Buccaneers waive Adam Humphries, bring in four kickers for tryouts

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have waived kicker Kyle Brindza and receiver Adam Humphries, the team announced. Waiving Brindza was a no-brainer after his disastrous performance the past two weeks, but Humphries' departure is a bit of a surprise. The diminutive slot receiver was a standout in the preseason but has barely gotten on the field during the regular season, looking sloppy when he did.

The Bucs didn't announce any signings to replace the two, but they'll be holding tryouts for a new kicker tomorrow. According to Mike Garafolo, those tryouts will include Connor Barth, Randy Bullock, Kai Forbath and Billy Cundiff -- all veterans, two of whom have played for the Bucs before. Of these, Cundiff and Bullock probably have the strongest chance to stick because both have demonstrated the leg to handle kickoffs. Cundiff has historically been up-and-down with his field goal accuracy, though, and Bullock was waived by the Texans for the same reason. Barth and Forbath are more accurate, but don't have the leg to do well on kickoffs.

We'll see tomorrow or Wednesday who the Bucs go with as their kicker, and who they intend on bringing in to replace Humphries.
