Was Letting Humphries Leave The Right Decision?

If you’re a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan, you’re well aware that Adam Humphries signed a deal with the Titans worth $36 million for over the next four years. Humphries is clutch, has great hands, and runs great routes, but let’s keep it real, the Buccaneers didn’t have the cap space to re-sign him without dropping some serious talent needed in other positions. Some are irreplaceable.

Queue the signing of Breshad Perriman.

Perriman, who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.24-seconds at his UCF Pro Day in 2015, adds a speedy, big target to a passing offense that finished first in the NFL in net yardage last year. Perriman averages 15.5 yards per catch in his career and should be a deep threat along with opening up the passing game for Evans, Godwin, and Howard.

The 6-2, 211-pound Perriman also provides meat to a receiving group that could set the NFL on fire in 2019. The big question that will be floating around for a while is, “Why was letting Humphries walk the right move?” Short answer: Too much money.
