For Immediate Release: March 3, 2008

The New Orleans Saints announced today that they have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with unrestricted free agent wide receiver David Patten. The announcement was made by Saints’ Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.


Patten spent the 2006 season with the Saints after signing as an unrestricted free agent. The 5-10, 190-pound veteran of 11 NFL seasons caught 54 passes for 792 yards for a 14.7 receiving average last season, along with three touchdowns. Patten’s 54 receptions were the third-most on the team while his 792 receiving yards were the second highest on the squad, and he registered three-100 yard receiving games. His top game in 2007 came on a Monday Night Football affair on December 10 at Atlanta when he recorded nine receptions for 122 yards and a score.

“David stepped into our lineup immediately last season and provided immediate leadership and he was a consistent and dependable target,” said Loomis. “He is a consummate professional and his work ethic and leadership skills, coupled with the things he can do on the field made his re-signing a priority for us.”

Good news.

I still think its a very strong possibility we draft a WR/KR/PR in the mid-rounds, but I like the fact that we have some continuity on Offense.

Like it. And I hope Trent Green is physically fit to play and we upgrade our backup qb position.

Great move.. was the only WR that actually produced last year besides Colston. I love our moves so far...not just with the FA signings, but we are keeping the guys we should keep as well.
