07:05 AM ET 08.06 | So far, so good for rookie first-round draft pick Cordarrelle Patterson. [Patterson] already has the kickoff return job locked down. Now, the Vikings are contemplating whether or not to give him some reps at punt returner in Friday's preseason game against Houston at the Metrodome. At this point, incumbent Marcus Sherels is the No. 1 punt returner. But he also could lose his grip on that job because he might not make the team as a reserve cornerback. ... [Said Leslie Frazier:] "We want to take a look at Stephen Burton a little bit. We're probably going to give Bobby Felder a chance. We're debating about whether or not we want Patterson to have a chance to do it as well. Jarius Wright may get an opportunity. So we have a few candidates to potentially take a look at."

I wanted the Skins to draft Cordelle bad as hell, but he was gone.

He won't be happy if he's still in that role at the end of the season

Patterson's only real problem is Ponder-ous.

The Packers want Ross to be their PR guy instead of getting Cobb injured but Ross can't field punts. Gee Ted is this another one of those 'late round' finds of yours.
