Washington Football Team signs WR Adam Humphries

The Washington Football Team announced the signing of free-agent receiver Adam Humphries on Thursday.

While Washington didn’t disclose the terms of the signing, it’s a one-year deal, according to numerous reports.

Humphries, who was released by the Tennessee Titans last month, visited Washington on Thursday, according to reports. The 27-year-old Humphries joins a receiving group that was already bolstered by the free-agent signing of Curtis Samuel, formerly of the Panthers.

Humphries signed a four-year, $36 million contract with the Titans before the 2019 season, but he had the worst season of his career in 2020. He posted career-lows in catches (23) and receiving yards (228) in seven games with one start during a season that ended with him on injured reserve, leading to his release.

Humphries spent his first four seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Clemson. For his career, he has 279 receptions with 2,931 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns in 79 games (21 starts).

During his time in Tampa, he spent two seasons catching passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick, who Washington signed to a one-year deal as a free agent last week. With Fitzpatrick primarily serving as his quarterback in 2018 in Tampa, Humphries made 76 receptions for 816 yards and five touchdowns, enabling him to land the huge free-agent deal with the Titans.

The Tennessee Titans waived wide receiver Adam Humphries on Thursday, a move that saves the team $4.5 million in cap space.

Humphries had two years left on a $36 million deal he signed with the Titans in 2019. His release leaves $5 million in dead money for this season.

Humphries, 27, played in just seven games (one start) in 2020. Lingering effects from a concussion suffered in Week 8 effectively ended a season that was also cut short with a stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He was put on injured reserve Dec. 8.

He had 23 receptions for 228 yards and two touchdowns, ending his tenure in Tennessee with 60 total catches.

He had 219 catches with nine touchdowns in four seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Titans put WR Humphries (concussion) on IR

The Tennessee Titans put wide receiver Adam Humphries on injured reserve Tuesday, reportedly for lingering effects from a concussion he suffered in a Week 8 game.

Humphries just returned to the lineup last week in the Titans’ loss to the Cleveland Browns after missing four games with the concussion. He played 26 snaps against the Browns, hauling in one catch for 9 yards.

Humphries will have to miss at least three games, which makes Week 17 against the Houston Texans — the final game of the season — the first he would be eligible to return.

Humphries, 27, was first injured after an illegal hit from Cincinnati safety Jessie Bates during the Titans-Bengals game on Nov. 1. Bates was later fined $20,000 for the hit.

The Titans signed Humphries to a four-year, $36-million contract last season. He has 23 catches for 228 yards and two touchdowns on the season. He has 13 career TDs in 79 games (21 starts) for the Titans and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2015-18).

The Titans also put practice squad punter Trevor Daniel on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Titans WRs Humphries, Baston activated from COVID list

The Tennessee Titans activated wide receivers Adam Humphries and Cam Batson off the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday, dropping the numbers of players on their COVID list to five.

Since Sept. 24 – three days before their 31-30 road win over the Minnesota Vikings — the Titans have seen 24 players and staff members test positive for COVID-19.

The affected included both of their top two receivers, Humphries and Corey Davis, who remains in quarantine. Two Titans games were forced to be postponed because of the team outbreak.

Despite missing several players and enduring an extended layoff — the 15 days between games marked the NFL’s longest in-season wait since 2001 — the undefeated Titans moved to 4-0 by crushing the previously unbeaten Buffalo Bills on Tuesday 42-16.

Humphries, 27, caught 15 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown in the season’s first three weeks before testing positive for coronavirus. He rejoined the active roster Wednesday, 12 days after being placed on the Titans’ reserve/COVID list.

Baston, 24, reverted back to the team’s practice squad after also initially being placed on the reserve/COVID list on Oct. 2. He has played in two games this season, catching a pair of passes for 26 yards.

Five players remain on Tennessee’s reserve/COVID list, including four from the active roster (Davis, tight end MyCole Pruitt, fullback Khari Blasingame and defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons) and one from the practice squad (cornerback Breon Borders).

The Titans also made a trade Wednesday, dealing linebacker Kamalei Correa — who also has spent time on the COVID list — and a seventh-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a 2021 sixth-round pick.
