Cordarrelle Patterson, Mike Zimmer Have Heart-to-Heart


Cordarrelle Patterson has gone two games without a catch, and after playing just three offensive snaps in the Week 13 win over the Panthers, the wide receiver got just one Sunday against the Jets.

But Patterson says his bond with coach Mike Zimmer has strengthened the past two weeks.

“Me and Coach Zimmer, we had a little heart-to-heart talk this morning,” Patterson said today. “He kept it real with me and I told him how I feel, so just talking to him, I believe in everything he says. I stand behind him and Coach Turner. I respect everything they’re doing. Getting that talk out of the way, it makes have a little less pressure on me. It makes me feel good to go in there and talk to him.”

Patterson said both Zimmer and he initiated the conversation, but wouldn’t say what was said.

“That’s nothing that any of y’all should know,” Patterson said. “Whatever me and Coach Zimmer talk about, that stays between us. That’s how I feel like it should be and that’s how it’s going to be.”
