Veteran wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson visited with the Falcons on Wednesday (Twitter linkvia’s Mike Garafolo). If all goes well, the accomplished kick returner is expected to sign fairly quickly. 

“I’m going to miss my boys in Chicago,” Patterson tweeted, an indication that he’s on the verge of signing with Atlanta.

If signed, Patterson will provide new special teams coordinator Marquice Williams with a dynamic return man capable of breaking games wide open.
