Free agent CB Dimitri Patterson is facing a felony child-abuse charge stemming from an August 1 incident at a South Florida mall.
Patterson met his ex-girlfriend at the mall for a custody exchange of their one-year-old son. The two got in an argument, and Patterson allegedly turned aggressive, grabbed his ex-girlfriend by the neck and threw her to the ground. The young child was in his mother's arms and ended up hitting the ground as well, resulting in a bruise on the back of his head. Patterson last played in 2013. Wed, Aug 12, 2015 02:55:00 PM

Free agent CB Dimitri Patterson turned down a minimum-salary offer from the Seahawks.

We're not sure what Patterson believes he's worth. He's one of the worst corners in the league -- he's not even technically in the league at the moment -- and can't stay healthy. Patterson is also 31 and coming off a preseason episode when he went AWOL from the Jets because he couldn't crack a starting job for them. Patterson is "best" in the slot, but he's not even good there.

Free agent CB Dimitri Patterson worked out for the Lions on Wednesday.

The Lions are desperate for corner help after losing slot CB Bill Bentley to a torn ACL. Patterson does his best work in the slot. He was released by the Jets at final cuts after being accused of going AWOL. The 31-year-old has made 20 career starts, but hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2010 with the Eagles.

Jets released CB Dimitri Patterson.

Patterson was suspended until September 1 for going AWOL prior to the Jets' third preseason game. Patterson denied he went AWOL, and generally handled the situation as poorly as he possibly could have. Despite his erratic behavior and subpar play, Patterson will likely land with another team. The Texans are reportedly interested.

The New York Daily News believes suspended Jets CB Dimitri Patterson's roster spot is in danger.

Patterson's suspension is of the token variety — it covers only the fourth preseason game — but he's apparently wearing out his welcome in the Big Apple. Per reporter Manish Mehta, Patterson "won't be missed ... if/when he's cut." The Jets no longer appear to be counting on Patterson as a starter, but they're still not in a position where they can be shedding bodies at cornerback.

Jets CB Dimitri Patterson said his absence from the team last week had nothing to do with his place on the depth chart.

Patterson denies that he went AWOL ahead of the third preseason game, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Even though agent Drew Rosenhaus said his client was dealing with a "personal issue," Patterson was still suspended until September 1. The reserve corner's strange statement released to the media Thursday still doesn't explain why he left the team.
Thu, Aug 28, 2014 10:46:00 AM

The Jets have suspended CB Dimitri Patterson for the remainder of the preseason, but made him eligible for reinstatement on September 1.

In other words, he's not suspended. Patterson likely wouldn't have played in Thursday's preseason finale to begin with. Patterson would have been released were he a less-important player, but the Jets can't afford to shed any bodies at cornerback. What remains unclear is Patterson's status as a starter, but he's more likely than not to be in the Week 1 lineup.

The New York Daily News reports suspended Jets CB Dimitri Patterson's decision to skip Friday's preseason game was prompted by frustration with the team's "cornerback pecking order."

Patterson was believed to be the Jets' No. 2 cornerback, but had apparently fallen down the depth chart as he battled an assortment of minor injuries. Now he'll have to prove he's still committed to the team to even earn a reserve role.
Mon, Aug 25, 2014 05:16:00 PM

Jets suspended CB Dimitri Patterson indefinitely.

For reasons still unknown, Patterson skipped Friday's preseason game against the Giants. "(An indefinite suspension) will allow us to gather more information as to what led to his behavior," were the words of GM John Idzik. Going by the depth chart, the Jets can ill-afford to release a presumptive starter, but Patterson's commitment is now a huge question mark. ESPN New York's Rich Cimini believes his future with the team is "shaky at best."
Mon, Aug 25, 2014 01:04:00 PM

The agent for Jets CB Dimitri Patterson says his client will report to the team on Monday after going "AWOL" on Friday and Saturday.

The Jets didn't know where Patterson was, and according to reporters he refused to reply to phone calls and text messages. It appears he plans to continue playing football. The Jets need Patterson, particularly with Dee Milliner battling a high ankle sprain. Patterson is a projected starter.
Sun, Aug 24, 2014 04:40:00 PM

Starting Jets CB Dimitri Patterson has gone "AWOL," and did not show up for Friday's preseason game against the Giants.

The team has "no idea" why Patterson didn't show up against the Giants. He's reportedly fine physically. According to reporter Rich Cimini, Patterson's agent is "also in the dark." With fellow starter Dee Milliner dealing with a high-ankle sprain, the Jets are shockingly thin at cornerback. If Patterson is gone for good, the Jets will be looking at a crisis situation for Week 1. Reserves Kyle Wilson and Darrin Walls are not starting-quality corners.
Sun, Aug 24, 2014 03:27:00 PM

Jets CB Dimitri Patterson struggled in Thursday night's preseason opener against the Colts.

He was burned by Da'Rick Rogers for a 45-yard reception, and lost his footing on a Hakeem Nicks 15-yard grab. Patterson is not a starting-caliber corner, but with few other options on the roster, he is the favorite to open the season opposite Dee Milliner. The Jets' secondary should struggle again this season.
Sat, Aug 9, 2014 10:23:00 AM

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, Jets coach Rex Ryan confirmed CB Dimitri Patterson is in line to start.

This was the expectation after the Jets signed Patterson in April, but was confirmed after they declined to address their cornerback need before the third round of the draft. Patterson's primary home will be the slot, which he'll man in nickel situations, upgrading on Kyle Wilson.
Thu, May 15, 2014 02:55:00 PM

Jets CB Dimitri Patterson said he underwent groin surgery in Week 17.

With the Dolphins, Patterson underwent the operation after being placed on injured reserve on December 10. The extent of the operation is uncertain, but Patterson should be ready for training camp. He's tentatively expected to fill a top-three corner role for Gang Green in 2014. Patterson turns 31 in June.
Wed, Apr 2, 2014 03:27:00 PM

Jets agreed to terms with CB Dimitri Patterson, formerly of the Dolphins, on a one-year, $3 million contract.

The Jets have finally found a corner, though Patterson isn't a candidate to start opposite Dee Milliner on the outside. Going on 31, Patterson is a nickel corner. Patterson did typically good work in the slot last season, but was limited to six games by a groin injury. That, coupled with Patterson's age is a concern, but he was easily one of the best corners remaining on the market.
