The Indianapolis Colts and free-agent wide receiver Eric Decker are said to have mutual interest, per multiple reports.

The Indianapolis Colts and free-agent wide receiver Eric Decker are said to have mutual interest, per multiple reports. 

A Feb. 26 update on The Indianapolis Star (via Twitter) has CBS Denver's Vic Lombardi saying Decker is indeed interested in suiting up for the Colts. 

"According to a tweet from CBS Denver's Vic Lombardi, the Colts are among teams interested in receiver Eric Decker. 

"'Among teams that have interest in Eric Decker...Indy. If he can't play with PFM, he'd love to roll with Andrew Luck.'

"Decker is coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with the Denver Broncos. He's also caught double-digit touchdowns in each of the past two seasons. The talented receiver will be a free agent this offseason."

Decker told SiriusXM NFL Radio in early February he is going to do what's "best for my family," per ESPN's Mike Wells.  

Indianapolis, which has the fourth-biggest salary cap space, is going to be frugal in adding players to its roster. This is what general manager Ryan Grigson hinted at the combine, Wells adds. 

NFL.com's Kevin Patra weighed in on Decker becoming a Colt. 

"The more prudent move for the Colts remains spending their money on pass protection, but chasing Decker is certainly the type of ostentatious move owner Jim Irsay loves. 

"Despite a gaggle of young receivers and pass-catching tight ends, Indy could view Decker as a long-term replacement for Reggie Wayne, after realizing last season what life without the veteran is like. 

"Decker's size and route running would be a nice complement alongside T.Y. Hilton and Da'Rick Rogers (who showed flashes of explosive potential last season). Wayne plans to return from his ACL tear, but taking some pressure off the 35-year-old is a necessity for the Colts. 

"NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported at the Super Bowl that the Broncos don't view Decker as a No. 1 receiver, an indicator the team is prepared to let him walk out the door.

"A jaunt over to join Luck in Indy would get Decker paid and keep him alongside a stud quarterback. That's what some might call a win-win-win for the receiver." 

For his part, Wells stresses Decker is more of a "solid No. 2 receiver" who doesn't square off against the opposing team's best cornerback on a weekly basis. If his asking price is suited for his role, then the Colts would be able to accommodate him.  

Decker hauled in 87 receptions for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2013 to help the Denver Broncos reach Super Bowl XLVIII.

Emmanuel Sanders and Montee Ball Ready to Take Broncos Offense to New Heights

Aug 24 2014 12:52am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Denver Broncos fell one game short of their goal last season, but general manager John Elway attacked the offseason as if his team wasn’t already the best team in the AFC. The offense wasn’t broke, but Elway decided to fix it anyway, and it’s a good thing he did. Elway elevated running back Montee Ball to the starting job by not bringing in competition and signed wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to replace the departed Eri ...

Smith, Vick throw TDs in Jets’ loss to Giants

Aug 22 2014 10:07pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Geno Smith looked every bit like a cool and confident starting quarterback. Michael Vick showed he can still make things happen on offence, too. Smith and Vick each threw for a touchdown with the New York Jets’ starters, and the defence mostly shut down Eli Manning before the Giants’ backups rallied for a 35-24 preseason victory Friday night. Smith, the likely starting quarterback for the Jets (2-1) after a solid preseason, was 9 of 14 for 137 yards, including a ...

New York entered its preseason Week 3 contest in need of a sign of life from its offense and starters under center. That goes for the Giants and Jets, rivals that battled to the bitter end in a 35-24 victory for the former at MetLife Stadium Friday night. For the Giants, Eli Manning's horrific, 27-interception campaign from last season has bled into this preseason in a major way. He entered Friday 7-of-16 passing for 49 yards and a turnover ...
