      Makes no since for Jason Licht not to at minimum tender Humphries with at least a second round tender amount. Low round tender with nothing in exchange should the Bucs decide not to match will only fuel the fire of ineptness.

      Licht is poor at prioritizing.

      The role players should wait until later?

      He doesn’t put a second round tender on him because he has right of first refusal.

      A second round tender requires the team to pay that player just over 2 million dollars for that season.

      Jason can wait this one out and either work out a multi year deal with Humphries at some point or let another team offer him 1- 1.5 million this year then match it… and still come out ahead.

      The Bucs have Humphries by the balls and he can’t really go anywhere. Even if a team offered him 10 million dollars (clearly exaggerating) the Bucs can still match it.

      It’s much better business to wait it out now and save some money on the cap.

      Realizing another team could structure a contract in a way that would prevent the Bucs from matching any offer Humphries receives as a RFA and the amount of impending free agents the Bucs need to resign in the next two years – leaves the Bucs susceptible to out right losing Humphries for nothing. When it would cost the team an additional $1.1 million to have total control of the process. Now if you think he is not worth a $3 million dollar salary – that is one thing. However, I firmly believe a player who has proven to be productive with what the teams ask him to do, with a catch rate of 70% through three seasons and a critical 3rd down chess piece is worth a $3 million dollar salary.

      Licht has left himself open again for a poison pill. Guess which team loves opportunities like this? Patriots.

        Poison pill clause isn’t a thing that’s allowed in the NFL.
