2018 Week 11 vs NYG (5 / 3 / 60 / 1 rec)

Fitzpatrick connected with Humphries on a deep comeback route up the right seam late in the 3rd quarter. Humphries scored his first touchdown of the day around the 5 minute mark in the 3rd quarter, running a quick slant route from the right slot where Fitzpatrick found him for a 5 yard TD reception.

He split out wide left with Evans in the slot, catching a quick slant and tearing through the secondary where he dodged a couple of tackles and carried one final defender(Luke Kuechly!) into the end zone for the 30 yard score. Humphries was initially ruled down inside the 1 yard line, but an official challenge ruled the play a touchdown.
2018 Week 8 vs CIN (10 / 7 / 76 / 0 rec)

2018 Week 1 vs NO (5 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

Latest NewsBuccaneers | Adam Humphries might not return to Bucs (Thu Feb 14, 12:29 AM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries, an impending free agent, might command $8 million per season in his new deal. Our View: The team looked to sign him to a long-term deal last year, but his asking price was rumored to be $8 million per year. The team decided to shelve the extension talks, but now it appears that will be the fair market value and he could be headed for another team in the offseason.
link to story Saints | New Orleans to sign slot receiver? (Sat Feb 9, 02:10 AM) - The New Orleans Saints could try to sign a free-agent wide receiver to play the slot next season, in the opinion of ESPN's Mike Triplett, who names Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb, Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley, Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate and Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries as possible targets in free agency. Our View: The Saints will be looking for more talent at the wide receiver position. That could come through free agency with one of the players mentioned above. Michael Thomas is a stud, and Tre'Quan Smith has intriguing upside...and oh yeah, Ted Ginn can still be a deep threat. That's a nice trio but we're expecting the Saints to add more competition to the WR corps.
link to story Patriots | Adam Humphries could be option for Pats (Fri Feb 8, 06:50 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent WR Adam Humphries could receive interest from the New England Patriots this offseason, in the opinion of NESN.com's Doug Kyed.
