After posting a whopping 3,392 all-purpose yards and setting multiple NFL records, you would think Cordarrelle Patterson would have established himself as a top-notch receiver in his first two seasons. But the versatile 6-foot-2, 220-pound wide out knows he’s facing a make-or-break year in 2015, which is why he’s spent an entire month working out in San Francisco with a fitness...

Cordarrelle Patterson Claims: “This Year is Going to Make me or Break me”

Minnesota Vikings’ wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson started out with high hopes last year after a somewhat promising rookie campaign in 2013.

Mike Zimmer shows frustration with Cordarrelle Patterson

It's official: Cordarrelle Patterson has entered Slumpville. The Vikings' young (but wildly talented) receiver, continuing to trend downward, had just two catches for 15 yards in the Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Lions.
