What to Do with 84?

Recommended Posts

Now that Diggs has gotten a shot at the big league, I have been hearing a lot of speculation on Patterson.  Will he have a spot on the roster when Johnson and Wright come back?  What does everyone think?

It would be nice if they could get something for him in a trade but that is unlikely. They will probably just end up cutting him.

Someone may take a flyer on him since he's young and still on his rookie deal.  He has also shown that he has the ability to be a high level talent there just seems to be something getting in his way.  I'm just not sure what happened to cause him to regress as much as he has.  At the end of his rookie season he was showing all kinds of talent and now its just gone. 

I can see someone maybe offering a 6th round pick for him.  Any player a team gets with a 6th round pick is going to be a long shot, why not use that pick and take a flyer on a guy like CP and hope he can tap into some of that potential.

Spielman still has nice things to say about him but that doesn't mean a thing in buisness.  Last year CP was supposed to go to someone in California I believe for motivation therapy or something at the request of Zimmer.  CP did not go, so I think Zimmer is not happy about that.  Spielman may be the only one holding out.  However in my opinion Patterson does not have it to be a reciever.  Does he have the physical ability, of course, but he seems not to get the routes or calls.  His best talent is in kick off returns but we have those bases covered.  So I think he will be traded.  good luck.

I think what it comes down to is that Patterson has the athletic ability, but he does not have the right work ethic to play in the NFL.  I expect a trade rather than a cut.  He has to be an upgrade for some other team.

He's lazy and doesn't want to learn to run routes. I don't know that you will get anything but a hamburger or two for him if you trade. Maybe you'll get something but doubt it. He has the ability but just is one of those morons that can't get it together and is going to waste it.

The more I think about it the more I think they may keep him through the year and give him one more off season to get his act together. His value is about as low as it can go right now so they aren't going to lose out on much if they don't trade him.  They could also wait until next season to see what he can do and then trade him at that point.

They could also flat out cut him after this season.  I looked at this contract and his dead money that hits the cap if he is cut goes way down after this season.

Keep him as a return guy and that's it. Cut his pay way down until he is willing to get better at being a pro receiver.

      I fish out of a wheel house, hub or flip. Over the years I have found a camera to be an extremely fishing tool as long as water is somewhat clear. (Dont work well on Red or LOTW). My Flasher or Showdown both mark fish before they show up on camera due to cone area greater than camera view. Biggest advantage over flashsr/showdown is the "light bite" which happens often on ice. With flasher, red (fish) consumes green (bait) turning green to red indicating fish on - setting hook and miss. With camera I see fish barley lip the minnow/worm/plastic often hold a few to 15 seconds than suck bait in and instentally spit it out aka the miss. With camera you see the suck in, set the hook, fish on. Watching the many behaviours really adds to wisdom. Sometimes like last Sunday watching my grandkids playing and learning with Gills & Perch was extreanily gratifying. My camera is self built, in a suitcase totally push button wireless to drop, retrive, rotate left/hight, one button record high def.

      😄 yeah, actual lumber would be littering.  I just meant that as a slang expression for wood, aka branches.     For what it’s worth, I think you know I’m also one who appreciates a good muskie and will gladly abide by conservation efforts for the specie.  I just don’t put any one fish higher above all others when it comes to the management of a lake.  Except maybe lake trout! 🙃

      Lake travel getting better...you can thank me for buying tracks 3 weeks ago!!!  LOL  Good thing is it'll make it easier to get around bad part is the sun will start eating up the ice quickly.

      Cell service is spotty but ATT is available several places on the lake.  You can also use the cell phone at the Sherrick's office in an emergency.  Just ask for Steve.  Call 937 244 1900 for any additional questions. Chuck Ziegler Owner
