He caught 31 passes for 309 yards in his first year with the Raiders while adding 13 carries for 121 yards and two scores on the ground. The speedy swiss army knife was originally a first round pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2013 and was an All-Rookie teamer with nine total touchdowns, two of which were kick returns. Patterson has only one career punt return but is also an excellent gunner, which is a role that captain Matthew Slater - a free agent - has performed admirably over the years.

He's a two-time Pro Bowl selection and three-time All-Pro as a returner.

Hours after the show's cancellation, the Austin Police Department announced it had arrested a suspect, 26-year-old Trevor Ingram. By that point, Chronicle staffers were reporting that the area was filling up with arrivals for the since-canceled show.

The Raiders had the best average starting field position after kickoffs last season. With the picks, the Pats drafted Jamie Collins, Logan Ryan, Josh Boyce and traded for LeGarrette Blount with the seventh rounder. Former Oakland offensive coordinator Todd Downing used Patterson in various ways last season as one of the team's most dynamic offensive threats. The Patriots need a kick returner now that Dion Lewis has moved on to Tennessee. It remains to be seen how Patterson fits in with the Patriots offense, but the team looks loaded at receiver now with Brandin Cooks, Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Malcolm Mitchell, Phillip Dorsett and Kenny Britt.

In 2014, Belichick was asked about Patterson's ability in the return game.
