Bucs on the Bubble: Brandon Myers

In our series of discussing the Bucs veterans who may be on the roster bubble, today we talk about TE Brandon Myers.

Reason to Keep:
A brief glimpse at the Bucs' roster would show you how strong they are at tight end. Quite frankly, the Bucs are loaded at the position. While it looked like they had drafted their full back in Dan Vitale, the Bucs ended up giving him number 86, which typically goes to tight ends or wide receivers. Dirk Koetter may be looking at an offense without one true full back, and open it up to his tight ends being versatile to play both positions, which means keeping more tight ends.

Reason to Cut:
With Cameron Brate, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Luke Stocker, and Dan Vitale with the inside track to final roster spots, the numbers game could just play against Myers this year. When Seferian-Jenkins has dealt with one of his several injuries, the Bucs went to guys like Stocker and Brate as Myers faded away last season.

Final Outcome:
Personally, I'm a fan of Myers. I think he's a solid veteran who simply understands the NFL, understands how to get open, and can be a reliable target for a young quarterback. With that said, I think the numbers game plays against Myers, and the Bucs allow him to find another team to play with. It wouldn't surprise me if Myers was among the first group of cuts to allow him plenty of time to latch on with another team.
