Cordarrelle Patterson Named To Pro Bowl After All

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Within the gigantic mountain of crap that we've seen over the past couple of days coming out of Winter Park, it's about time we had a little bit of positivity, and it was provided to us just a little bit ago.

Yes, Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson has made it to the Pro Bowl after all. He will replace Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Patterson may already be the NFL's best kick returner. . .a point that is moot in the Pro Bowl because, for the first time, the Pro Bowl has eliminated kickoffs entirely (teams will just get the ball at the 25-yard line to start each possession). Brown was on the Pro Bowl roster as both a receiver and a punt returner, so it's possible that Patterson could get a look in that role in the Pro Bowl. Patterson was on the field for a couple of punt returns for the Vikings late in the season.

From what I can see of the Pro Bowl rosters, Patterson is now currently the only rookie on the team. Don't know if that will help his Rookie of the Year campaign or not. . .but it should.

The Pro Bowl teams will be selected on 22 January, with the game itself taking place in Honolulu on 26 January.

Congratulations to Cordarrelle Patterson on making the first of what will, hopefully, be many Pro Bowls.
