Despite a thin secondary, the Jets cut the veteran cornerback Saturday in a move that capped a bizarre week involving a player the team had expected to be a starter.
The second-year cornerback suffered a high left ankle sprain during training camp on Aug. 10 and hasn’t practiced since.
“As it relates to my whereabouts, and me missing for 48 hours without being seen or heard from me or my representative, is completely false,” Patterson wrote.
Dimitri Patterson is free to rejoin the Jets on Monday, the team announced on Tuesday night.
He’s back, but he won’t be on the field any time soon. Dimitri Patterson’s mysterious absence has led to an indefinite suspension, Jets general manager John Idzik announced on Monday.
No matter what they tell the media, Ryan and Idzik have to understand that outside help is needed. While they are loathe to take on long-term money, they have plenty of room under the 2014 cap to look into one-year fixes.
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Jets cornerback Dimitri Patterson did not show up for the team’s game against the Giants on Friday night and has had no direct communication with anyone in the organization since. General […]
John Idzik has heard the anger about the offseason’s allocation of funds. He just wants everyone to take a deep breath. He says he’s got this.
New York Jets cornerback Dimitri Patterson says the team’s often-criticized defensive backs have a chance to “shut people up” this season.
As the Jets head to Cortland for training camp this week, questions abound related to the specifics of general manager John Idzik’s offseason retooling. For instance, is Eric Decker really a No. 1 receiver? And where did all the corners go?
New playmakers, fresh-faced rookies and a rejuvenated Rex Ryan. They all have the New York Jets feeling pretty optimistic heading into training camp, with their sights set on ending a three-year playoff drought.
The Jets have signed a very fast wide receiver — just not the one most of the fan base wanted. They’ve also inked a corner, but not one that highlighted this offseason’s free agent class.
Despite an injury report that includes 13 names, the Giants are more talented than most. And they cannot afford to dip under sea level with the gauntlet of a schedule they’ll have to face, beginning next week in San Francisco.
With Michael Vick, the Philadelphia Eagles always feel they’re in the game. It’s only fitting. After all, his remarkable comeback to the NFL is one of the most compelling stories in sports.
