Veteran Tight End Brandon Myers Is A BuccaneerMarch 11th, 2014
Depth, experience, durability and production were added to the Bucs’ tight end corps today with the signing of former Giants and Raiders tight end Brandon Myers. He caught 126 balls over the past two seasons, including 47 catches for 522 yards with New York last year.
A sixth-round pick of Oakland in 2009, Myers blossomed in 2012 and bolted for the Giants where he earned $2.25 million last season in the first year of a four-year deal. The Giants cut him and now he’s a Buccaneer.
ESPN reports he’ll earn a $2 million this year with the Bucs.
Joe can’t speak much for Myers’ blocking, but he is a bigger body at 6-4, 250 pounds. With Myers, Wright and Tom Crabtree, and Luke Stocker in the final year of his four-year rookie deal, the Bucs at least have a diverse mix of experience and talent at the position.
