6. Adam Humphries
The Titans haven’t exactly missed Humphries this year, but they definitely could have used the money they invested in him in a much more effective way. He arrived from Tampa Bay after the best season of his career but hasn’t come close to replicating that during his two years in Nashville. Indeed, since his arrival, the pressure on Derrick Henry’s shoulders has only increased, which defeats the purpose of having Humphries there.
A combination of injuries meant that Humphries missed a significant chunk of games in 2020. His four-year deal, worth $36 million, increasingly looks like money thrown away. The Titans could have taken his guaranteed millions in salary and used it more productively. Awarding such lucrative contracts to players after a single good season is definitely not advisable as history proves each and every year.
