Just imagine the plays Matt Nagy has already drawn up for Cordarrelle Patterson, who’ll likely see time on offense as a receiver, runner and perhaps even a passer when the regular season opens on Sept. 5. Patterson will also handle kickoff returns.
“He came in as strictly a wide receiver and obviously was a little bit smaller at the time, but he found his own niche,” Nagy said last week.
Nagy said the team has some plans for Patterson with what the Bears want to do, and Patterson said he's role's been expanded. Nagy added he's proud of Patterson and the fact of what he’s done coming into this camp and digesting the playbook, whether that’s a wide receiver or in the backfield.
