Through the first five weeks of the season, very few players in the NFL seem to be having more fun than Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson. The former first-round pick signed a one-year, $3 million deal in Atlanta over the offseason, which now looks like a major bargain.
During Sunday’s 27-20 win over the New York Jets in London, Patterson racked up 114 total yards (54 rushing, 60 receiving), and even attempted a pass. The do-it-all weapon’s production at age 30 seems like a good indicator of the kind of creativity fans can expect from head coach Arthur Smith on offense.
In Week 5, Patterson was wired for sound. Check out his full five-minute mic’d up segment below, as shared by the team’s Twitter account.
