NBC SportsThe Athletic's Mark Kaboly believes Steelers RB Cordarrelle Patterson "will likely have a bigger role than being a specialist."

Patterson is arguably the greatest kick returner of all time and was signed shortly after the league amended its return rules. It's clear his primary value will come on special teams. However, Kaboly points out that the Steelers gave him $6 million over two years. That's more than just special teams money, even if he's one of the best to ever do it. Patterson also found success in Arthur Smith's system in 2022, rushing for 695 yards and eight touchdowns on 144 attempts. A thigh issue cost him a few games early in the 2023 season and he struggled to find a role upon returning. Though he still projects for distant RB3 duties in Pittsburgh, Patterson could be a minor thorn in the side of Jaylen Warren drafters this year.
