Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson: I'm entering make or break year
"This year is going to make me or break me, and I hope I step up and have a good role in this offense," Patterson said Monday during the second week of voluntary workouts.
Patterson worked out in San Francisco last month while many of his offensive teammates were working out in Los Angeles.
"I feel like I needed to work on something different from what those guys were doing," Patterson said. "So I went to San Francisco."
He indicated he touched up on some skills that needed refining.
"This whole offseason, I spent a lot of time just thinking to myself, 'How can I get better?' " he said. "I just want to let my game speak for itself. I just focused on the little things that really matter, and I hope this year will be way better than last year. Just route running. Growing up, I was always athletic and could just do anything. I'm in the NFL now, so I just have to focus on my craft and just work at route running, getting in and getting out of breaks and stuff like that."
Patterson could open the season as the team's slot receiver depending on how the Vikings approach this weekend's draft.
Vikings LB Chad Greenway unsure if he'll play beyond 2015
"I don’t know how it’s going to go," Greenway said Monday. "I’ll tell you I’m enjoying everything with the idea of, 'Who knows? We’ll see.' Ten years is sort of that unwritten (goal). Everyone wants to get there. We’ll see what happens."
Greenway ranked No. 38 out of 40 outside linebackers in a 4-3 scheme, per Pro Football Focus, but his teammates still see him as a pivotal part of the team.
"I love it," defensive end Everson Griffen said. "That’s a big leader. He was our defensive caller last year. When we didn’t have him in sometimes it was kind of rough to get the calls in, but having in him, he’s a big vocal point of our team. He’s a leader. He’s been here. This is his 10th season. So I’m happy the guy’s still here. I love him like a brother."
Greenway agreed to restructure his contract in late March to return to the Vikings for his 10th season.
