Jakobi Meyers, Patriots wide receiver, wants a long-term deal in New England but is currently signing a one year contract.

Adam Schefter was told by Meyers’ agents that Meyers had signed his one year tender offer.

The Patriots offered Meyers a $3.986 million contract for one year to keep him after he became a restricted-free agent in March. Meyers could have been signed to another contract by another team, but the Patriots could match it. If the Patriots didn’t, New England would have needed to send a second-round draft selection.

Meyers signed with the Patriots in 2019 as an undrafted agent and has steadily grown his role in the offense. Last year, he was the Patriots’ top-ranked receiver with 83 catches for 866 yards.

Meyers and the Patriots can still negotiate a long-term extension. He’ll be an unrestricted, free agent after the season if he doesn’t sign a new contract.
