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. Aug 9 - 10:23 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.

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.
Apr 2 - 3:27 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.

The Jets are hosting free agent CB Dimitri Patterson on Monday.

Patterson is a 30-year-old slot corner who could be viewed as a value pickup at this stage of free agency. He consistently earned positive marks from Pro Football Focus in Miami, and was always a tough match for inside receivers.
Mar 31 - 1:34 PM

Dolphins released CB Dimitri Patterson.

The move creates $5.3 million in real savings, and $5.4 million in cap space. Going on 31, a groin injury limited Patterson to just six games and 241 snaps last season. With free agent Nolan Carroll expected to walk, the Dolphins now have a major hole opposite Brent Grimes.
Mar 10 - 5:20 PM

The Dolphins have seriously discussed internally asking CB Dimitri Patterson to take a pay cut.

Patterson is due $5.3 million in 2014 base salary, a high number for a 30-year-old No. 2 corner that appeared in just six games last season. If Patterson is back, he'll likely start opposite newly minted Brent Grimes. Nolan Carrol is a free agent.
Mar 3 - 10:53 AM

Dolphins placed CB Dimitri Patterson (groin) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Patterson has been bothered by this groin issue since Week 1. He managed to gut out 19 tackles, four interceptions and six pass breakups in six games, but his latest setback proved too much to overcome. Due $5.3 million in 2014 base salary, the Dolphins should be moving on from Patterson.

However, the Dolphins won't have center Mike Pouncey (illness). Undrafted rookie Sam Brenner is starting. The rest of their inactives: T Isaako Aaitui, RB Mike Gillisslee, QB Pat Devlin, OL David Arkin, CB Will Davis and OT Jonathan Martin.
