    Redskins released WR David Patten

    Redskins released WR David Patten.

    The definition of a Patriots system player, Patten caught just 23 passes after inking a five-year, $13.5 million contract in the spring of '05. He turns 33 before the upcoming season and could be finished in the NFL.

    Will be interesting to see who picks him up do you think the Jets will go after David Patten.

    Too bad for David, the Redskins fans ridicule the poor guy for some drops (they were bad). He never really got a chance in washington though, injured his first year and buried on the depth chart thereafter. Too bad he wasn't released some time last year. If the Skins had any sense they would have traded him to the Pats last year for a 6th.

    Lets give him another go, especially if we don't bring troy back. It would be nice to have someone with experience in the system.

    Plus he is one of my favorite players from the past few years. he came out no where to help this team win a few titles. His catches in the back of the endzone in both AFCtitle and SB in our first run were amazing. plus he had that game where he threw a td ran one and caught one.

    Again I will say this , Im very happy with the WR, we have 2 more to add in Troy Brown and a draft pick ... David Patten, while he did some great things for us, has as much chance to make the team as say Drew Bledsoe.. :p

    Shadow roster...

    Really could have used him last year though.

    I for one don't begrudge a guy who loaded trucks to make ends meet before helping us win a couple of rings pocketing a couple of million of Snyders wasted dollars. With Branch and Givens emerging and us tight up against the cap he was never gonna see that kind of bonus money here.

    I once had the user name BradyToPatten.

    But I think that time has passed.

    (Almost adopted BradyToVrabel next, but I digress ...)

    One of my all time favorite plays was Patton TO Brady.

    We got a ****load of mileage out of a couple of smurfs with intangibles. :D

    I like Patten, but we're not signing another WR. That's silly.

    Stupid stupid Redskins....got exactly what they deserved when they raided us and took him away.

    Patten a real good guy and I am glad he got his money, he really deserved it.

    He will always have a piece of my heart for a whole slew of clutch grabs during that first winning Superbowl run of ours.

    All of that said, sorry David, no room at the Inn this year!!

    Beyond his catch, throw, and run for a TD game I'll always remember that he showed his football skills even when knocked unconscious... how many other players can say that?

    He actually was a pretty good deep threat for us in 2004 and that helped that season tremendously... though I know most fans here don't think having a deep threat matters, he definately was a big help.

    I'm sad the guy got iced out in DC, and happy he has Snyder bucks which are hopefully wisely invested to keep him and his family comfortable. I doubt he makes the shadow roster, hopefully whomever signs him does more with him then DC did, former Patriot player vs the Pats exemption activated.

    personally, I would like to bring back some ex-Pats for sentimental reasons, but sentiments don't win games.

    It would be nice to find a spot for Patten and even Christian Fauria, but it just isn't going to happen. Givens would find a spot on the team if he got cut though.

    I really liked him when he was here and I was actually glad to see a guy who came from nothing have a chance at lifetime financial security, even if it was with the Skins. No way would we have paid him anything close to that kind of money. Hopefully, much of his contract was signing bonus and is now his, not Snyder's.

    Really coulda used him here last year but not this year. At age 32 and healthy, there has to be a job for him paying 800 large somewhere in the NFL.

    I feel the same way. He was a good player for us and had a chance to get his only big pay day, so he took it. Can’t blame him for that. No room for him on the team anymore, although I wouldn’t have minded bringing him in last year.

    Same old story... it's Brady that makes receivers here successful, not the other way around.

    C'mon, I'd bring him back to compete for a spot. Washington is no lock, Jackson starts on PUP, and he knows the system.

    That being said, there's no way Patten makes this team.
