Adam Humphries

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen much discussion on Adam Humphries, who is one of the few solid free agent options at WR. He was pretty consistent on a very inconsistent team that had many other receiving options. For the right price, should he be considered, and how would he fit into the Colts lineup?

The "right price" is the issue I think. This is a fairly weak group of FA WRs and Humphries is probably in line to get a decent contract. Personally, I wouldn't give it to him. I think you can find a comparable slot WR type in this draft...for a fraction of the cost. Or just sign Beasely to a cheaper deal.

 

Humphries isn't a bad WR. But his stats this past year are quite inflated...considering he played on a team who threw a ton...and most of the time were playing from behind. They also had a lot of weapons that other teams focused on. But whoever signs Humphries is going to be paying him like the 2nd/3rd option in the passing game.

IMO the free agent receivers are not that weak.

The top 5 are Tate, Humphries, Williams, Beasley and Brown are all receivers who could fit the Colts very well. 

Personally I like Williams the best but Tate has been the a constant receiver.

We also have Cain to look at.

Keep in mind when drafting a WR it take some time for them to adjust their game to the NFL. If we want a WR that can contribute right away one of these free agents needs to be signed.

I think we need a receiver like John Brown to stretch the field opposite to T.Y. and let Inman play underneath more along with the TEs making our offense more dangerous. Then, we can develop guys like Deon Cain and get a WR from the draft for contested catches with upside.

 

However, he is like a T.Y. clone and if we need YAC, we need to go after Golden Tate or Humphries, who are more of the YAC wide outs.

Looks like a lot of teams looking to sign. I'd be down with him or Tate.

Word is that Todd Monken, the Browns' new OC that called plays for the Bucs, likes and has a lot of familiarity with Adam Humphries and Humphries is predicted to go to the Browns by virtue of that connection. It is still about the money but I feel this is a likely spot.

Very possible, but this time last year, and for similar reasons, Norwell to the Giants was a virtual lock. Then it wasn't. 

 

If he's a FA in 26 days, I think the Colts should be one of the first calls he gets.

Wasn't Anthony Hitchens a lock to sign  with uS ?

Humphries is supposedly looking for at least $8 mil/yr and Spotrac has his market value at 4yr/$41.7 mil. ... so we are looking at $8-$11 mil//yr ... What's the "right price"?  Seems like any decent FA option at WR is going to be in that range.

 

I think if the Colts want to solidify the #2 WR position they may as well figure it is going to cost them ~$9 - $10 mil/yr. and I am ok with that.  TY - FA WR - Drafted WR? - bring back Inman  ... the rest can fight it out in camp for the last couple spots and PS.  I think that would give us a Solid WR group.

And maybe Cain will develop into a #2.

Maybe(and hopefully) ... always happy when we find great players via draft and if he does we will have a great WR group, but I am not basing my off season WR strategy on a 6th rnd rookie whose never played a real game & coming off an injury. Right now he is in the competing for one of the last roster spots group in my mind.

Considering they just forked over some cash for Jarvis Landry to play the slot, i don't see the Browns going after Humphries.

Exactly. The right FA wide  receiver would be the ideal get. Instant benefits.

The Bucs would be dumb to let Humphries walk, but then again he probably wants to go to a team with an actual Quarterback.

He is supposedly going to want more $$$ than they are willing/able to pay and they also have Godwin ready to play a bigger role.

They have about 70+ mil. in cap space plus the Browns move Landry around and operate their offense like there’s no true #1, IMO.

 

They have a good chance to land Humphries, IMO.

    • Honestly the whole league seems to overlook him for some reason.  And I don't understand it.   He's 28 so he should have a year or 2 left in him at min.   He has never once posted a season where he got under 4 yards per carry.     He's not a pro-bowler or anything like that but he seems to be a competent RB that would at the very least be a weapon to use in rotation.  But for 2 years now it seems like he's had a hard time finding a job.  
    • That’s on paper, a very solid group of receivers. What we are certain of right now is that TY, Funchess, Cain and probably Rogers makes the opening day roster. Hopefully Cain has put forth the film study and NFL style conditioning while he has been off for injury and he comes out for training camp to shake off the rust. Those last 3 guys are basically the same receiver imho and maybe there is room for 1 of those and a draft pick if we go wr with one of those 4 initial picks. If we pick a wr after the 3rd round, then they just compete it out with the bottom 3 and we move on with our PS build. Injuries may also dictate who stays and goes but I’d guess 6 wr’s make the squad and I really liked what Johnson flashed us in his short audition. Pascal has done a few nice things while here as well and of course Fountain was a 2018 draft pick with high hopes but did get cut and sent to the PS until late in the season and dropped his only attempt in the endzone while being virtually wide open. Hopefully we get one of all these receivers not named TY to break out this preseason to make cuts easier. 
    • Not much love on the Panthers message boards about Funch. It's kinda like our board when Moncrief left for Jacksonville.    
    • There are some obvious bad calls that I think most football fans can look at and realize that was a bad call.  Some of them in the past have been due to the rules being poorly written.  Honestly the competition committee's poor writing to the rules has caused far more problems in the past than the refs.     However the PI wasn't one of them.  That was a simple bad no call by the officials.     That said I think those are the exception to the rule.  If calls that bad were every day things, we wouldn't be talking about it.
