NFL Rumors: Eric Decker drawing interest from two mystery teams


The New York Jets are going to be meeting with free agent wide receiver Eric Decker on Wednesday but they’re not the only team with a visit lined up. While not unexpected, Decker is drawing interest from multiple teams and even has two other visits set up with mystery teams after the Jets.

According to Mike Florio from Pro Football Talk, the Jets were given first crack at Decker but two other teams are on the list and could snatch him away if the Jets don’t reach a deal.

Per Florio:

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Decker opted to give the Jets the first crack at signing him.  Two other teams are interested; Decker chose to travel to New York first.

This news might put pressure on the Jets to hammer out a deal while Decker is in New York. We don’t know who the mystery teams are but it’s a safe bet to include the Jaguars, Raiders and Colts among the possibilities. This could also be a smokescreen from a rival team looking to get the Jets to overpay for Decker out of fear they’ll lose him if he walks away without a contract.

We don’t know what is going to happen, but it’s clear that Decker will dominate at least part of the day two discussion in free agency.

    Decker used to have Tim Tebow attempt to throw to him, then he got Peyton Manning. In other words, no matter how much the Jets offer Decker, he won’t go to a team that doesn’t have a quarterback.

    Hey Decker… Now that you’re caching balls from a nobody instead of Manning, how many TD catches will you have 2 of 3? What a joker that guy is. Remember Tebow. Nobody even knew who you were until Manning showed up. Fantasy team loser now. Drop him fast.
