Myers got the lion's share of touches among Buccaneer tight ends. Austin Seferian-Jenkins had just one catch that went for 26 yards, and was targeted only twice. Seferian-Jenkins is viewed as the superior future player, but Myers was the one able to establish himself as McCown's go-to tight end Sunday. Myers caught 47 passes for 522 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games a year ago for the Giants and could be in store for another successful season.

Myers and Austin Seferian-Jenkins both got significant run with the first-team offense, though they combined for just one catch and 11 yards. Myers may have a shot to start the regular-season opener, but Seferian-Jenkins is a better blocker with much greater potential. Even if the Bucs make frequent use of two-TE sets, it's hard to envision Myers besting his production from last season, when he caught 47 passes for 522 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games for the Giants.

Myers was listed as the top tight end Tuesday on the Buccaneers' initial preseason offensive depth chart, according to the team's official site.
While Myers' name may be atop the team's TE depth chart for now, there's plenty of competition for snaps at the position heading into the preseason, specifically from rookie Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Tim Wright and Luke Stocker. The report notes that Myers does a little bit of everything well, which should ensure him a role in the team's attack, but Seferian-Jenkins has had a good training camp thus far and still looks like the upside play in fantasy.

Myers was also targeted on both of the Giants' interceptions.
