Birthday Present Coming For Brandon Myers

September 2nd, 2016

MyersTrying to make a roster as a veteran tight end is a good situation when Tweety and erratic Austin Seferian-Jenkins is in the mix.

So Joe is confident veteran Brandon Myers will get great news for his 31st birthday on Sunday. He’ll make the Tampa Bay roster and enjoy a paycheck for his eighth NFL season.

After all, it was ASJ the Bucs were exposing to injury during the final preseason game Wednesday. It was ASJ chosen to put his body on the line against soon-to-be baggage handlers, gym teachers, Hooters cooks, grad students and bouncers.

Myers and his 192 career catches were on the bench.

A Raiders sixth-round pick in 2009, Myers is easily forgettable for Bucs fans. He hasn’t done much since being one of the key guys signed in March 2014, part of the giant wave of early cash spent when the free agency dinner bell rang that year.

But Myers can block and catch, and given the presence of ASJ, plus the Bucs being a little banged up on the offensive line and Luke Stocker known for being a little fragile, Joe believes Myers is a lock for his third Tampa Bay season.

    Does Joe have inside info or is this simply a guess and another opportunity to take a shot at ASJ….
    I think if Myers is kept then Vitale will be put on the practice squad.

    Sure is a lot of emotion these days tied up in discussions of third string tight ends like ASJ. That comment string yesterday was hilarious.

    Does he have any catches for more than 10 yards since ’14?

    Do we need more than 3 tight ends? I know stocker also doubles as a fullback. Does Myers play special teams?

  5. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Honestly Myers is overpaid for a backup

    Better to have a talented, erratic idiot in ASJ than a solid, reliable guy that can’t even get open in Myers. As a fan I’m sick of Bucs rosters filled with untalented so-called “solid” players. You don’t win with players like that. You need guys who can make a contested catch, stretch the field, get open and who have speed.

    Let’s face it…with Brate, Stocker and Myers the Bucs have three slow TE’s who couldn’t change a game if their lives depended on it. I’m sure they’re all solid, stand-up guys with tons of knowledge and leadership qualities blah, blah, yada, yada, so on and so forth. But can they physically do what ASJ can do? Nope, they can’t. Never will, either.
