Former Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson<a href=""></a>  is trying to endear himself to a new fan base in Oakland. And the lightning-quick return man appears to be off to a good start.

The former first-round pick, who joined the Oakland Raiders this offseason after four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, recently served as the emcee for the Raiders 2017 UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Prom. And from <a href="">Jason Verrett Youth Jersey</a> the looks of it, a good time was had by all.

The Raiders posted a highlight video of the event, which featured Patterson mingling with the attendees, escorting them in on the red carpet and overall just having a great time. Check it out:

Patterson, who widely is considered one of the most dangerous return men in the league, is hoping this fresh start in Oakland will produce better results as a wide receiver after a mostly disappointing tenure with the Vikings in that regard.

He earned two Pro Bowl appearances and two All-Pro honors in 2013 and 2016 for Minnesota, but has 1,316 yards receiving through his four-year career.

Patterson earned All-SEC honors for<a href=""></a>  the Vols in 2012. He signed a two-year, $8.5 million free-agent deal with the Raiders in March after leading the league in kickoff-return average (31.7 yards) in 2016.
