The Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense has been up and down over the last few years — and even was just in 2017 — but, for the most part, one player has remained a constant of who the coaches want and need him to be, and that is wide receiver Adam Humphries. In the early stages of free agency week, we’ve been told the Bucs will give Humphries a second round tender as a restricted free agent.
Can confirm the #Bucs are giving WR Adam Humphries a second round tender as a restricted free agent. He'll make $2.9 million in 2018.

Humphries will make $2.9 million in 2018 as part of his tender deal.
After going undrafted in 2015, Humphries was signed by the Buccaneers early that summer to come in and compete for the team’s fifth wide receiver spot. At the end of training camp, Humphries made the active 53-man roster and hasn’t looked back.
Humphries has been a reliable piece, not only on offense, but on special teams as well as the team’s punt and kick returner. Humphries had career highs in catches (61) and receiving yards (531) in 2017, and will likely compete once again for the team’s starting slot role again in 2018.
