The New England Patriots are coming off a season in which they missed the playoffs for the second time in the last three years.
This is new territory for the Patriots’ fanbase, especially considering the continued success they found under Tom Brady.
After selecting Mac Jones in the first round of the 2021 draft, many were hopeful that he could bring the organization to its former glory.
However, he has underwhelmed in his first two seasons.
This could be due to a variety of factors, but many have pointed to the receiving corps as a reason for concern.
Heading into the 2023 season, the Patriots could be without Jakobi Meyers if they are unable to get a deal done.
According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, “they haven’t made very much progress, and it sounds like Meyers will hit the market when it officially opens March 15th.”

Meyers was the Patriots’ top target-getter in 2022, with 96 in total.
For comparison, the next closest was Rhamondre Stevenson with 88, who is a running back.
If Meyers does leave the team during the offseason, the Patriots will be in desperate need at the position.
Given the fact that Jones has struggled thus far in his career, surrounding him with adequate receiving help is one of the quickest solutions for the Patriots.
The Patriots currently hold the 14th and 46th overall picks in April’s upcoming draft.
Will they be able to find a valuable contributor at this needed position through the draft, or will they elect to find a free agent instead?
