2014 NFL Free Agency: New York Jets pushing hard for Eric Decker


The New York Jets have had their eye on current free agent likely former Denver Broncos’ wide receiver Eric Decker since long before the start of free agency.

The Jets, desperate to upgrade their skill positions, reportedly hoping to land both Decker and former Green Bay Packer James Jones to team with Jeremy Kerley in an attempt to turn arguably their weakest position into a position of strength.

Decker headed to the Meadowlands for a visit on Wednesday and the Jets apparently don’t want him to leave without a new contract.


Decker was drafted out of Minnesota with the 87th overall pick in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Broncos. After catching just six passes in his first season, Decker earned a bigger role in 2011. Once Peyton Manning arrived in 2012, Decker exploded and has had back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons.

Last season, Decker had 87 receptions for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns.
