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.

New York Jets Problems Run Much Deeper Than Just Quarterback

Nov 4 2014 1:04pm CST | Source: Bleacher Report

Michael Vick. Geno Smith. Doesn't matter. Sure, the New York Jets (1-8) may be a little better if they held a true quarterback competition this offseason, but they would be a losing team regardless of who had started a majority of their first nine games of the season.  Of course it would help if the Jets had someone like Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning or New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady under center—what team wouldn ...

How the New York Jets Are Getting the Most out of Percy Harvin

Nov 3 2014 9:50pm CST | Source: Bleacher Report

New York Jets general manager John Idzik has taken a beating over the course of the season with his team at 1-8 in large part thanks to his decisions, but the midseason acquisition of Percy Harvin is proving to be at least one transaction the embattled Idzik has gotten right.  In just his second week on the team, Harvin had one of the most productive afternoons of his career against the Kansas City Chiefs, reeling in 11 passes for 129 yards.  It is only two weeks in to the Harvin experiment ...

Michael Vick, Chris Ivory struggle in fantasy as Jets lose

Nov 3 2014 7:30am CST | Source: SBNation

New York held on to the ball and gained some yardage, but barely sniffed the end zone Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications. A change in quarterback over the week, and then briefly another midgame, didn't fix the New York Jets' scoring offense Sunday. The Jets lost 24-10 to the Kansas City Chiefs, the team's eighth-straight loss since starting the season 1-0. A week after turning the ball over six times, the Jets didn ...

Horse Tracks: The Denver Broncos picking up the pieces and moving on

Nov 3 2014 6:00am CST | Source: milehighreport

The Denver Broncos were annihilated 43-21 by the New England Patriots on Sunday. The players need to pick up the pieces of that game and move on to work towards getting back into position to secure homefield advantage. They'll need to be pretty much perfect from here on out to do it. The Denver Broncos were able to get past their annual house of horrors trip to the Northeast with y ...

Michael Vick, Eric Decker, Percy Harvin's Post-Week 9 Fantasy Reaction

Nov 2 2014 1:30pm CST | Source: Bleacher Report

The days of Michael Vick being a viable fantasy quarterback are well in the past. Once arguably the NFL's most exciting player, Vick is now a 34-year-old who has lost a step and is languishing on a pretty poor offense. That isn't exactly a recipe for fantasy prominence.    In the first half against the Kansas City Chiefs, Vick was 8-of-9 for 43 passing yards and a score, while also rushi ...

Percy Harvin starts against the Chiefs in sub-par fantasy matchup

Nov 2 2014 11:21am CST | Source: SBNation

Percy Harvin will start against the Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications. New York Jets receiver Percy Harvin will start in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He will replace Jeremy Kerley in the starting lineup. It is really more of a formality. Harvin did say the change at quarterback hasn't fazed him, which isn't a surprise considering quarterback Geno Smith has been arguably the worst player in the league. Harvin only pl ...

Darrelle Revis Once Again Making Dominance Look Easy

Oct 31 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Darrelle Revis is once again challenging receivers at the line of scrimmage, playing with leverage and showing the closing speed that has him back in the mix as one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL. Today, let’s break down the tape on Revis and focus on the technique that is allowing the veteran to win one-on-one matchups in the New England Patriots defensive schemes. After doing a four-game study (Bengals, Bills, Jets, Bears), here are my notes on Revis as the Patriots prep for ...

The Kansas City Chiefs are 4-3, above .500 for the first time this season and want to continue their hot run after winning four of their last five games. Coming up, the Chiefs play host to the New York Jets, who have gone through a ton of mishaps this year. As you will notice below, one major key for both teams will be protecting their own quarterback. Preventing the opposing defense from getting pressure and sacks will allow the offense ...
