The signing of Patton has been rumored since the weekend after he visited the team. No contract details have surfaced as of yet.
Patton brings more veteran depth at the WR position which is needed with the recent departure of Brandon Marshall.
It’s likely that new offensive coordinator John Morton helped in the decision to sign the WR as Patton played for him while Morton was in San Francisco.
