Tennessee Titans sign free agent WR Eric Decker

Report: WR Decker, Titans agree to one-year deal

They signed recently released New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker to a one-year contract on Sunday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter's source.

Decker was released by the Jets last Monday, a day before the start of mandatory minicamp, as part of an ongoing purge of veteran talent.

Decker played only three games last season for the Jets before being placed on injured reserve in October. With the Titans, Decker figures to step in as one of the team's starting receivers.

"Mulling over some of my options, I just felt like this was the right fit, " Decker said. He's also turned in 12 100-yard performances.

Matthews led Tennessee's offense with 945 receiving yards and nine touchdowns last season, but the Titans' receiving corps was truly the offense's one glaring hole. He has 33 touchdowns in the red zone since 2012, second in the National Football League only to Brandon Marshall (35) in that span.

If it wasn't clear already, it is now; It's Marcus Mariota's year to have a breakout season. In 2015, Decker had 80 receptions for 1,027 yards and 12 touchdowns.

He started 31-of-33 games with the team and caught 163 passes for 2,183 yards and 19 touchdowns. Decker returned to the team's offseason program, however, as a full participant.

Following a workout, Mariota was asked about the possible Decker signing but said the deal was not signed so he said he could not make any comment. Corey Davis was drafted as the No. 5 pick overall and Taywan Taylor was taken by Tennessee in the third round. But I am happy with the guys we have now and the guys who are working.

Receivers Eric Weems and Tre' McBride will also be looking over their shoulders in camp with the two rookies and an established veteran such as Decker joining the fold.

"I am excited. It's good to get this process over and join the Titans".
