Former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson signed with the Oakland Raiders on Monday, the club announced.

Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle first reported on the deal, with Ben Goessling of ESPN adding it's a two-year contract that can be voided after one year.

Tom Pelissero of USA Today added that the first year of the deal is worth $5.25 million with $5 million guaranteed.

Patterson, 25, has never quite lived up to being the No. 29 selection overall in the 2013 NFL draft. In 2016, he caught 52 passes for 453 yards and two touchdowns, adding a kick-return touchdown as well. While he has flashed explosive, game-breaking ability at times, he hasn't consistently produced throughout his career.

For Patterson, leaving Minnesota was likely indicative of one factor: a lack of playing time.

"Two years I spent damn near on the sideline," Patterson said in late January, per Conor Orr of "That's never a good feeling for any player. No player wants to go through that. I need to know if I'm going to play or not. If not, I'll take my talents elsewhere."

Certainly, signing Patterson means Oakland will be expected to utilize him and get the most of his unique skill set.
