Examining the Buccaneers’ Choices at Third Wide Receiver
In life, someone’s loss is someone else’s gain, and that was the story for Adam Humphries in 2015. After injuries to Vincent Jackson and Russell Shepard, Humphries stepped into an important role as the third wide receiver, and did perform well. He posted 27 receptions for 260 yards and a touchdown.
He may have a leg up in the race because of his hands. In 40 targets last season, Humphries was only credited with two drops. Weapons that Jameis Winston can count on are of the utmost importance. But, Humphries was an undrafted free agent or a reason. Is he limited?
While at Clemson, Humphries never posted more than 500 yard receiving, and saw his production decline through his senior year. He has some pros, but maybe he isn’t good enough to be that guy.
