Patriots’ wide receiver Jakobi Meyers wants a long-term contract in New England, but for now he’s signing a one-year deal.

Meyers signed his one-year tender offer, his agents told Adam Schefter.

It’s a one-year, $3.986 million contract that the Patriots offered Meyers to keep him when he became a restricted free agent in March. Another team could have signed Meyers to a contract, but the Patriots could have matched it, and if the Patriots hadn’t, that team would have had to send New England a second-round draft pick.

After signing with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2019, Meyers has steadily increased his role in the offense, and last year he led the team with 83 catches and 866 yards.

The Patriots and Meyers can continue to negotiate a long-term extension. If he doesn’t sign a new deal, he’ll become an unrestricted free agent after this season.

  1. Good player…..best WR on the team. Probably a #3 on teams with a competent GM.

  2. High IQ with great hands. Catches everything thrown his way and goes fearlessly across the middle. He’s worth way more, but I understand what NE did.

  3. I like Jakobi the person and his stats look impressive on paper. There’s just something about his routes and catches that Just doesn’t have that “pro” feel.

  4. Getting the sense that there’s a reason why the Patriots won’t commit to him longer term. I think we’ll see a lot of changes in 2023.

  5. Belichick believers better wish that he won’t contribute much in the coming season, because if he does, he will ask lot more to make up the loss in 2022. It will be a big embarrassment to Belichick.

    I’d be shocked if he’s even given a contract extension beyond this year…my guess is he’s a UFA next year, he’s a great story, great hands, but he is slow & can’t separate…. His abilities are a dime a dozen…. Great depth player in case of injuries, but nothing more than a 5th or 6th option in the rotation….. 2 TD’s in 3 years & a YAC of 2.9 in 2021….
