Oakland Raiders wide receiver and special teamer Cordarrelle Patterson has been traded to the New England Patriots, as first reported by Barstool Sports podcast "Pardon My Take".

A person familiar with the deal said Sunday the deal will become official after Patterson passes a physical.

The Patriots used the picks they obtained from the Vikings to take linebacker Jamie Collins, cornerback Logan Ryan, wide receiver Josh Boyce and running back LeGarrette Blount, whom they acquired in a trade for the seventh-round pick.

Per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, the Patriots will swap their fifth-round pick for a Raiders sixth-round pick in order to make the move.

A multipurpose player capable of big plays on both special teams and offense, Patterson had 309 yards receiving, 121 yards rushing and 538 return yards with the Raiders last season. His career average of 30.2 yards per return ranks second all-time to Hall of Famer Gale Sayers' 30.6 mark.

The last time the Pats acquired an Oakland Raider wideout who initially began his career as a Minnesota Vikings first-round pick, it turned out pretty well for Randy Moss and New England.

In exchange for Patterson, the Patriots will give the Raiders a fifth-round pick. He has five touchdowns on returns and last season averaged 28.3 yards on 19 returns.

The Raiders had the best average starting field position after kickoffs last season in the National Football League, while the Patriots ranked fourth.
