Adam Humphries is set to hit the open market and demanding more than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may be willing to offer, who are some potential replacements?
In 2018, Adam Humphries had a breakout year in the slot despite playing in an overcrowded receiver room in Tampa Bay, and now he is set to hit free agency and it seems like he may be a bit too pricey for the Buccaneers to retain. Last season, he tallied 800 yards receiving and saw an enormous 105 targets over the middle of the field despite a revolving door at the quarterback position.

That kind of production is not going to be easily replaced in the slot for the Buccaneers and given their current cap space, the team will need to pursue some financially friendly targets in free agency or in the draft. With names like Hunter Renfrow and Penny Hart available in late rounds, Tampa Bay could find a gem come April.
However, if they were to look in the free agency bargain bin for a quality slot, those options are present as well. With Chris Godwin and Mike Evans locking down the outsides at receiver, and O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate dominating the seams, the Bucs really just need a reliable target that can get open in the middle of field and can catch the ball on a consistent basis; here are five potential options.
