The nine-year veteran was Sporting's longest-tenured player before departing the club following the 2016 season. He suffered a severe achilles injury early in the 2014 season and made his first MLS start since the injury on June 27, 2015. Myers went the distance and got an assist in the 2015 US Open Cup Final victory. He also converted a penalty kick in Sporting's 2013 MLS Cup triumph. Timbers fans are surely looking forward to having Myers back at the peak of his powers in 2017.
