Titans add Eric Decker to receiving corps

One-year deal

The Tennessee Titans and former New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker have reached agreement on a one-year deal, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Decker, 30, underwent hip and shoulder surgeries last fall, but he is healthy and had been practicing before his release by the Jets. (ESPN)

Nerdy Football Analysis: The Jets have been dumping high priced veterans all off-season and Decker was no exception. Coming off an injury-plagued 2016 season, Decker has been participating in drills and gives the Titans a veteran presence in their receiving corps with a track record of scoring touchdowns. Given the run-first philosophy in Tennessee it’s doubtful Decker can post WR1 stats as in did in New York back in 2015 (80-1027-12) but he can hold spotty WR2 value in an offense that should have no trouble moving the football in 2016.

Jets couldn’t find a trade partner

After GM Mike Maccagnan announced that Eric Decker’s departure was imminent, the Jets have released the veteran receiver.

“We think very highly of Eric. Our focus right now is seeing our young players, how they do,” said Maccagnan earlier this week. “We wish Eric, going forward, a lot of success.” (NewYorkJets.com)

Nerdy Football Analysis: The Jets had been exploring trade options for Decker but couldn’t work out a deal. The Jets are flushing out the talent pool and rebuilding from the ground floor. Decker is coming off hip and shoulder injuries that limited him to three games last season but he should have interest from the Bills and Eagles who both were rumored to have interest in Jeremy Maclin.

Jets will trade or release him this week

Nerdy Football Analysis: The free agent wide receiver market has certainly picked up some steam the last couple days. First Jeremy Maclin was released by the Chiefs on Friday and not it appears Decker will be on the move. The Jets will save $5.75 million against the cap. Decker is coming off a torn rotator cuff. His landing spot later this week will determine his fantasy value.
