This is definitely an underpay honestly, Kirk money wasn't likely, but if he held out for the best offer he probably gets $15M a year with $20M+ guaranteed from someone. This deal both in $ and timing certainly indicates a guy who wanted to play in a certain system for certain guys.
I agree completely. I thought he'd get north of 15mil/per, and considering we've heard no smoke about him meeting/talking to other teams, haven't heard about interest from other teams, I think there's a real possibility he told Rosenhaus "get me the best deal you can in Vegas, I'm going there."
Anything else makes no sense. He had the opportunity to set the market for WR's in FA this year, the Pats were in a no-leverage spot and as much as I think BB is a disaster when it comes to the WR position, I'd be shocked if the Pats weren't willing to beat/match that offer, even given their history at re-signing UDFA's in the past (JC Jackson, Butler, etc.). This just seems like a guy who wanted to go to a particular place, play with a particular team and coaches and he took it. Good for him.
I also don't think Jakobi is a #1, and in Vegas, he'll be the 3rd, 4th option in that passing attack, which is what he should have been here.
But hey, we basically took Agholor from the Raiders for the same money that the Raiders just gave Meyers, so there's that, or something.
