The Buccaneers won’t have to match any outside offers for wide receiver Adam Humphries‘ services.

The Bucs tendered Humphries as a restricted free agent at the second-round level this offseason and announced on Monday that Humphries has signed the tender. He’ll make just over $2.9 million this season as a result.

Humphries made the Bucs as an undrafted rookie in 2015 and caught 27 passes that year. His role in the offense has gone up the last two years as he’s caught 116 passes for 1,253 yards and three touchdowns while working out of the slot.

Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and Chris Godwin are the other receivers at the top of the depth chart in Tampa.

    When you add TEs Brate and OJ Howard with WRs Humphries, Goodwin, Evans and DeSean Jackson, you wonder how the Bucs don’t average 24 pts per game.

  2. They need a running game to keep the linebackers and safety honest. Once you force the defense to bring 8 in the box it will open up passing lanes as well as slow down the pass rush a little.

  3. Newlydead is right. I remember in 1995 the 49ers were coming off of one of the most explosive seasons offensively they ever had, but they let RB Ricky Watters go in free agency. They’d drafted All-America WR J.J. Stokes and figured they’d make up for the loss of a star RB with a star WR.

    Needless to say, it didn’t work. The Niners didn’t have a powerful offense again until they signed Garrison Hearst.
