After a forgettable season with the Giants, tight end Brandon Myers will look to return to his 2012 form as a member of the Buccaneers. Myers signed a two-year deal with the Bucs on Tuesday. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Myers' contract is worth about $4 million with incentives on top of that.
Myers never seemed to fit with the Giants after signing a similarly cheap one-year deal with them last March. He looked lost while running routes in the Giants' offense and saw his production drop precipitously from 2012. That year, Myers caught 79 passes for 806 yards and four touchdowns with the Raiders. Myers caught just 47 passes for 522 yards with the Giants.
The Bucs have Tim Wright on the roster, but they wanted to get another pass-catching tight end who could also block. I don't think this fills that need. What it does is steal fantasy value from both tight ends. You can forget about Wright and Myers in your summer drafts.
