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.

Even though excitement for the 2014 NFL season is reaching a fever pitch with the regular season starting on September 4, it is also an excruciating time for many players who have been trying to make a 53-man roster this preseason.  Saturday at 4 p.m. ET is the deadline for all 32 teams to have their final rosters set, meaning that a lot of players are in position to be cut and left looking for work with just days to go before games start.  While a lot of the cuts have been expected for some ...

Stephen Hill released by Jets

Aug 30 2014 10:51am CDT | Source: SBNation

The Jets finally cut ties with the disappointing wideout after a lackluster preseason. The New York Jets have released wide receiver Stephen Hill, per Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports. Hill was the team's second round choice in the 2012 NFL Draft. At 6'4, 215 lbs., Hill's size and athleticism set him apart heading into the draft and should have given the Jets a solid red zone target. Instead, Hill never lived ...

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 Eric Decker. On Saturday ...

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.
