The Chicago Bears aren't officially out of the playoff picture yet and if they go on a run, they could end the season 10-6.
However it'll be hard to do that when shuffling starting TE's every week and Trey Burton out for the season.
Special teams superstar Cordarelle Patterson has a solution.
Let him play TE.
“I don’t like being labeled,” Patterson said. “People try to say I’m a receiver, a running back, a kickoff returner. I can do anything on the field if I put my mind to it. I feel like when I get out there, I’m unstoppable. I’m not saying I can’t be stopped, but I feel like I can do anything on the field. Whatever Nagy needs me to do, I can do it.”
While Patterson is interested, it doesn't seem to interest head coach Matt Nagy as Chicago Sun-Times Bears' beat writer, Jason Lieser, said he's been told it's off the table.
Would you like to see the Bears try and line Patterson up at TE?
Re: Cordarrelle Patterson at TE... I’ve asked around about this several times going back to August because I like the idea, and it doesn’t appear to be on the table. Patterson says he could do it. He also says he could play QB, K, LB... And I kinda believe him. https://t.co/rvKE0HHQ8D
