Brandon Myers could be the next member of the Silver and Black exodus. Already the Raiders have seen plenty of past contributors depart with Matt Shaughnessy most recently joining the Arizona Cardinals. Now comes word that the team’s leading receiver for 2012 is exploring his future employment options elsewhere.
With few funds available, Reggie McKenzie has had to sit and watch as more and more holes open up on the Raiders roster. Unable to compete with the cash offered to Desmond Bryant and Philip Wheeler, McKenzie could once again find himself priced out of the Myers sweepstakes.
Despite the very public struggles of Oakland’s offense under Greg Knapp Myers was able to thrive. His career year of 79 catches for 806 yards should equate to a long-term deal with plenty of bonus incentives. Among the accomplishments of Myers in 2012 he tied the franchise records for most receptions in a single game. Not bad for a sixth round pick originally thought to be a blocking tight end at the NFL level.
