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.

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.

    • Nah..  But I'm sure somebody somewhere will give Reich or Ballard credit for being geniuses lol. 
    • Perhaps Jags beating us was a win
    • https://www.espn.com/nfl/draft2021/story/_/id/29682741/projected-2021-nfl-draft-order-no-1-pick   Current odds for 1st pick in order.   Jets Jags Giants Bengals Falcons   Just hope it's not the Jags. I'd prefer the Giants to be honest.
    • 1 year deals, or short terms deals, are always part of the equation. And mixing in good but aged vets with young and upcoming talent is a good thing. That's just normal and good roster management. There's always a mix on a good team. I'd have zero issue with spending 8ish/year for two years on a healthy Ertz. That said, I'm higher than most on our current TEs. Doyle is extremely solid, Mo needs more snaps, and especially RZ and sail route type snaps. Burton did well, but he's more slot WR than TE to me.    8M for 2 years is not a huge or long term investment. With Ertz being injured now, and only one year left on his deal, Eagles can't ask for much.    Honest question, aside the QB elephant in the room, what are your top 5 position needs?
    • Rushing 4 gives teams a better chance of not getting beat over the top. We all saw that 1 on 1 with Hill/Kelce/Hardman and nobody covering over top is a mismatch.
