Humphries caught 27 passes for 260 yards and a touchdown during his rookie season, and he built on that solid start by earning the Bucs' No. 3 receiver job during training camp. 

"When I came out here last year, no one knew me," he said, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud. "I didn't know anyone out here. I just tried to work hard and get noticed. It's good to come in here this year and be a guy the quarterback can rely on and earn that No. 3 spot."

Twelve games into the 2016 season, Humphries has totaled 42 catches for 467 yards and a touchdown operating in a receiving corps that consists primarily of Mike Evans, Russell Shepard and tight end Cameron Brate.
