Myers finished the 2015 season with 12 receptions for 127 yards and no touchdowns over 11 games.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 12 catches equaled Myers' second-lowest total of his career, a figure he initially reached in a Raider uniform back in 2010. The 30-year-old briefly took on a more expanded role than originally planned in the season's early going after a shoulder injury to starter Austin Seferian-Jenkins. However, the emergence of second-year pro Cameron Brate gradually seemed to render Myers irrelevant in the passing game, essentially negating his sole value to the Bucs. The veteran was absent from the stat sheet in Weeks 13 and 14, the last two games he was active for. Myers was then was a healthy inactive over the last four contests once the tight end position was back at full strength. Despite the fact that he's under contract for next season, Myers appears to be strong candidate for release this offseason, particularly with a cheaper and younger alternative in Brate available.

Myers is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Myers will be inactive for a fourth straight week. He's plunged to fourth on the depth chart at tight end, and with the Bucs fully healthy at the position, there's not really a pressing need to have him available for games.

Myers (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Saints.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Myers will be a healthy scratch for the second straight week, suggesting that Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Luke Stocker and Cameron Brate are all ahead of him on the Tampa Bay tight end depth chart.

Myers (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Falcons.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Myers will take a seat as a healthy scratch, as both Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) and Luke Stocker (back) are active for the contest. Myers logged just 10 snaps Week 12, and hasn't been targeted in back-to-back games, so he likely wasn't in line for a significant role in the offense anyway.

Myers played on 30 snaps in the Week 10 victory over the Cowboys, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran was second in tight end snaps on the team to Luke Stocker, but the latter was once again shut out of the stat sheet. Myers' playing time appears stable as long as Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) remains out with an injury that has taken much longer than expected to fully recover from.

Myers secured three of four targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 10-6 victory over the Cowboys.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Myers likely thought his starting days in Tampa were over entering the season, with second-year standout Austin Seferian-Jenkins ready to take the reins of the top tight end job. Instead, Seferian-Jenkins' multi-week shoulder injury has continued to afford the veteran Myers playing time, and he has been solid as a dependable outlet option for rookie Jameis Winston. The 35 yards were a season high mark for Myers, while his three catches equaled his highest number of receptions he's tallied in a game this season. Myers may continue to receive starter's snaps in Week 11 if Seferian-Jenkins remains sidelined.

Myers logged 24 snaps in the Week 9 loss to the Giants, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Myers logged the second-highest number of snaps among tampa tight ends behind Luke Stocker for the second straight week, but was shut out of the stat sheet for the second time in three contests. The veteran tight end's playing time has been fairly consistent during the extended absence of Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder), but his performances clearly haven't, even with the multitude of injuries suffered by the Bucs' receiving corps.

Myers logged 39 snaps in the Week 8 matchup versus the Falcons, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran tight end was actually outpaced by Luke Stocker by virtue of one snap, but secured three receptions to Stocker's none. Myers has provided serviceable work in place of Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) over the last several weeks, but will cede notable playing time to the second-year pro upon his return. With Seferian-Jenkins already having turned in limited practices last week, that reduction in snaps for Myers will likely come as soon as Week 9.

Myers secured all three of his targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 23-20 overtime victory over the Falcons.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Myers returned to the box score after a Week 7 outing against the Redskins in which he was shut out and only targeted once. The veteran tight end served as an extra pair of hands on deck on a day in which the Bucs passing game was short-handed, and equaled his season-high long reception of 17 yards on one of his three catches. It remains to be seen how Tampa's tight end depth chart will shake out beneath Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) when the starter returns to the field.

Myers will be replaced by Luke Stocker in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Myers has logged 40-plus snaps each of the last three weeks while Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) has been sidelined, but he's gone largely ignored in the passing game, hauling in six of nine targets for 60 yards. His snap count figures to dwindle with Stocker replacing him in the lineup, but don't expect any of the Bucs' tight ends to see many looks from quarterback Jameis Winston until Seferian-Jenkins is healthy again.
