Is Patten Gone?

Assuming the report on ESPN was legit, and that Jacobs is already packing his bags...is Patten heading out of DC? Because of last seasons injuries, and lackluster performance when he wasn't injuried, I think he is gone.

Re: Is Patten Gone?

I don't know that we can rush to that decision quite yet about patten, jacobs however is done. Last year we had NOOOOO depth at wideout and when patten got injured our offense suffered. I would prefer to keep Thrash over patten though because of his great special teams play.

Re: Is Patten Gone?

Cutting Patten would only save us about 647K. So I think he stays this year at least.

Poor guy came to DC because he was the 4th guy in NE, and look at him now, 4th guy in DC.

Patten will be here, why get rid of quality depth? That would be dumb.

I agree, he wasn't used as a #2 in NE. I hope he can deal with moving back to #4 this year. I think it's probably a better idea to hang on to him judging from what happened last year when he went down. I know you can have too many egos at WR, but I now don't think that you can have too many bodies

Re: Is Patten Gone?

Patten is a Redskins type of player, not afraid to do the physical dirty work. He is a keeper.
Jacobs on the other had is a wimp and does not like to mix it up with the DB's. Send that wuss back to Florida.

Re: Is Patten Gone?

No James Thrash and Jacobs are toast. Gibbs got rid of Coles, Gardner and McCants and only replaced the 1# position and really didn't have the players to replace the 2#and 3# spots. If Patten stays he's a number 4# respectfully. I think Al Saunders will utilize all of these guys in offensive packages in the same way as Gregg Williams did with the defense.

Givens, Branch & Troy Brown were ahead of him.

Re: Is Patten Gone?

cutting thrash saves us more money than cutting patten. cutting brown and jacobs save us more than patten.

patten is probably staying. thrash brown and jacobs are all probably gone (1.9mill in savings)

seriously who would you rather have? a 500-800yard WR or 3 guys that totalled close to 100 yards this season.

I agree that he probably will be here but I'm not sure he'll be happy. He obviously was not happy with his opportunities last year, now they may be even fewer.

Branch went down and Patten stepped in as the #2. Troy Brown was #4 on the depth chart; dude hasn't been a serious wideout in years.

Givens: 56 receptions, 874 yards, 3 TDs
Patten: 44 receptions, 800 yards, 7 TDs
Branch: 35 receptions, 454 yards, 4 TDs (only played 9 games)
Brown: 17 receptions, 184 yards, 1 TD

Re: Is Patten Gone?

My guess is Patten stays and it's a wide open competition for spots. Thrash seems superfluous with Randal-el's specials abilities, but Gibbs LOVES Thrash, so he may find a way to keep him.

We'll see!
