The Bears are expected to sign free agent kick return specialist Cordarrelle Patterson according to numerous reports.

Patterson is regarded by most people to be the premier kick returner in the NFL. In his career with the Vikings and the Patriots he has averaged 30 yards per return.

Patterson will also add depth to the Bears’ receiving corps. He hauled in 21 receptions, three of them for touchdowns last season with the Super bowl Champion Patriots.

The Bears are not allowed to officially announce any free agent signings until the start of the new NFL year on Wednesday.
