Oakland Raiders could lose tight end Brandon Myers

Tight end Brandon Myers could leave the Oakland Raiders during the off-season. The assumption is based on the fact that Myers had his best season so far in his career and is a free agent.

Bleacher Report web article reported on Sunday that Myers could be getting some nice offers from other teams due to the fact that the tight end really showed some numbers this season.

Last year, the Raiders lost running back Michael Bush to the Chicago Bears for almost nothing, leaving Darren McFadden, who was the favorite anyway, to do most of the work from the back. The same could happen with Myers this offseason.

The article reports on the fact that Myers was a backup to Zack Miller and Kevin Boss since he was drafted in 2009.

Both Miller and Boss are no longer with the Raiders. This year, it was Myers's turn to start and did an awesome job. Perhaps, he was one of the best players for the Raiders this year.

Brandon Myers had 79 catches for 806 yards this season. His performance included 11 games with at least four catches, and got his first four career touchdowns as well.

It would be great if the Oakland Raiders could keep Myers, but, with the salary cap that the team is facing and the fact that the tight end had a spectacular season, he could be out of reach as well.
