Having already made a significant addition to its receiving corps this offseason, Washington is looking for more help for its Terry McLaurin-led crew. Adam Humphries visited Washington on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets.
Washington signed Curtis Samuel to pair with his former college teammate, but Pelissero adds the team is hoping to complete a deal with Humphries as well. The Titans released Humphries last month, backtracking after their four-year contract agreement in 2019.
Humphries operated as an intriguing slot weapon in Tampa Bay, surpassing 800 receiving yards on a 2018 team that rostered Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and DeSean Jackson. During that 2018 Bucs season, new Washington quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick made several starts. Humphries eclipsed 600 yards in his previous two Bucs seasons, with his Tampa run helping him secure a four-year, $36MM Titans accord. That pact did not work out, with Humphries totaling just 602 yards in two injury-plagued seasons.
Last season, Humphries battled a lingering concussion issue. He suffered the head injury in Week 8 but remained in the protocol for a while. The Titans needed to shelve their slot receiver on IR because of the issue. Humphries played in just one of Tennessee’s final nine games last season. But Washington is looking into the six-year veteran, providing a positive sign for his NFL future.
During McLaurin’s first two seasons, Washington did not roster much in the way of complementary help for its No. 1 receiver. Samuel will change that. Humphries would be an interesting addition as well, but no deal has been agreed to just yet.
