Eric Decker caught 4-of-5 targets for 49 yards in the Titans' Week 3 win over the Seahawks.
Going to war with Richard Sherman, Decker got called for offensive pass interference. He also committed a holding penalty that brought back a Marcus Mariota rushing score. Both the catches and yards were actually new season highs for Decker, who seems to be slowly coming alive in his new offense. With Corey Davis (hamstring) likely to miss Week 4, Decker will be a solid WR4 against the Texans. Sep 24 - 8:14 PM

Eric Decker hauled in three-of-five targets for 32 yards Sunday in the Titans’ Week 2 win over the Jaguars.

All of his targets came before halftime. Decker absorbed Marcus Mariota’s first two completions for a combined 26 yards but was rarely heard from after that. Sunday’s clunker comes on the heels of an even worse performance in Week 1 (three catches for 10 yards on eight targets). Tennessee admittedly didn’t have to throw much in Sunday’s blowout, but Decker’s slow start is still troubling, especially with another tough game on the schedule next week against Seattle.

Eric Decker caught 3-of-8 targets for 10 yards in the Titans' Week 1 loss to the Raiders.

Decker had an inefficient day in his Titans debut, though he did draw a pair of red zone targets. Neither were clean enough looks to score. The Titans were jumbled at the top of their receiver corps, with each of Decker, Corey Davis and Rishard Matthews drawing at least eight targets. Decker should be considered a touchdown-dependent WR4 as things sort themselves out in Tennessee.

Eric Decker (ankle) returned to Titans practice on Tuesday.

Decker missed roughly a week of practice. Decker is a touchdown-scoring force when healthy, but now 30, he's coming off major hip and shoulder operations. Decker's upside is palpable, but there is some risk. Nevertheless, his price point has been favorable all summer in fantasy drafts.

Eric Decker (ankle) is out for Sunday's preseason game against the Bears.

Harry Douglas (knee) has also been ruled out while DeMarco Murray's (hamstring) status has yet to be determined. This is a new injury for Decker, who was sidelined for much of last season while battling hip and shoulder ailments. The Titans are probably erring on the side of caution here, but Decker's status will certainly need to be monitored leading up to Week 1.

Eric Decker "continues to look good" in Titans training camp.

In-house writer Jim Wyatt also emphasized Decker's expected role in the red zone. Now on the wrong side of 30, Decker is coming off serious hip and shoulder operations, but appears to be 100 percent healthy. He'll be a WR3 with WR2 upside in Tennessee.
Aug 1 - 3:31 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Eric Decker will start out in the slot.

Decker will also split time at the Z spot with Rishard Matthews. It's similar to the role Decker had with the Jets. Decker is in the early stages of getting acclimated to the Titans' scheme. He should start opposite Matthews in two-wide sets.

Eric Decker's one-year contract with the Titans is worth $3.85 million.

Jeremy Maclin's two-year deal with the Ravens is worth $11 million. Decker gets a $1.35 million base salary and $2.5 million signing bonus. Another $1.5 million is available via incentives. It's quite the pay cut after Decker was scheduled to earn a $6.5 million salary from the Jets, but he'll likely trade the pay cut for a better chance to win in a city where he's always wanted to play. Decker is a serious candidate to lead the Titans in catches and receiving touchdowns.

Titans signed WR Eric Decker, formerly of the Jets, to a one-year contract.

The Jets continued their roster purge by dumping Decker last week. After fielding a relatively weak group last season, the Titans have beefed up their receiving corps this offseason by drafting Western Michigan standout Corey Davis with the fifth overall pick and now by scooping up Decker. Hip and shoulder issues limited Decker to just three games in 2016 but he's now at full health and should give Marcus Mariota another big body to throw to inside the red zone. The Titans are suddenly flush with pass-catchers with Decker, Davis, Rishard Matthews and Delanie Walker all slated for important roles.

MMQB's Albert Breer floats the Browns as a team to "keep an eye on" for free agent Eric Decker.

Decker left his Titans visit without a contract, while the Ravens seem resigned to not entering the bidding despite initial interest. In Cleveland, Decker would man the slot with Corey Coleman and Kenny Britt bookending him out wide. Cleveland would be one of Decker's worst-case fantasy landing spots.

Coach Mike Mularkey called free agent Eric Decker's Wednesday meeting with the Titans a "get to know you visit."

"We brought him in, and I talked to him this morning for about 25 minutes," Mularkey said. "I got a chance to meet him; I’d never met him. It’s similar to a draft (visit), when you do the top-30 visits, it’s a similar situation. You get a chance to meet them and do a physical. The whole visit was to get to know him, and make sure he is healthy." As Decker lives in Nashville, it's conceivable he would be willing to take less money to play for the Titans.

Free agent WR Eric Decker is visiting the Titans on Wednesday.

Twitter user @fhnixon broke the news first, and ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed it. It's Decker's first visit since he was cut by the Jets on Monday. The Titans have made it a point to overhaul their receiving corps this offseason, already adding first- and third-rounders Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor. Decker would give Marcus Mariota another big inside presence to go with Delanie Walker. It's worth noting Decker's wife is a country singer and the couple has a home in Nashville.

Owner Steve Bisciotti indicated Tuesday that the Ravens won't be pursuing free agent Eric Decker.

Bisciotti believes the Ravens are set at receiver with Breshad Perriman and Chris Moore behind Jeremy Maclin and Mike Wallace, and Baltimore's greater need is on the offensive line. "We’ve got some money and we’re quite sure that some offensive line help is going to shake out," said Bisciotti. "I’d say that I don’t think that we have room for a starter at wide receiver now ... I think I’m going to save that last punch for an offensive lineman."

Broncos coach Vance Joseph "shot down any interest" in free agent Eric Decker.

Joseph is "happy with the group we have now." Signing Decker would have made more sense before Denver invested a day-two pick on Carlos Henderson, who will man the slot between Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Beyond Baltimore, serious suitors for Decker have yet to emerge.

Speaking at minicamp, coach John Harbaugh said "a lot of factors will go into deciding" whether the Ravens pursue free agent Eric Decker.

Harbaugh also confirmed GM Ozzie Newsome will "make that decision." The Ravens are short on cap space, but they could tweak the contracts of players like RG Marshal Yanda and CB Jimmy Smith to make additional room. Acquiring Decker would bump Breshad Perriman back into a rotational outside role.
