NFL Rumors: Jacksonville Jaguars trying to sign Eric Decker


The Jacksonville Jaguars are flush with salary cap space as they enter free agency and it appears they’ve got a nice list of players they’re going to try and bring and try to improve with in 2014. They’ve already locked up former Seattle Seahawks defensive end Red Bryant to a nice long-term deal and that likely won’t be the last one handed out by the Jaguars.

According to Mike Klis from the Denver Post, the Jaguars are targeting free gent wide receiver Eric Decker as the signing period prepares to open.

Per the Denver Post:

Jacksonville figures to be one of the most aggressive teams in free agency as it has roughly $60 million in salary-cap space. The Jaguars have also expressed interest in Broncos receiver Eric Decker.

Decker going to the Jaguars was a likely option, as he’s looking to cash in on his rise with the Broncos and may not be looking for a contender. Bad teams like the Jets, Raiders and Jaguars seemed the likeliest option for Decker as he’s not going to take less money to go anywhere other than Denver.

Of the bad teams with cap space, the Jaguars are the most intriguing, and landing Decker would help them go from intriguing to appealing to other free agents.
