FBI director James Comey has had his hands full after President Donald Trump claimed the Obama administration wire-tapped his phones during the election.
Comey has come out and said he he has no information or evidence on those allegations during a hearing in front of Congress Monday. He also provided some insight on why the Russians were so supportive of Trump during the election, by way of an odd Patriots metaphor.
Patterson, drafted 29th by Minnesota in 2013, hasn’t developed into the polished pass-catcher the Vikings hoped for when they traded four draft picks to the Patriots to move up to make the selection, but he’s carved out a niche as one of the NFL’s better return men.
The 25-year-old has averaged 30.4 yards per kickoff return in his career and was selected to his second Pro Bowl in 2016. He also turned in a career-high 52 receptions for 453 yards and two touchdowns to renew his stock as a receiver.
Patterson has led the NFL in kickoff return average in three of four seasons.
Oakland, which already boasts a pair of 1,000-yard wide receivers, has long struggled in that department, ranking 20th in the NFL in kick return average last season.
In fact, the last time the Raiders returned a kickoff return for a touchdown was 2011.
