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 Becoming a Star for Broncos Offense

Oct 24 2014 3:26am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Denver Broncos were one of the most active teams in free agency earlier this year. Most of their attention (and money) was spent on upgrading the defensive side of the ball. However, the team did add one free agent on offense who has made a world of difference. Emmanuel Sanders has become a star for the Broncos offense. Tough decisions had to be made in regards to free agents this offseason. Fan fa ...

Broncos 35, Chargers 21: Instant Reactions

Oct 23 2014 10:42pm CDT | Source: milehighreport

Hat tricks aren't just for hockey anymore, are they Sanders? I'm not gonna lie, each time I thought about this game I flip flopped over total domination by Denver, or some fluky miracle that would get the Chargers the win. Thankfully, tonight was the former and the Broncos dominated. The score? Bah, the score was closer than the game. This was a beat ass from the get go. At no point was Denver ever in danger of losing this game, and ...

Why Greg Salas Is New York Jets' Most Underrated Player

Oct 23 2014 2:29pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The New York Jets aren’t flush with perennial talent at wide receiver, but they’re also not completely devoid of playmaking ability. Offseason acquisitions Chris Johnson and Eric Decker stole the limelight during training camp, offering fans the hope that New York was capable of becoming a legitimate scoring threat. But other players, particularly those who fly under the radar, have arguably been more pro ...

What Does Jeremy Kerley's New Contract Mean for the New York Jets?

Oct 23 2014 2:14pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

One by one, the New York Jets are stockpiling receivers for their formerly weaponless offense. In the offseason, it was free-agent wide receiver Eric Decker who was added to the arsenal. Last week, the Jets made a trade with the Seattle Seahawks to acquire wide receiver Percy Harvin. Now the Jets have taken care of one of their own with a contract extension for wide receiver Jeremy Kerley. The new deal is worth $16 million with $5.4 million guaranteed, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN. The Je ...

Percy Harvin was traded. The 49ers and Giants are off this week. Calvin Johnson and A.J. Green are injured. Our rankings will help you deal with all these situations. Demaryius Thomas absolutely crushed it in Week 7. He is on a tear over the last few weeks and should be able to continue his roll this week against the San Diego Chargers. Among the other top receivers for Week 7 were Sammy Watkins and Golden Tate. Watkins has really come on with Kyle Orton at quarterback. ...

Start 'Em, Sit 'Em Week 8: Making the Call on Fantasy Football Fringe Starters

Oct 22 2014 6:30am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Fantasy football owners are at the point in the season where fringe starters are not only the most difficult choice they have to make on a weekly basis, but those starters also decide matchups in that same span. Look at, say, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu last week. After two straight games of double-digit production and with A.J. Green watching in sweatpants from the sideline, Sanu went out and nabbed just five points while struggling with drops. Those who started ...

Breaking: Seahawks trade WR Percy Harvin to Jets

Oct 17 2014 5:57pm CDT | Source: Fantasy Football Toolbox

According to Jay Glazer via twitter, the Seattle Seahawks have traded Percy Harvin to the New York Jets for a conditional draft pick(s). The sixth-year receiver has 225 total yards from scrimmage and only one touchdown on the season so far. FANTASY ANALYSIS: Even with the addition of Eric Decker in the offseason, the Jets currently rank 30th in passing offense so far this season. The Jets clearly wanted to add a dynamic playmaker to their roster and have done so with Percy Harvin. The questi ...
