Eric Decker: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Decker has reached agreement on a contract with the Jets, NFL Network's Albert Breer reports. The deal is for five years and worth $36.25 million ($15 million guaranteed), according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The top wide receiver in free agency is now off the board, to a team with as great of a need at the position as any, given the Jets' collective struggles in the passing game the last couple of seasons. The Broncos' stocked receiving corps often forced opposing defenses to divert their attention from Decker during Peyton Manning's record-setting 2013 campaign, but the move to New York ensures Decker will be shadowed by the opposing team's No. 1 cornerback every game. Decker will be hard-pressed to maintain his productivity with the Jets even with the likelihood of added targets coming in his direction, but another 1,000-yard season would still seem to be attainable.
Decker, who is officially an unrestricted free agent, is visiting with the Jets on Wednesday, the Denver Post reports.

The Colts are believed to be interested in signing Decker, who is slated to become an unrestricted free agent next month, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Colts are in pretty good shape in terms of the salary cap, so making a run at Decker is a plausible scenario in the event the team makes adding another proven wideout to the mix (with Reggie Wayne bouncing back from an ACL injury) an offseason priority.
Decker, who is set to hit free agency for the first time in his career, said he would like to return to the Broncos, NBC 9 in Denver reports. "I would love to come back. I don't know my future either," he said. "It makes it more real. And you just appreciate again what this year has meant to all of us."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Decker is coming off another big year, posting 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns on 87 catches. The productive season was preceded by a very impressive 2012 campaign that saw him catch 85 passes for 1,064 yards and 13 touchdowns. Those are certainly numbers of a No. 1 wideout, although with Demaryius Thomas around -- and not hitting free agency for another year -- it's unlikely that the Broncos will pay Decker like a No. 1. Unless Decker is willing to take a significant discount to stay in Denver, his days as a Bronco are likely numbered.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

It's no fluke to finish second in the league in touchdown catches (13) when you lead it in red-zone targets (25). Decker didn't match teammate Demaryius Thomas in efficiency, production or big-play ability, but he surpassed him in scoring. And Decker (8.7 YPT, 13th) was no slouch on a per-play basis, either. At 6-3, 218, Decker has good size, and he's often going to see single coverage with Thomas on the opposite side. The arrival of Wes Welker is likely to impact Decker the most, but Welker's not a big scoring threat, and there's no reason Peyton Manning won’t continue to lean on Decker (12-for-25 conversion rate) when the team gets close to pay dirt.

2012

Decker started off strong last year, then disappeared down the stretch as Tim Tebow locked in on Demaryius Thomas as his top receiver. While Thomas is the better athlete and has the higher ceiling, the arrival of Peyton Manning in Denver means there’s now room for two productive wideouts at the same time. As such, the 6-3, 218-pound Decker finds himself in a good spot. With Thomas banged up this offseason, Decker, who has himself recovered from a sprained MCL, has been working out with Manning since the day he signed and apparently is developing a rapport. Decker’s not a burner, but he’s got decent speed for his size, and he’s a polished route runner, something that should matter a lot more with Manning than it did with Tebow.

2011

Decker heads into the 2011 season with a clear opportunity to prove he belongs in a starting role. Brandon Lloyd dominated the headlines for receivers in Denver, while the receivers around Decker on the depth chart, namely Eddie Royal and Matthew Willis, did little in 2010 to guarantee their roles in 2011. With Demaryius Thomas still fighting his way back from injury and Jabbar Gaffney off to Washington in a trade, Decker definitely has solid sleeper potential this season.

2010

Decker should get an opportunity to contribute in 2010 because of the overall lack of talent in the Broncos' wide receiver depth chart. With the departure of Brandon Marshall, Decker's competition for playing time comes down to Jabar Gaffney, Eddie Royal, fellow rookie Demaryius Thomas, Brandon Lloyd and Brandon Stokley; not exactly Pro Bowl talent. Due to the opportunity to get on the field, Decker could be an interesting sleeper in 2010.
