Jakobi Meyers’ tenure with the New England Patriots will go down in infamy after starring in one of the most hilarious and head-scratching final plays in NFL history.
The Pats faced the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Stadium and ran a final play to try and win the game before overtime.
Meyers got the football and inexplicably threw it right into a rival’s hands, the ball was returned for a score, and the rest is history.

So, it’s only fitting to see that fans are remembering that hilarious play now that Meyers has officially signed with the Raiders.
This considered as tampering right???

Meyers recently agreed to a three-year deal worth $33 million, including $21 million fully guaranteed.
He’ll now get to play for Josh McDaniels — his former Offensive Coordinator in New England — again after one season apart.
He’ll also be teammates with Chandler Jones, the very same guy who picked off that hilarious lateral pass aimed at Mac Jones before taking it 48 yards for the game-winning score.
The 26-year-old hit free agency for the first time in his career.
The Patriots signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2019, and he became a key contributor to their passing game.
Since 2019, the NC State product has made 60 appearances (39 starts) and hauled in 235 receptions for 2,758 yards and eight scores, leading the all-time ranks in receptions and yards for an undrafted free agent in franchise history.
That’s impressive for a guy who was actually a quarterback when he entered college, and he’ll give McDaniels and Jimmy G another versatile weapon to work with.NEXT: The Raiders Are Signing A Former Patriots WR
