“Former Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers Joins Las Vegas Raiders in Multi-Year Deal, Boosts Offensive Firepower”

Jakobi Meyers, a former wide receiver for the New England Patriots, has agreed to a three-year, $33 million deal with the Las Vegas Raiders. The signing was announced by various sources, including ESPN, The Athletic, and NBC Sports.

Meyers played for the Patriots for three seasons, tallying 1,258 receiving yards and six touchdowns. He was released by the team in a salary cap move earlier this offseason.

The Raiders have been looking to add to their wide receiver corps, and Meyers could provide a boost to their offense. The team has already signed veteran John Brown and drafted young receivers Bryan Edwards and Henry Ruggs III over the past two years.

The addition of Meyers could make the Raiders’ passing attack more potent, as he is known for his precise route-running and reliable hands. The team will be hoping that Meyers can help quarterback Derek Carr lead the Raiders to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.

Meyers is expected to join the Raiders’ offseason program soon, where he will work with the team’s coaches and get acclimated to his new teammates. The Raiders are scheduled to open their 2023 season against the Baltimore Ravens on September 10.
