REDSKINS SIGN TE ROB MYERS TO PRACTICE SQUAD

ASHBURN, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed tight end Rob Myers to the team’s practice squad.

Myers (6-4, 239) was originally signed by the New York Jets as a college free agent on April 30, 2009, before being waived on May 29. He signed with the Philadelphia Eagles on Aug. 8, before being waived on Sept. 5 and signing with their practice squad a day later. He was waived by the Eagles on Sept. 24. He signed with the New England Patriots’ practice squad on Nov. 3, where he remained for the rest of the season. Myers was signed by the Patriots as a free agent on Jan. 13, 2010, before being waived on Sept. 4. He signed with the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad on Sept. 13, before being waived on Oct. 1. Myers signed with the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad on Oct. 26, where he remained for the rest of the season. He was waived by the Colts on August 8, 2011.

Myers played collegiately at Utah State where he amassed 31 receptions for 445 yards and three touchdowns despite missing his entire senior season because of a turf toe injury. As a junior in 2007, Myers had 21 receptions for 320 yards with three touchdowns and led all tight ends in yards per reception with 15.2. His season was highlighted by being named the John Mackey National Tight End of the Week, following his career-best outing of 117 yards on four catches with two touchdowns in a win at New Mexico State on Nov. 21.

Myers was born on April 9, 1986, in Dallas and attended Bellaire High School in Houston.

they sign the most talented guys they can find. just because a guy plays oline doesnt mean he needs to be signed.

this guy will probably never amount to anything, but they sign the most talented guys that they think are worth while. if there was an olineman they figured was even project worthy, theyd have signed him already.

Alot of times it depends on the depth at that position. We have 9 offensive linemen on the roster and one on the PS. We have 6 DL on the roster and 2 on the PS. I guess with only 2 "official TEs (I'm not really counting Sellers) they want to have some practice depth with 2 more TEs on the PS.

So we have 10 total offensive linemen suiting up for practice. Maybe they think we have enough.
