Now that enigmatic wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson has a more firm grasp on the fundamentals of playing wide receiver in the NFL, he can allow his natural talent to shine through.
"He's really done well," Zimmer said last week, via FOX Sports North. "He's running routes good. He's working hard. So we just need him to continue to do those things and continue to keep getting consistent and keep improving. I've been impressed with the things that he's done."
Unlike the two previous years, though, Patterson is going to have to compete for snaps as opposed to being given the benefit of the doubt due to his undeniable potential.
