Myers recorded a reception in 17 straight games dating back to the 2011 season finale. Myers closed out the season ranked fourth among NFL tight ends with 79 receptions.

He played in 23 games with 14 starts in two seasons at fullback with the Silver and Black (2007-08). Originally drafted by Atlanta in the fourth round of the 2003 NFL Draft, Griffith played four years with the Falcons before joining the Raiders. He played for Seattle in his final NFL season (2009).
