The Facts: Mac Jones has a valuable target likely returning for the 2022 season. The New England Patriots are using a second-round restricted free-agent tender on Meyers, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero added the second-round tender is worth $3.986 million.
Diehards Line: Meyers is still able to sign a contract with another team, however, any team that signs Meyers will have to send the Pats a second-round pick if New England decides not to match the deal. The most likely scenario is that Meyers continues his ascension in Foxborough, where he led the Patriots in receptions last season (83) and yards (866). Meyers also tallied the first two touchdown catches of his career in 2021.
