Hot on the heels of giving Louis Murphy a contract extension, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers extended another member of their offense as Brandon Myers has agreed to a new deal with the team.

Myers has agreed to restructure his deal for next season while also signing for another year, taking his new deal through the 2016 season.

The tight end was signed during the offseason to a two-year, $4.25 million deal. He was due to make $2.25 million in 2015.

In 13 games this year, Myers has 18 catches for 169 yards and no touchdowns. His production as a pass-catching tight end has declined rapidly this season, however, that has been the case for all Bucs tight ends in 2014. Just two years ago, Myers had over 800 receiving yards with the Oakland Raiders on 79 catches.

Myers had six catches in the Bucs’ opening game of the season but has had just five grabs in his last 10 games.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins is of course under contract next year but Luke Stocker is a free agent. The team also has rookie Cameron Brate on the roster meaning the Bucs have a decision to make regarding the team’s third tight end.
