Titans land Adam Humphries

Wide receiver Adam Humphries has found a new home.

NFL Media reports that the slot receiver will be signing with the Titans this week. It’s expected to be a four-year, $36 million deal.

Titans General Manager Jon Robinson worked for the Buccaneers when Humphries earned a job in Tampa during a tryout at rookie minicamp in 2015.

Humphries became the team’s top slot receiver and caught 219 passes for 2,329 yards and nine touchdowns over the last four seasons. He set career highs with 76 catches, 816 yards and five touchdowns last year.

He’s the third receiver who primarily works out of the slot to agree on a deal Monday. Danny Amendola signed with the Lions and Jamison Crowder is set to sign with the Jets on Wednesday.

  1. Wow any buc fan that is made we didn’t resign humphries or kwon. Can look at there new contracts and see those two guys were severely overpaid. 9 million a year for a number 3 receiver. Who only catches 3 yard passes. But it might work out well with check down Mariota

  2. The Bucs were stacked at WR before the D Jax and Hump trades, but don’t think that the team is now in shambles.

    Mike Evans at WR1
    Chris Godwin at WR2
    Bobo Wilson/Justin Watson at WR3/Slot

    Even if Hump stayed, he’s still at WR2 on the Bucs roster. Might as well see if the guys drafted and on the depth chart can duplicate the stats at a substantial discount. Especially when those guys are on late round or undrafted free agent contracts.

  3. I would’ve loved to have kept Hump, but not at that number.

    The offense will shift now. Tampa Bay has two extremely talented TEs that will take over some of the short passes Adam used to catch. Evans and Godwin will work outside. Watson will backup the outside guys. Bobo wilson will be given a chance at winning the slot job, but I don’t know if he runs tight enough routes.

    Hate to disagree with a Bucs fan, but it now breaks down to Mike Evans #1 WR, BoBo Wilson #2 WR, and Godwin in the slot. The Bucs already had plans to move Godwin to the slot in case Humphries left. Mike Evans is the #1 possession receiver or go to receiver. The Bucs have to have a deep threat and currently that’s BoBo Wilson.

    I don’t think the Bucs expected to loose Kwon Alexander. He’s returning from injury and the Bucs didn’t think any team would offer him $45 million. Alexander was the key to the LB corp. After Alexander injury, the Bucs suffered. Teams exploited the middle of the defense. The Bucs have a lot of young DB’s that proved they could play in the NFL. The DL has a lot of returning players. So they turned there attention to the OL by locking them up for a few years. Now it certainly looks like the Bucs will have to find WR, slot receiver, and LB’s in free agency and the draft. There is no doubt, most team are finding it hard to deal with the cap. Some of this is caused by players demanding a huge salaries. This is happening all across sports. Just like society in general, you have halves and halves knots of sports. It’s a simple fact, with the salary cap, you can pay everybody what they want.

    Check down? Is that supposed to be an insult? Tom Brady has won 6 championships checking down. Maybe Fameous Rapist should check down more?
