PLAYER PROFILE: Cordarrelle Patterson

Helmet_Minnesota_Vikings_1

Patterson was an easy player to dismiss on waivers earlier in October.  Stefon Diggs was not 100%, Charles Johnson looked lost, and the Vikings clearly didn’t think Laquon Treadwell was ready.  The Vikings are clearly starting to take him seriously; ...
