Eric Decker signs with Titans

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

Receiver was a position that needed carpet-bombing, however, and that continued late in the process on Sunday when general manager Jon Robinson agreed to terms with recently deposed New York Jets receiver Eric Decker on a one-year deal. The New York Jets had little use for an aging veteran on a team going nowhere, so it's understandable why they let him go, but like Jeremy Maclin before him, he still has plenty left. Decker, 30, played in only three games last season and underwent surgeries on his hip and shoulder last fall.

It was reported earlier in the week that the former Jets' wide receiver was in Tennessee making his visit with the team.

The aptly titled "exotic smashmouth" football turned things around a bit for the Tennessee Titans in 2016, but if Music City's favorite football team wants to compete on a more consistent basis in the modern NFL, the passing game has to take the next step. The team is hoping Floyd can fill that spot, but Laquon Treadwell, coming off a disappointing rookie season, also figures to get a chance. However, in each of his four seasons prior to that (2 with the Denver Broncos and 2 with the Jets), Decker reeled in at least 70 passes. But he said he wants to first earn the trust of his new teammates, starting in training camp. During his time with the franchise, Grantham developed an ironman reputation playing 175 out of a possible 182 games.

Eric Decker won't be returning to Minnesota. Between 2012 and 2015, Decker averaged 82 receptions for 1,085 yards and 10 touchdowns. Decker said he admires Mariota and believes they will have great chemistry on the field.

Larson outlasts Elliott at Michigan again
Paul Menard, Ty Dillon , Kyle Busch , Denny Hamlin , Brad Keselowski and Ryan Sieg will all gain extra seat time. Grant Enfinger leads second-place Chase Briscoe in the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings by four points.

Adding Decker to Davis, Taylor, Rishard Matthews, and Tajae Sharpe is a massive upgrade of weapons for Mariota, who is entering his third season. He's a talent, but I also like the way he carries himself. But I am happy with the guys we have now and the guys who are working.

"And he has a good supporting cast around him, a great offensive line".

"Excited to be joining the @Titans and my new band of brothers!"
