Free Agent WR Eric Decker reaches agreement with New York Jets

Late Wednesday night, free agent wide receiver Eric Decker found himself a new home as, in a move that has been expected the past few days, he has come to terms with the New York Jets, remaining in the AFC.


As the Jets look to upgrade their offense a bit, Decker is a great way to start that process. For the past two seasons, he was a popular target of Peyton Manning’s in the Denver Broncos offense.

However, that also begs the next question: Who will be the one throwing him the ball?

If there is one more are that the team needs to improve at, it’s quarterback, which they are rumored to be in the process of doing by going after Michael Vick.

Also, as of this point, Decker seems like the best option at wide receiver in New York for the time being, so he’ll now get the chance to show off whether or not he can be a number one receiver.
