2014 NFL Free Agency: Dimitri Patterson visiting Jets

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Former Miami Dolphins cornerback Dimitri Patterson is visiting the New York Jets today. Patterson spent most of the 2013 season sidelined with a groin injury for the Miami Dolphins.

The New York Jets are desperately in need of cornerback help, and they could be looking within the AFC East for the answer. Former Miami Dolphins cornerback Dimitri Patterson is heading north to visit with the Jets, according to a report from Pro Football Talk.

Patterson had four interceptions last season for the Dolphins, while only playing in six contests. Slated to be the starting cornerback opposite Brent Grimes, Patterson injured his groin and was in-and-out of the lineup throughout most of the year as he tried to recover. Nolan Carroll, who signed with the Philadelphia Eagles this free agency period, started in Patterson's absence.

Drafted in 2005 by the Washington Redskins, Patterson has been a journeyman defensive back, fighting injuries throughout his career. After one year with Washington, he spent the 2006 season in Minnesota, the 2007 and a part of the 2008 season with the Kansas City Chiefs, 2009 through 2010 with the Philadelphia Eagles, and the 2011 and part of the 2012 seasons with the Cleveland Browns. When Cleveland waived him late in 2012, Miami claimed him to provide depth at the cornerback position.

The Dolphins released him March 10.
