Each week, we take a look at what some of the former Clemson standouts are doing in the NFL. Here’s a look at what went down in Week 2:
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver/return specialist Adam Humphries had quite a game on Sunday, matching a career high with six receptions in Tampa’s road game against the Arizona Cardinals. With 67 receiving yards, Humphries was one of quarterback Jameis Winston’s primary weapons on the day. Originally undrafted in 2015, Humphries has experienced a meteoric rise up the depth chart since signing with the Bucs and is now a key cog of the Tampa Bay offense.
Another receiver made a mark in the game between the Bucs and Cardinals. The always reliable Jaron Brown hauled in a 51-yard touchdown catch below from Carson Palmer, as Arizona routed Tampa Bay by a score of 40-7.
Carson Palmer + @jaronbrown13 = SIX! 51 yards! #BeRedSeeRed #TBvsAZ https://t.co/Gn5cCyJ5D3 — NFL (@NFL) September 18, 2016

Houston Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins scored his second touchdown of the season in as many games this past weekend, helping lead his team to a home victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. With seven catches for 113 yards, ‘Nuk’ was the game’s leading receiver in both categories and seems primed for another Pro Bowl season.
Washington Redskins cornerback Bashaud Breeland compiled nine total solo tackles in the rivalry matchup with the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon. With 15 solo tackles through the first two games, Breeland leads the Redskins in that department, which is impressive for a cornerback.
Elsewhere, San Francisco 49ers punter Bradley Pinion was active over the weekend, amassing 318 yards on seven punts, four of which landed inside of the 20-yard line. In addition to three tackles, rookie Tennessee Titans defensive end Kevin Dodd picked up his first career sack in a victory over the Detroit Lions.
