Brandon Myers Thinks He Will Be Leaving Raiders

Raiders tight end Brandon Myers made some comments his morning that may not be good news to Raiders fans.

Myers, who had 79 receptions for 806 yards and four touchdowns last season, thinks he will be signing with another team via free agency.

“Obviously, I’d like to stay,” Myers said. “I’ve got a lot of friendships and know the coaches really well. They took a chance on me when I got drafted. I’d like to be there but it’s not looking like that right now. I guess I just have to stay patient and figure some stuff out. We’re pretty confident I’ll have ajob here in a couple of weeks, but I’ll just try to sti back and not stress about it.

Myers is optimistic that the Raiders will give him a offer, but “[the Raiders] had a conversation at the combine and it didn’t sound like they were ready to do that.”

Should Myers bolt for another team, this would open up another huge hole in the Raiders roster. His 79 receptions were the most for any franchise tight end since Todd Christensen in 1986, and the Raiders don’t have another viable option on their team to replace him.
