Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Adam Humphries is a under-the-radar option for the Houston Texans to possibly make a trade for before Tuesday afternoon’s trade deadline, as Humphries needs to be on a team that doesn’t have a quarterback problem.
Humphries could be a good fit for the Texans to add some depth to the roster, and he wouldn’t cost as much in a trade as DeShaun Jackson would most likely cost. On the other hand, Humphries isn’t the same style of wide receiver as Will Fuller or Jackson, either.
This season, Humphries has played in seven games where he’s totaled 27 receptions for 296 yards and no touchdowns. On Sunday, he totaled seven receptions for 76 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals. Earlier this month, Humphries had 82 yards on three receptions when the Buccaneers faced the Atlanta Falcons.
Last season in 16 games, Humphries totaled 61 receptions for 631 yards and one touchdown, so there is potential there for the wide receiver playing with Watson and a Texans offense that seems to be getting their passing game and running game in order. He could be just the right player to take over for Fuller and even things out again, and not at a high price tag.
