ICYMI: Kendrick Bourne Sets 2022 Goal For Himself, Fellow Pats WRs
After career years for both of the New England Patriots’ leading wide receivers of a year ago, it appears the duo has even higher expectations for 2022.
On Tuesday, Kendrick Bourne took to Instagram and shared a photo of himself and Jakobi Meyers alongside a caption that appears to be one of their goals on the field this fall, each reaching 1,000 receiving yards.
“1k each for me and my dog?” Bourne wrote in the post and tagged Meyers’ account. “What y’all think?!!”
Fellow wideout Devante Parker later commented on the post, joking “just save some for me and we good”.

Last season, both Bourne and Meyers each recorded over 800 total receiving yards, so reaching their goal is quite realistic.
The last time the New England Patriots had two receivers reach the 1,000-yard mark in the same season? 2017 with Rob Gronkowski and Brandin Cooks.
Running back Damien Harris also chimed in on the post, joking Bill Belichick won’t be happy to see a player discussing individual stats.
“Bill gone show this in squad,” Harris said.
For now, the ambitious goals of the Patriots wide receiver corps look great for the growth of second-year starting quarterback Mac Jones.
