I like Jakobi Meyers a lot and his productivity over the last couple of years, with subpar quarterback play is impressive. Over the last two seasons, he’s averaged 75 receptions, and 835 yards and totaled eight touchdowns, six of those coming this past season.
Putting up these numbers in a lackluster offense, with no real threat in the receiving corps and average, at best quarterback play and the ceiling for Meyers in a Buffalo Bills offense is very high. He played primarily out of the slot position, which would allow the Bills to move Shakir outside, opposite Stefon Diggs and Davis could go back to being that fourth receiver option.
My biggest concern here is the cost. Meyers is one of the better receivers in this year’s crop of free agents, at least in my opinion. So can the Buffalo Bills afford him, perhaps? I am no longer amazed by the way general managers in this league finagle the contract numbers to fit under the salary cap.
For someone like Meyers, I could see a team coming and overpaying him for his services, pricing the Bills out of contention. Then again, depends on if Meyers is looking for a big payday or if he’s looking for a championship-caliber team, like the Bills.
