PRO: The Titans signed wide receiver Adam Humphries to the roster early in the 2019 free agency period. The 5-foot-11-inch, 195-pounder has the ability to line up both inside and outside at wide receiver as well as contribute in the return game. After completing his four-year career at Clemson, Humphries signed a rookie free agent deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and spent his first four NFL campaigns with the club (2015-18), registering 219 receptions for 2,329 yards and nine touchdowns.
• Humphries was originally a rookie tryout invitee with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following the 2015 NFL Draft. Titans general manager Jon Robinson was a member of the Bucs player personnel department at the time and saw the 5-foot-11-inch wideout grind it out in practice and eventually earn a spot on the team’s 53-man roster. “Humph came in as a tryout and won a spot on the 90-man roster,” said Robinson. “He was a tough guy to cover all through training camp and he kept working and working and working. I’ve always had an affinity for him and liked his style. He’s earned everything he’s got.”
• Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney took a visit to Humphries’ high school, Dorman, before the 2011 season to scout eventual signee Charone Peake during a basketball game. But once the game began, Swinney couldn’t help but notice Dorman’s 5-foot-11 point guard running the show. “I go watch a basketball game at Dorman High School to see Charone Peake, and I’m going, ‘Dang, who’s this point guard?’” Swinney said. “And I’ve got Coach (Dave) Gutshall going, ‘Well that’s the best football player I’ve got on the team.’ And I’m like, ‘Really? We need to watch this guy a little bit.’ He played corner, he played receiver, he played running back, he played quarterback. He was the best football player on the team. Adam Humphries was his name. I don’t think he had any offers. So we offer the guy, ‘Well, we’re only offering the guy to get Charone Peake. No, no, no. We want Humphries.”
