From Pro Football Talk:
Myers, a tight end who has played his entire four-year career with the Raiders, has signed with the Giants, according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today.
In 2012 Myers quietly had a strong season for the Raiders, starting all 16 games and having career highs in catches (79), yards (806) and touchdowns (four).
The 6-foot-3, 256-pound Myers was viewed as the Giants’ first choice to replace Bennett. Now they’ve got their man.

So much for the Giants laying low. Although the terms of the agreement haven’t been revealed, this is the signing Giant fans have been clamoring for all week.
Myers should more than amply replace Martellus Bennett. This signing does several things. It gives Adrien Robinson more time to develop and also changes the Giants draft strategy. With Myers in the fold, the Giants will be less likely to select a TE in the first round of the upcoming draft.
This has been quite a busy day for Jerry Reese and Co. First Louis Murphy, then Dan Connor and now Myers. Things aren’t looking so bad now, eh?
