NFL Rumors: Jacoby Myers Signs $4 Million Bid With Patriots, Eyes Long-Term Deal

Jacoby Myers will be part of the New England Patriots’ plans in 2022 – but what about beyond that?

The Patriots wide receiver has signed a $3.99 million second round bid for the 2022 season, Adam Schefter from ESPN I mentioned Monday. Shifter added that Myers’ clients, Drew Rosenhouse and Robert Bailey, are in “ongoing conversations” with New England about a new deal for Myers.

The Patriots offered Myers that tender at the start of the free agency in March. Had another team offered Myers a free agency contract, New England could have matched it or received the second-round draft if Myers had signed elsewhere.

Myers has until Wednesday to sign his bid, and the Patriots will likely be happy with that. The 25-year-old led New England in receptions (83) and yards (866) last season while emerging as McJones’ favorite target.

While offense has gone through some changes this season with the addition of wide receiver DeVante Parker and the departure of offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Meyers must once again solidify offensive power in his fourth NFL season while serving as Jones’ reliable weapon.

With Nelson Agholor’s bloated contract out on the books in 2023, the Patriots should seriously consider locking in the Meyers long-term to avoid losing him on free agency for next year.
