Cordarralle Patterson Honored Again
Minnesota Vikings wideout and returner Cordarrelle Patterson keeps racking up award honors for his stellar rookie season.
On Monday, Patterson was named to the Pro Football Writer Association's All-NFL and All-NFC teams. Earlier this year, he was selected to the Pro Bowl, and was the December NFC Offensive Rookie of the Month.
In 2013, Patterson set the Vikings record for return yards and was the first Vikings player to score a rushing, receiving and returning touchdown. On the season, he had four receiving touchdowns, three rushing touchdowns and returned two kickoff returns for touchdowns. He scored six touchdowns in his final five games for the Vikings.
Patterson was the only Vikings players named to the PFWA All-NFL and All-NFC teams.
