Jets claimed CB Johnny Patrick off waivers from the Chargers.

Patrick, 25, is a slot corner by trade. The 2011 Saints third-round pick made four starts last season before going on I.R. with an ankle injury. Patrick will compete for a backup job and contribute on special teams.

Chargers waived CB Johnny Patrick.

A 2011 third-rounder of the Saints, Patrick was claimed off waivers in February 2013. He went on to appear in 13 games, making four starts, before landing on injured reserve with an ankle injury. Patrick's 484 snaps last season were the most of his career, but he remained ineffective. He'll likely have to settle for No. 4/5 corner duties and special teams in 2014.

Chargers placed CB Johnny Patrick on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.

Patrick was claimed off waivers from the Saints last February and appeared in 13 games for the Chargers this season, making 38 tackles and one interception. He started four games as the Chargers were trying to figure out a corner combination that worked. Patrick has one year left on his rookie contract. CB Marcus Cromartie was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Chargers CB Johnny Patrick has been diagnosed with a concussion.

It's Patrick's third concussion since the preseason. He can be safely ruled out for Week 12, and is a candidate for injured reserve. The Chargers' No. 3 cornerback, Patrick has graded out poorly in Pro Football Focus' ratings, but so has every other Bolts corner.

Chargers CB Johnny Patrick has been diagnosed with a concussion.

He also injured his jaw in Thursday's preseason game. The 2011 Saints third-rounder is in the mix for nickel duties. He's week to week.

Chargers claimed CB Johnny Patrick off waivers from the Saints.

The 2011 third-rounder was waived on Tuesday. It bodes poorly for Patrick's future that a team as talent deficient as the Saints on defense would waive a day-two pick less than two years after the fact — especially in February — but he's still only 24. He should compete for a spot on special teams in Chargers camp.

Saints waived CB Johnny Patrick.

Just two years removed from being a third-round pick, Patrick was due only $555,000, but could never establish himself as a starter. That's despite the fact that the Saints boasted one of the worst defenses in league history last season, providing ample opportunity for young players to step up. Patrick was relentlessly burned in coverage when he did take the field. He'll be up against it to crack someone's 53-man roster in camp.

Saints CB Johnny Patrick left Sunday's game with a right knee injury.

Patrick couldn't put any weight on the leg while being helped off by Saints trainers. Newly acquired cornerback Jerome Murphy will be thrown into the fire. New Orleans is already missing starter Jabari Greer.

The Saints are "tentatively penciling in" 2011 third-round pick Johnny Patrick as their nickel cornerback for 2012.

The Saints let Tracy Porter and Leigh Torrence go in free agency largely because they believe Patrick is ready to cover the slot -- Porter's old role. Patrick made just six tackles in nine appearances last season, primarily playing special teams. This year, the Saints will count on Patrick to cover the likes of Preston Parker, Harry Douglas, and Joe Adams in the NFC South.
Tue, May 1, 2012 10:13:00 PM

Third-round CB Johnny Patrick is week-to-week with a knee sprain sustained in Friday's preseason opener.

Patrick has already been ruled out for this week's exhibition game, though coach Sean Payton won't hazard any guesses beyond that. Patrick was looking "strong" in training camp and was expected to push Patrick Robinson at nickel back.
Sun, Aug 14, 2011 08:51:00 PM

Saints signed No. 88 overall pick CB Johnny Patrick to a four-year contract.

A three-year starter at Louisville, Patrick is expected to push 2010 first-rounder Patrick Robinson for the Saints' nickel back job. His biggest impact will likely come on special teams, where he has the speed to take over on returns and as the gunner in coverage.
Thu, Jul 28, 2011 04:39:00 PM

The New Orleans Times-Picayune's Jeff Duncan believes third-round pick Johnny Patrick has a legitimate chance to earn the Saints' nickel back job this season.

The general consensus has been that Patrick will be mostly used on special teams, but Duncan thinks he's a "very underrated prospect." He'll have to beat out 2010 first-round pick Patrick Robinson, who is coming off of an injury-marred rookie season. Patrick and Robinson will also have Randall Gay to contend with if Gay is amenable to a sizable pay cut.

The Saints plan to mostly use third-round pick Johnny Patrick on special teams this season.

A star sprinter in high school, Saints HC Sean Payton says Patrick may even get a shot to be a gunner. The Louisville product also has return skills, and has a real chance to make an impact on special teams as a rookie.
Sun, May 8, 2011 11:44:00 AM

Saints selected Louisville CB Johnny Patrick with the No. 88 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

A three-year starter and all-Conference selection as a senior, Patrick is aggressive and athletic in coverage, showing fine instincts and ball skills. He has a chance to develop as a starter under coordinator Gregg Williams, but he'll have to improve his tackling. He'll enter the league as a dime back and special teamer.
