WR Humphries says Brady’s age part of passing on Pats

Wide receiver Adam Humphries signed a four-year, $36 million with the Tennessee Titans in March, passing up the chance to play for the New England Patriots.In doing so, he chose to catch passes from 25-year-old Marcus Mariota, entering his fifth season, instead of six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady.”Obviously, he’s the G.O.A.T. That’s that simple,” Humphries told The Athletic about Brady. “But there’s so much that factors into a decision. It was a four-year deal. Who knows how many (years) he’s got left? There’s a lot that goes into it.”Brady, who turns 42 is August, is entering his 20th season in New England. He has said he hopes to play until age 45.”Obviously the chance to play with him would have been awesome, but a lot of things factor into that decision,” Humphries said. “Ultimately, I thought this was coming here to a team that was on the rise and with young talent on the offense and a really good defense. They’d had a taste of the playoffs. I felt like my need at the slot position was great. I felt like I could really contribute and start something new here.”
