  • TE Brandon Myers Says He Chose NY Giants Over Nine Other Teams

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/05/08/...e-other-teams/

    Excerpt: "Fans were shocked to see Martellus Bennett leave the New York Giants after one season to take a four-year deal with the Chicago Bears back in March. But New York Giants General Manager Jerry Reese didn't panic. Instead, he looked to the market and found a fresh, new face that is up and coming in the league.

    Reese quickly landed former Oakland Raiders tight end Brandon Myers on a four-year deal, although only the first year is guaranteed with the team.


    In Oakland, Myers had 79 catches for 806 yards and four touchdowns playing in a lackluster Raider offense and will get the chance to be an even bigger part of an explosive offense with the Giants. And on Monday, Mike Hlas of the Eastern Iowa Gazette talked to the Giants new tight end about playing for the Big Blue, the Raiders and his college days at Iowa.

    "This is actually my sixth offense in five years," Myers said. "There's new language to figure out and it's been a learning experience for me. But the coaches have been great and I will pick it all up as I go."


    Myers also addressed the free agent process and why he chose the Giants over several other teams.

    "It was a wild process in free agency. I wasn't considered one of the top guys who got signed the first day, so I had to sit back and wait. I had about 10 teams interested, but once I heard the Giants were involved, I jumped at the chance to sign and got a deal done quickly," he said." Read more...

    Nice. I'd wondered how they'd managed to land him. Plenty of crappy teams could've paid him more.

      Didn't Boss have something to do with him coming here?

        When Bennett left people made it like all was lost. This guy seems to be just as capable and doesn't have all the question marks. Seriously, one would have to worry about giving Bennett that big pay day.

          I think he might have been a bit swayed by how the Martellus Bennett situation played out (getting the nice contract from Chicago after a 1 year deal).

          And Boss was pimping us.

            At the time Bennett was lost, we didn't know who his replacement was going to be. Bennett was the second most productive receiver last season after Cruz.

                I'm not sure why people are confusing Bennett and Graham? Do they both eat Captain Crunch cereal?

                      I knew we wouldnt resign Bennett. I knew he would want more money then we were willing to pay. Myers is a GREAT replacement. He needs to be working with Eli ASAP.

                        I knew we were in trouble when he said he would offer a home town discount...

                        Stand with Cruz!

                          This is the way of the Giants these days. Everyone comes from far and wide to work with Mike Pope (because having that on their resume is instantly worth an extra million per year elsewhere), we work them for a year or two, and then spin them off to another team. Though I do think that whole "boss was pimping us" may be true...

                          I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                              Boss woudl have had the same prob if he stayed on the Giants. His biggest issue was he is/was one hard hit from riding the pine for extended periods of time. His head has been wacked too much. It happened in Oakland it would have happened in NY
