On Thursday, Adam Humphries was officially introduced as a member of the Titans.

Reportedly after verbally agreeing to a deal on Monday during the legal tampering period, the Patriots upped their offer on Tuesday to more than what the Titans had given, but in the end he decided to stick with his decision and be a member of the Titans.

“I’m a man of my word,” Humphries said to reporters. “But it’s tough. It’s a big decision. It’s a decision that will impact me for the rest of my life. I obviously put a lot of thought into that. Having family around me was good. Once I committed to Tennessee, I was really excited to be a Titan and I still am.”

He added: "That was something that I was weighing, the options between both teams. It was tough. Obviously, they have a lot of success with guys similar to me. Obviously, everything I’ve said to you guys today about why I chose here is true. I’m excited to work with this team and hopefully propel them to some wins and a playoff run.”

Humphries seemingly would have been a nice fit with the Patriots, as not only a receiver, but a punt returner as well.

After missing out on Humphries, it appears the Patriots have now shifted their attention towards Golden Tate.
