ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons addressed one of their biggest offseason priorities by agreeing to terms on a new contract with all-purpose standout Cordarrelle Patterson.

The 31-year-old Patterson confirmed the deal on his Twitter account, saying money was not his primary concern.  

ESPN reports that Patterson agreed to a two-year, $10.5 million deal.

The re-signing of Patterson was a bit of good news for the Falcons after their pursuit of quarterback Deshaun Watson ended with him choosing a trade to the Cleveland Browns.

Patterson was a surprising offensive star for the Falcons, lining up at running back, receiver and kickoff returner.
