The Buccaneers have done a bit of salary cap management this morning, as Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune reports (via Twitter) that the team has restructured the contract of tight end Brandon Myers. As Cummings notes, more Bucs players could soon follow suit since “many want to stay.”
Myers hasn’t come close to matching his production with the Raiders in 2012, when he caught 79 passes for 806 yards and four touchdowns. In two seasons since, Myers has compiled only 65 catches for 691 yards and four touchdowns with the Giants and Bucs. Despite the lack of production, Myers has still earned 429 snaps this season, splitting time with fellow tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
In March, Myers signed a two-year deal with Tampa Bay worth $4MM. This came only a year after he signed a one-year, $2.25MM deal with the Giants.
