According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, free agent tight end Brandon Myers is scheduled to visit with the Giants this weekend. Brandon Myers, a free agent tight end who had a huge breakthrough season with the Oakland Raiders last year, is scheduled to be in New Jersey some time on Saturday for a free-agent visit with the Giants, the Daily News has learned.
