The Buccaneers are expected to place a second-round tender on restricted free agent wide receiver Adam Humphries, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The tender this year is expected to be worth about $2.914MM.
The second-round tender has been more popular than ever this year with scores of players already having it assigned. It makes sense that teams are retaining lots of RFAs at a cost of less than $3MM given the abundance of cap room around the league.
Humphries, 25 in June, hit new career highs with 61 catches and 631 receiving yards last season. In three years with Tampa Bay, Humphries has amassed 143 grabs for 1,513 yards with four touchdowns.
