Titans to ink Humphries; announce Vaccaro deal

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- On the first day of the NFL's negotiating period, the Tennessee Titans took care of business on both sides of the ball.

The Titans intend to sign wide receiver Adam Humphries, sources told ESPN's Dianna Russini. A source told ESPN's Dan Graziano the deal is worth $36 million over four years.

A 2015 undrafted free agent, the 26-year-old Humphries started 10 of 16 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2018, finishing with 76 catches and a career-high 816 receiving yards and five touchdowns.

News of the move comes after Tennessee announced it has re-signed safety Kenny Vaccaro, but released safety Johnathan Cyprien.

Vaccaro's new deal is for four years and worth $26 million with $11.5 million guaranteed, a source told ESPN, confirming an NFL Network report.

The six-year veteran signed a one-year deal with the Titans in 2018 when Cyprien went down with a knee injury during training camp. Vaccaro immediately found a spot as a dual safety with Kevin Byard, forming one of the most effective safety tandems in the NFL. Vaccaro, 28, posted 58 tackles, two sacks and an interception for Tennessee last season.

By releasing Cyprien, the Titans save $4.75 million in cap space but have a dead cap hit of $1.5 million.

Selected with the 15th overall pick by the Saints in the 2013 draft, Vaccaro has 443 career tackles, 9.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and nine interceptions. He finished third in NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year voting in 2013, when then-Saints coordinator Rob Ryan moved him all over the defense as a versatile chess piece.

Vaccaro, who has shown Pro Bowl-caliber potential throughout his career, went unsigned after the 2017 season, along with several other veteran safeties, as the market for their services didn't develop as expected.

He played in 12 games during the 2017 season, missing time because of a lingering groin injury that eventually required surgery. He was suspended for the final four games of the 2016 season after testing positive for Adderall.
