots for peanuts

Prior to the Patriots matchup with the Raiders previous year, Bill Belichick said of Patterson, "He plays in the backfield, he plays in the receiver positions".

Early heavy hitters in the 2018 National Football League free agency period, the Raiders may have tempted fate by trading away wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson to the Patriots for next to nothing Sunday. He also returned 19 kickoffs and averaged 28.3 yards per runback.

The Patriots are adding another offensive weapon for Tom Brady.

The Patriots sent a fifth-round pick to the Raiders for Patterson and a sixth-round pick, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported.

For the price of shuffling down the draft board in the later rounds, it was certainly worth exploring the potential of one of the game's most dynamic returners.

It's Galaxy S9 launch day around the world, with many buyers set to receive their pre-ordered Galaxy S9 flavor on Friday. Samsung now has stock of the handsets, but it looks like Flipkart doesn't.

Cordarrelle Patterson was a very exciting signing by the Oakland Raiders a year ago, as he was expected to fill a special team role, as well as make an impact in the passing game.

A first-round pick in 2013, Patterson has a world of athleticism.

Patterson spent one year in Oakland after playing four seasons in Minnesota.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick has called Patterson an "explosive player". Patterson, a first-rounder in 2013, will fill the kick return void that was left by outgoing running back Dion Lewis, and he might be of service as a depth receiver. The Vikings in turn used that selection on Patterson. "He's got good vision and he hits seams but even there are a lot of times where guys get a shot at him and they just can't tackle him or he runs through tackles".
