Raiders about to sign sixth-round tight end

Apparently, the Oakland Raiders don’t have any problem with sixth-round tight end Brandon Myers.

Unlike Stryker Sulak, the Raiders’ other sixth-round rookie who was abruptly cut from the team without being given a reason last week, the Raiders plan to bring Myers to training camp.

The Raiders are on the verge of signing Myers to a four-year deal that includes a signing bonus of just over $90,000, according to a league source.

The former University of Iowa player’s contract will include minimum base salaries and a fourth-year escalator clause that could boost the total value of the deal significantly.

Myers is a two-time All-Big Ten Conference selection.

    Wouldn’t it be cheaper not to?

    Now that we have gotten that out of the way, we can hire a group of scientists to find a way to put grass down on a dirt infield.
    Am I the only one who cares about this?
    Whatever!
    I’m going to go start my own blog so I can focus on the real problems. And YES! You better be there Florio.
