Titans DT Karl Klug (Achilles') is expected to miss the start of training camp.

Klug was limited to walkthroughs at OTAs. He’ll likely open camp on the active/PUP list. Klug should be ready for Week 1.

The Nashville Tennessean speculates Tajae Sharpe (foot surgery) may have a "tenuous grasp on a roster spot" entering training camp.

Sharpe is expected to be ready for camp, but coach Mike Mularkey said he could have a "hard time" if he is not able to stay in shape. "Obviously he’s not going to run right now, but he’s got to do something to stay in shape," Mularkey said. "You’ve got to be ready to go. No matter what your injury is, there’s something you can do, cardio-wise, to train." After earning a starting job last year, Mularkey's comments suggest Sharpe could be competing for a roster spot this time around. Even if he sticks in Nashville, Sharpe is not going to be fantasy relevant behind Eric Decker, Corey Davis, and Rishard Matthews.

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.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey expects sophomore OLB Kevin Dodd (foot) to be ready for training camp.

"Highly likely unless he drops a weight on his foot," Mularkey said. Since undergoing "preventative" surgery last May, Dodd has struggled to stay healthy and said he was avoiding stressing the foot earlier this month, although the coach said he was running full speed on Thursday. All of that makes Mularkey's confidence seem optimistic, but it is better than the alternative. If he can get healthy, Dodd will play a rotational role behind Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan.

Marcus Mariota said trusting his leg is the final hurdle in his rehab.

Recovering from a broken leg, Mariota has seen work during OTAs and minicamp, but he will not be a full-go until training camp. "I think from a strength standpoint I'm good," Mariota said. "Now it's getting to the point of trusting myself to do it...So for me, that's my next step. For me, I've got to just go out and do it." As long as he remains setback free, Mariota has the look of an upside QB1.

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.
Jun 13 - 4:15 PM

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.
Jun 13 - 2:57 PM

Titans first-round WR Corey Davis (ankle) is a full participant in minicamp, and has proclaimed himself 100 percent healthy.

Davis underwent a "minor" January operation. The No. 5 overall pick won't be held back in training camp.
Jun 13 - 2:22 PM

NFL Network's Mike Garofolo "highly doubts" the Eagles will pursue free agent Eric Decker.

Garofolo says the Eagles made a run at Jeremy Maclin "because they like him and he likes them," but otherwise Philly is "comfortable with their receiver corps as is." Even after landing Maclin, the Ravens maintain interest in Decker and are probably the favorites to land him. The Bills lost out on Maclin, but it's unclear if their wide receiver interest would extend to Decker.

Jets released WR Eric Decker.

After announcing they planned to trade or release him at the end of last week, the Jets were true to their word. They saved $7.25M in cap space. The 30-year-old receiver is returning from hip and shoulder surgeries, but should have no issue finding immediate work. The Bills and Eagles are potential suitors given their pursuit of Jeremy Maclin. The move puts Quincy Enunwa in position to lead the Jets in targets and leaves rookie ArDarius Stewart with the largest and longest monetary commitment from the team at the wide receiver position. Decker, 30, averaged over 1,000 yards and ten touchdowns per season across 2012-2015 before his injury-shortened 2016.
