But the Patriots have a knack for turning journeyman receivers into stars, so this is a good career move for Patterson.

The Oakland Raiders have traded wide receiver/return man Cordarrelle Patterson to the New England Patriots, according to Pardon My Take and confirmed by Chat Sports.

He led the National Football League in kick return average in 2013, 2015, and 2016, topping 30 yards per return each season.

The Patriots are adding another offensive weapon for Tom Brady.

The report also indicated the Pats will exchange their fifth-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft for the Raiders' sixth-round pick.

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

Patterson, a first-round pick in 2013, has been electric with the ball in his hands throughout his career. The move also frees up over $3 million in cap space for the Raiders. With the picks, the Pats drafted Jamie Collins, Logan Ryan, Josh Boyce and traded for LeGarrette Blount with the seventh rounder.

For Patterson, there likely was little room in an system that will require precise route depths such as Gruden's, as he has remained a disappointment in that department since being selected No. 29 overall by the Vikings in 2013. Former Oakland offensive coordinator Todd Downing used Patterson in various ways last season as one of the team's most dynamic offensive threats.

"He's big, strong, aggressive, hard to tackle", Belichick said.
