Meyers, who went undrafted in 2019, had 26 catches for 359 yards in his first and only season with Brady as his quarterback.
During the 2019 regular season, Meyers was partially responsible for a brutal mistake against the Houston Texans. Instead of avoiding that moment, he accepted accountability and adjusted his game.
In a recent interview with Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports, Meyers said he had no choice but to learn from his mistakes as soon as possible. That’s because he didn’t want to let Brady down while they were teammates.
“I had to learn fast,” Meyers said, via NBC Sports. “I didn’t really have an excuse. That was a guy who’d been playing for two decades, you know what I mean? I didn’t get the liberty of, ‘Oh, he’ll catch on one day.’ I came in with a first-round receiver, N’Keal. Tom Brady, future Hall of Famer. I had to pick it up real fast or I wouldn’t be here long. It definitely pushed the tempo and I’m happy it worked out the way it did.”

Meyers showed a lot of growth in 2020, hauling in 59 passes for 729 yards.
On Oct. 3, Meyers will have the chance to show Brady what he learned from him when the Patriots host the Buccaneers on Sunday Night Football.
