The NFL offseason is not just the time for players to change clubs but also to make other business decisions as well. Among them is possibly changing representation, something that New England Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers has apparently done as well. According to a social media post by Drew Rosenhaus, Meyers will be represented by his agency moving forward.
A former undrafted free agent now entering his third year in the NFL, Meyers previously worked with Young Money APAA Sports — the agency that also has current Patriots players Devin McCourty, Jonathan Jones and Matt LaCosse under contract. Moving forward, however, Rosenhaus and his team will do contract negotiations and the like on his behalf.
Meyers therefore joins a group of Patriots repped by the veteran agent that includes five of the team’s free agency signings: tight end Jonnu Smith, defensive tackle Davon Godchaux, defensive tackle Jalen Mills and offensive tackle Trent Brown were all added via unrestricted free agency, while cornerback J.C. Jackson was retained as a restricted free agent after signing his second-round tender last week.
Rosenhaus has plenty of experience working with New England’s front office — he also represents ex-Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, for example — and Meyers is now joining him while entering a contract year. Like J.C. Jackson this offseason, he will be a restricted free agent in 2022.
