3 Most Likely Adam Humphries Destinations
The 'cap casualty' period is hitting hard as free agency approaches in March. The Tennessee Titans just released WR Adam Humphries and freed up nearly $4.5 million in cap space. Humphries played in 19 regular-season games over the past two seasons and had 602 receiving yards. He missed most the second half of the 2020 season with a concussion. Humphries signed a $36 million, 4-year contract with the Titans prior to the 2019 season.
The 27-year-old Humphries was undrafted in 2015 and played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His best season was 2018 when he caught 76 passes for 816 yards and 5 touchdowns. He earned a solid 75.2 Pro Football Focus (PFF) grade that season and has graded out just under 70 each of the past two seasons.
Humphries will have to take a pay cut moving forward, and here are three teams that could take a shot to add the veteran receiver.
1. New Orleans Saints
The Saints targeted Humphries before he signed with the Titans. Now, former Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is on the Saints, and Humphries could reunite with Winston as he gets more playing time pending Drew Brees' status. The Saints receiving core was banged up throughout 2020, and adding Humphries as a slot specialist cout fit if the price is right, as the Saints have serious salary cap issues.
2. New York Jets
The Jets have plenty of cap space and need help at wide receiver. The team's No. 2 receiver last year Breshad Perriman is a free agent, and Jamison Crowder topped the charts with just 59 catches for 699 yards.
3. Baltimore Ravens
Playing wide receiver in the Ravens run-heavy option offense is not ideal. But QB Lamar Jackson needs more capable wide receivers, and the team's No. 2 wide receiver Willie Snead is a free agent. Top targets Marquis Brown and TE Mark Andrews are young and productive, but recent third-round picks Miles Boykin and Devin Duvernay have not yet shown they can be solid No. 2 or 3 options.
