Since the onset of free agency, the return of Patterson seemed inevitable for Big Blue. He played well as part of a rotation in 2013, and having lost Linval Joseph to the Minnesota Vikings, bringing back the veteran defensive tackle seemed like the most sensible option for depth. Of course, Patterson legitimately wanted to return, too.
“I waited a long time to get into this locker room," Patterson said in February. “Hopefully I’m back next season.”
Financial details on Patterson's new contract were not immediately made available.
