Brandon Myers finished the 2015 season with 12 receptions for 127 yards and no touchdowns over 11 games.
The 12 catches equaled Myers' second-lowest total of his career, a figure he initially reached in a Raider uniform back in 2010. The 30-year-old briefly took on a more expanded role than originally planned in the season's early going after a shoulder injury to starter Austin Seferian-Jenkins. However, the emergence of second-year pro Cameron Brate gradually seemed to render Myers irrelevant in the passing game, essentially negating his sole value to the Bucs. The veteran was absent from the stat sheet in Weeks 13 and 14, the last two games he was active for. Myers was then was a healthy inactive over the last four contests once the tight end position was back at full strength. Despite the fact that he's under contract for next season, Myers appears to be strong candidate for release this offseason, particularly with a cheaper and younger alternative in Brate available.
Brandon Myers is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears.
Myers will be inactive for a fourth straight week. He's plunged to fourth on the depth chart at tight end, and with the Bucs fully healthy at the position, there's not really a pressing need to have him available for games.
Brandon Myers (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Saints.
Myers will be a healthy scratch for the second straight week, suggesting that Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Luke Stocker and Cameron Brate are all ahead of him on the Tampa Bay tight end depth chart.
Brandon Myers played on 30 snaps in the Week 10 victory over the Cowboys, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The veteran was second in tight end snaps on the team to Luke Stocker, but the latter was once again shut out of the stat sheet. Myers' playing time appears stable as long as Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) remains out with an injury that has taken much longer than expected to fully recover from.
Brandon Myers secured three of four targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 10-6 victory over the Cowboys.
Myers likely thought his starting days in Tampa were over entering the season, with second-year standout Austin Seferian-Jenkins ready to take the reins of the top tight end job. Instead, Seferian-Jenkins' multi-week shoulder injury has continued to afford the veteran Myers playing time, and he has been solid as a dependable outlet option for rookie Jameis Winston. The 35 yards were a season high mark for Myers, while his three catches equaled his highest number of receptions he's tallied in a game this season. Myers may continue to receive starter's snaps in Week 11 if Seferian-Jenkins remains sidelined.
