NFL Notes: Buccaneers, Falcons, Titans


  • Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times believes NFL teams view Buccaneers’ impending free-agent WR Adam Humphries as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver and “very productive and consistent” as a slot receiver. 
  • Auman notes that the Buccaneers’ current front office drafted the majority of the younger players on the roster, meaning the hope for the new coaching staff is to yield better results with the same players. 
  • Regarding the possibility of signing Texans’ impending free-agent S Tyrann Mathieu, Auman points out that signing Mathieu would result in letting LB Kwon Alexander, Humphries, or another in-house free agent test the open market. 


  • Vaughn McClure reports that the Falcons would like to bring CB Brian Poole back, but just not at the restricted tender amount, which would have cost them over $2 million for the low-level tender. 
  • The Falcons have hired Will Harriger as an offensive assistant. (D. Orlando Ledbetter)


Titans S Johnathan Cyprien said he wants to “let it all out” on the field once he’s fully recovered from a torn ACL injury. 

It just something within me. Early in my career back in my high school days, I always felt like if I am going to hit you, I am going to hit you. I am not going to hold anything back,” said Cyprien, via Dan Graziano of ESPN. “It’s instilled in me that whatever I am going to do, it’s going to be to the best of my ability. I don’t go halfway about things.

Cyrprien believes sustaining his knee injury during last year’s training camp has allowed him to properly recover and expects to be “100 percent” for training camp. 

A lot of guys get injured during the year, come back too early and don’t look the same,” Cyprien said. “One good thing is the time I got hurt. It allowed me to have until next August to be 100 percent and compete in training camp.”
