Good luck Myers.

Just so Giants fans know, he can not block for crap.

And he is too slow to be that bad at blocking.

I agree he needs to improve his blocking. The guy doesn't look like much but he got results last year and the GMen need somebody to replace Bennett.

according to Pff he was -21.4 in blocking, one of the worst blocking seasons of all time.

This is the first time the Giants have really had a pure receiving TE. Travis Beckum was supposed to be that guy, but he never panned out and he's not getting resigned. So it looks like they got Eli a guy that can sit down in the middle of the field and catch a few passes. I'm alright with that.

He's not a pure receiving TE. He was targeted so much that he ended up with good looking stats. He's average at best.

That's good enough. The Giants have the luxury of taking average. Our TE Pope is the best in the business and with Eli throwing the ball that means he would graduate to good from average. Pope and Eli made Boss, Ballard, Bennett good from being average. Pope also made Boss and Ballard, who were terrible blockers into average/good.

Meyers is an average pass catcher with below average speed and a bad blocker. Im glad we didn't over pay.

Myers has great hands and knows how to work the middle of the field. He is however, a very bad blocker. I wish him well in NY, he'll do great with Eli.

not a very good player, his stats are inflated from playing on a bad team that threw the ball 50 times a game. hopefully the giants overpayed, would love a comp pick.

Why not just resign Bennett?
