The Washington Football Team signed wide receiver Adam Humphries on Thursday.
The terms were not disclosed, but the deal is for a year, a source told ESPN.
The 27-year-old Humphries was released by the Tennessee Titans in February, saving around $ 4.47 million in salary caps. He had 23 catches for 228 yards and two touchdowns in seven games last season.
Humphries gives Washington a trusted slot receiver who also worked with his new quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick when they were both with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. According to a team source, Fitzpatrick told coaches that Humphries was one of the best, smartest slot receivers he’d played with.
Washington recently signed receiver Curtis Samuel, but is supposed to move him rather than limit it to the slot. It also has Steven Sims. Terry McLaurin was an effective off-slot running track last season as well. With Humphries, Washington can be more flexible than with Samuel, who can stand outside or in the background.
The Titans signed a four-year $ 36 million deal for Humphries in 2019 after posting 76 receptions for 816 yards and five touchdowns at the Buccaneers in 2018, with whom he entered the league in 2015 as an unoccupied free agent.
In 19 games with the Titans, Humphries caught 60 passes for 602 yards and four touchdowns. In total, he has caught 279 passes for 2,931 yards and 13 touchdowns during his career.
