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.

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.

  1. That seems fair. I like Humphries a lot, but we almost have too many guys to get on the field at one time. Depending on the situation, you gotta choose who to put on the field between OJ, Brate, Humphries, Godwin, and D-Jax. That should offer versatility to the offense if Koetter uses them right….hopefully he and Monken can figure it out this year.

    • I agree, however, the more talent we have the better because injuries happen every season so keeping as much talent as possible will keep us in every game we play.

      • That is the key Sheldon. I do not understand why fans/media say things like too many guys. I mean what is wrong with our TE position giving us 1200 yards and 12 tds as they did last year? That means a defense can not key in on who the bucs are targeting. If Djax goes down, you still have Godwin who can go off. This is a great problem to have. The more the merrier.

  2. I agree also with you both. That’s why we cant really trade D Jackson. If Mike Williams goes down and we traded D Jax we probably have no playoff hopes no matter who we draft and get in FA. Were good on Offense except a RB . G & C. IMO GO BUCS!!!

  4. So if New England makes him an offer, do we get a chance to match the offer and keep him, or do we automatically get NE’s #65 pick? I like Hump and hope he stays.

  5. I like Hump too, but would not mind at all if someone in the beginning to middle of round 2 were to snatch him up. I think we would benefit much more with another premium pick than to retain Humphries. He’s a good, solid, reliable WR, but I have never liked him as a return man, he’s too slow. Never can really break away on a return even if it seems to be blocked well. We need a lot more speed back there.

  6. Good move, puts us in a win/win situation. Hump has been a dependable weapon and would be the clear choice in the slot if not for the beast that is Chris Godwin.

    We either keep another dependable WR (you can never have too many) or someone steals him away and we get another 2nd round pick…win/win.
