    Heard on kffl.com that Patten is a possible June 1 cut. Hes behind Moss, Randel El and Lloyd. You guys think we might get him in camp .. let him compete for #3,#4 spot? I mean competition cant hurt anyone..might push Brown back a bit and definatley Johnson

    Branch
    Jackson
    Caldwell
    Patten
    Brown

    ^doesnt look too bad


    Redskins | Patten a possible June 1 cut
    Sat, 20 May 2006 18:27:52 -0700

    Paul Woody, writing for the Sporting News, reports Washington Redskins WR David Patten is a possible June 1 cut. He might have a chance to earn the No. 4 or No. 5 wide receiver spot, but his salary and bonus money might preclude keeping him in a limited role.

    I'd love to have him back on the team. I've been a Bethel supporter, but I'd rather have Patten.

    I'm on the other boat. Patten developed hands of stone in his later years, he only caught 46% of balls thrown his way in 2004. I'd rather pick up an unknown. The only benefit would be that Patten knows the offense.

    True. The upside is that we know what we're getting. The downside is that we know what we're getting. :rolleyes:

    Patten had one good year for the Pats in 2001. However, he was an overachiever. The Pats picked him off the scrap heap and we basically got lucky with him. In truth, Patten is strictly a deep, over-the-shoulder WR with excellent straight line speed. Similar to Andre Davis. However he's not physical and rarely catches balls in traffic. The Pats didn't want him back when his contract was up and the Skins overpaid for his services. He did next to nothing for them before his knee injury. Immediately after the FA period, the Skins traded for Brandon Lloyd and signed FA Antwan Randle El. With Santana Moss, that moves Patten to # 4 on the WR depth chart, at best. That and Patten's $1mil+ salary, make him a lock to get cut. Don't expect the Pats to take any interest when Patten becomes available.

    I disagree. Given the choice of "retire" or play for minimum salary, I think the Pats could get him easily. A WR who already knows the system and would definitely have a chip on his shoulder for being dumped is more valuable then a new one that doesn't. It would not surprise me in the least if BB went for him, because it would make strong "team sense" - - - value.

    I thought of this as soon as the Redskins acquired Randel El and Brandon Lloyd. In fact, I think there's no way Patten DOESN'T get cut. But despite being a big fan, I hope we don't end up going for him - against my better angels, I really want Bethel to get one last opportunity and to make good on it. Signing Patten would mean Bethel (again) couldn't hack it.

    Patten will be in a AFCE training camp near you this summer. I'm not sure he'll want to come here, at vet min, with Johnson still around.

    David Patten is a creation of Tom Brady.

    Too bad Brady didn't "create" Davis or Terrell the same way, then. He must be slacking. (Let's remind him to invent Bethel Johnson, while we're at it.)

    Interesting thought, and I tend to agree in the sense that he wasn't much before coming to the Pats, and not much after.

    If not Brady, then at least he was in a system that utilized his talents best.

    Not sure if you are joking or not. The fact that other WRs were failures does not mean that Patten wasn't "made" by Brady.

    It just means that Brady can't "make" everyone into a starting WR.

    As an example, it is generally accepted that Dante has "made" some of our former UDFA OLine. You can't disprove this by saying that Dante could not turn you into an NFL starting OG or me into an NFL starting OT.

    There are quite a few players that did not do much after leaving the Pats. Greg Spires is the only one I recall who did a lot better. Of course, there are some who say Ty Law did well, also, but I still think the Jets would have won more games without him than they did with him.

    I dont understand why Washignton would do this. It wouldnt take any money off the books by cutting him this year. So why bother?

    LOL, it's been over a year since he's left the Pats and we're still making "there's no way Patten DOESN'T get cut" posts. I love it.
