Adam Humphries came into this season as the number 4 WR behind Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and Chris Godwin. So why sign him to a new contract? Why pay out for a third or fourth receiver when are stacked at the position?
Let’s take a look at his stats:
Total yards: 816
Average YPC: 10.7
In 2018 Adam Humphries was the most consistent player on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offense. Hell, he was the most consistent player on the team, period.
In his four years with Tampa his career average is like a rock with a stat line as follows:
Average yards: 10.6
That’s not a bad stat line for a fourth string WR.
The likelihood is that DeSean Jackson will not be in a Bucs uniform next year, and finding a reliable workhorse such as Hump is a rarity these days. Do we really want to see Adam Humphries wearing a Patriots Jersey next year? No, I don’t think so. Adam’s contract should be top priority in Tampa as soon as the new coach is found. The next contract signed should be Adams.
Don’t forget to catch Tony’s Take every Tuesday with host Tony Rossi. Go Bucs!
