Last season the Raiders were the kings of the garbage time world. Every week they would be down by 2-3 scores by half and it was time to throw, throw, and throw some more. Myers was a major benefactor of that garbage time and put up nice stats as he finished with 79 receptions for 806 yards last season for Oakland, the fourth-most catches in the league by a tight end.
Brandon Myers and Eli Manning are hard at work jelling at Giants camp and all indications are that the two are getting along just fine. Eli loves to use the TE and with the options on the outside, Myers will be able to find tons of room underneath.
“It’s complex, but it’s good once you start to get things down, get on the same page, learn all the calls,” Myers said. “We’re out here practicing every day and trying to get the little things down.”
Myers only had 4 TDs last season, but Eli should increase on those numbers even if his receptions and yards may take a dip with all the weapons in NY.
“He’s a proven winner,” Myers said. “He has great command of the offense, so anytime you can do what you’re supposed to do and be in the right position and be on the same page as Eli, he’s gonna find you.”
Eli and TE coach Mike Pope made Jake Ballard useable and Martellus Bennett a nice fantasy option last season. They will get the most out of their new TE.
“He’s done a great job so far getting open versus our defense, making good reads,” Manning said. “He’s off to a great start, and looking forward to a big year from him.”
