Being a smart young man who knows what side his bread is buttered on, Cordarrelle Patterson is wasting no time bonding with the guy who may very well hold his future earning power in his hands.
As the first step in building what he hopes will be a very friendly and fruitful – and financially lucrative – relationship with new Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater, Cordarrelle took Teddy out to watch a Minnesota Wild playoff game.

I don’t know how into hockey Teddy Bridgewater is, but I know Patterson is a huge hockey fan.
He’s been a huge hockey fan only for about three weeks but that’s more than enough.
The important thing is that Patterson has totally embraced the Minnesota experience. And he wants Teddy to embrace it with him.
And when Teddy wins the starting QB job – which could happen as early as this year – Cordarrelle hopes all this early bonding will blossom into a great on-field relationship.
Patterson wants to get paid and he knows Teddy is the man to make that happen. So yeah, bond away young men.
You guys are going to need each other.
