Report: Saints release WR Patten
The 34-year-old veteran’s role diminished this season due to injuries and advancing age, which have robbed him of some of his speed and ability to create separation. He played in just five games last season, catching 11 passes for 162 yards and one touchdown.
Patten has played for five teams over 12 NFL seasons, accumulating 324 receptions for 4,715 yards and 24 touchdowns. He signed with the Saints prior to the 2007 campaign after two years with the Washington Redskins.
