The defending AFC Champions have a new weapon to work with on offense and special teams as New England have traded for Cordarrelle Patterson. The former Tennessee Vol played with Oakland last season.

A multipurpose player capable of big plays on both special teams and offense, Patterson had 309 yards receiving, 121 yards rushing and 538 return yards with the Raiders last season. He lasted only one season in Oakland after playing his first four seasons in Minnesota.

News of Patterson’s trade to the Patriots was broke by Pardon My Take.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, the Raiders didn’t get much for trading Patterson, as the Patriots only paid a low-level draft pick and got one in return in addition to the former Vols’ services. Patterson played in Knoxville in 2012, during Derek Dooley’s final season on Rocky Top.
