Jakobi Meyers has agreed to a three-year deal with the Las Vegas Raiders, sources revealed to ESPN on Tuesday. The wide receiver’s deal, worth $33 million, includes a guaranteed $21 million.

Meyers was snapped up by the Raiders as an unrestricted free agent; the first time that he had been in this predicament since his time as an undrafted free agent out of NC State in 2019. He was most recently at the New England Patriots, where he played in 60 regular season games and made 235 receptions for 2,758 yards and eight touchdowns. This is the most career receptions and yards for an undrafted free agent in Patriots history.

In 2022, Meyers played for the Patriots on a $3.98 million restricted free-agent contract. This succeeded his initial three-year, $1.76 million contract with the team that included a $10,000 signing bonus.

Recruited to NC State as a quarterback, Meyers had transitioned to the role of wide receiver, where he played the last three seasons for the Patriots. He still uses his old quarterback skills when it comes to trick plays.
