As much as I love Adam Humphries, I no longer see a place for him on this team. Ever since his fumble against the Buffalo Bills, he’s seemed “off.”
He’s not getting the targets he used to and he’s not the sure handed, reliable guy he was last season. With the recent emergence in Chris Godwin, it seems Humphries is not long for this team.
Perhaps it’s a product of Jameis Winston being injured and Ryan Fitzpatrick not giving him the targets. Perhaps the targets he was getting weren’t the best considering Winston’s struggles since his injury. One thing is for sure, he’s no longer the contributor he once was.
It was nice to see him getting some opportunities on punt coverage with the recent release of Bernard Reedy. That won’t be enough to keep him around long term, but it’s another way to get him involved in the game since the offense has forgotten about him.
Humphries will become a restricted free agent this coming off-season, so it’s possible he is retained for depth purposes, though it seems unlikely. The best bet is Godwin takes over as the third receiver in the offense as he continues to mature and become more familiar with the offense. I hate to see Humphries go, but it seems like the most likely scenario at this point.
