Patton was released from the Dolphins' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. The Rutgers product signed on with Miami slightly under a month ago, with his tenure as a Dolphin yielding no game appearances. Patton suited up 13 times with the Chargers last year, making five starts and recording six receptions for 56 yards.
Patton signed to the Dolphins' practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Patton recorded six receptions for 56 yards across 13 games with the Chargers last season but was surprisingly cut by the team in the offseason. He'll now join Miami after a short stint with Cardinals and will give the Dolphins some extra depth at wideout.
The Cardinals cut Patton from the practice squad Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. Patton landed on the practice squad to start the season, and he was never elevated to the active roster. The 26-year-old wide receiver will seek a fresh start elsewhere. He last played for the Chargers in 2019, catching six of 17 passes for 56 yards.
Patton cleared waivers Sunday and signed with the Cardinals' practice squad, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Patton garnered a consistent snap count with the Chargers last season but was waived by the team to begin training camp. He couldn't make the 53-man roster in Arizona, either, so he'll join A.J. Richardson and JoJo Ward as the team's practice squad receivers.
The Cardinals waived Patton on Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. Patton averaged 39.5 snaps over 13 games last season with the Chargers, but he didn't produce much with just six receptions for 56 yards on 17 targets. He was a long shot with Arizona due to its deep receiver room, so he'll seek a depth role elsewhere.
