Quinton Patton: Visits with Jets
Patton (foot) visited with the Jets on Saturday, the team's official website reports.
The 2013 fourth-round selection had career-high marks in catches (37), targets (63) and receiving yards (408) last season, despite missing the final two games with a broken foot that required surgery. A return to San Francisco is seemingly out of the question, as the 49ers signed Pierre Garcon, Marquise Goodwin and Aldrick Robinson within the first few days of free agency. New York would be a favorable landing spot, potentially giving Patton a chance to compete for a role as the No. 3 or 4 wide receiver behind Eric Decker (shoulder) and Quincy Enunwa. He's never been much of a downfield threat, producing only 12.1 yards per catch on 73 career receptions with a long gain of 45 yards.
