Why?

So you can replace Byard with him?

 

Sorry Rein, but that makes no sense whatsoever.  Safety wasn't the problem.  Especially with KV re-signed.

I was really just being facetious Duck... Hard to make that kind of pun without being misunderstood on this board.

Lotsa jokes flyin' about that one, so I shoulda known I guess.

Like someone said, we wanted a veteran, but we didn't know it would be a WWII veteran.

That's a classic right there!

Can you explain to me why the great Jon Robinson shelled out almost $9M per year for a fifth option receiver in Humphries when Woodyard is only making $2.56 per season average??? The sheer logic behind this idiotic move and decision making???

 

Oh, yeah... And had "second thoughts" about signing with the Titans - apparently.

 

By the by - I'm sure you and I already know the answer.

Well, the last time I checked, there wasn't a bidding war for Woodyard's services.  And the "second thoughts" story has turned out to be bullshit.

What Woodyard is willing to work for, and what AAS pays him is between him, his agent and the FO. 

 

I will say this much, however,...

There is NO TROPHY for winning the "Under The Cap" sweepstakes.  Bragging about having the most cap room is a waste of time if you're perennially stuck at 8-8 or 9-7.

So, a good GM makes deals.  Hopefully deals that result in more production and won't hurt too bad to get out of if the player doesn't pan out, and they need to go away.

But even if you're great at drafting and build a contender on rookie contracts, when those come due for renewal you're gonna have to pay up, or let them walk and go find the next one.

Humphries is younger than Woodyard and has more productive years ahead of him.

 

Humphries contract reflects 2019 prices and not one that is several years old like Woodyard's.

NFL Draft 2019: Seven Ways Free Agency Has Reshaped the Draft

 

"The Tennessee Titans had one of the best early performances in free agency.

They secured offensive lineman Rodger Saffold to boost the line in front of quarterback Marcus Mariota, according to Adam Schefter.

Perhaps more impressively, the Titans solved a consistency problem with Mariota's weapons, agreeing to a contract with wideout Adam Humphries, according to Mike Garafolo. He's only 26 and dangerous, tallying 816 yards and five scores last year on a putrid Tampa Bay offense.

In short, the team that picks 19th now has an open-ended approach to the first round and beyond. Model franchises usually address needs in free agency at proper values and take the best player available in the draft.

The Titans are now in position to do this. They could also be aggressive with draft trades to add weapons that will help Mariota recover from his tailspin."

Yeah this has been understated. Tampa Bay had over 5000 yards and 36 TDs through the air last year. Humphries was at best a 3rd option. I'm excited we got a quick slot guy but there is some reason to believe he was often single covered or not even covered. They had OJ Howard, Evans, and DJax. Humphries seems like the logical guy to have a LB cover out of that group.

Why were the Pats ready to give this guy 10 million a year then? They saw potential

I wasn't saying it was a bad signing. Just that he's going to have more attention on him in our offense.
