Kyle Rudolph already trying to help his new team
Free agent kick returner and running back Cordarrelle Patterson is visiting with the Atlanta Falcons and expected to sign with them after spending the past two seasons with the Chicago Bears.
Patterson said good-bye to the city of Chicago on Twitter and New York Giants’ tight end Kyle Rudolph replied in order to recruit him.
I’m sure Rudolph’s efforts are appreciated by the Giants, but there haven’t been any reports of interest from the organization lately. Back in mid-March there was a thought that they could sign him, but of course it didn’t happen.
We do know that head coach Joe Judge really likes Patterson.
“Patterson is one of the best to ever play the game as a kick returner. Simply put, this guy is someone that you’ll read about in history books. When you play against this guy, everybody on the field better be aware of where he’s at, whether that’s offense or on special teams,” Judge told reporters at the time.
“He’s done a tremendous job covering kicks. I’ve had personal experience with CP from my days somewhere else. He’s just a pleasure to coach, he’s a fun competitor to be around. He’s just good for the locker room.”
