The New York Jets recently released wide receiver Eric Decker, in what has been a roster purging. Now as a free agent, he can choose where he continues his career. His first stop was in Tennessee, where he spent the day and watched practice with Mike Mularkey and John Robinson. This move makes sense for both parties. He and his wife, country singer Jessie James, have a home in Nashville. The Titans recently used draft picks to bolster a weak wide receiving unit, and added Western Michigan’s Corey Davis and Western Kentucky’s Taywan Taylor. Both picks have been getting very good reviews so far.
Eric Decker would bring a veteran presence to the unit, that Harry Douglas and Tajae Sharpe really can’t provide. While last season was cut short by injury, 2015 was a very good campaign for him. Decker left without a deal, but could see one offered in the coming days. The meeting was basically the Titans just touching bases with the former Jet, to see if he was healthy. If signed, he could give the Titans another reliable option, and could serve as a one way ticket out for the under-performing Harry Douglas or the accused bar brawler Tajae Sharpe.
