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.

Dissecting Crucial Matchups in New York's Week 5 Matchup with San Diego

Sep 30 2014 6:52pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

After a disappointing strikeout to the NFC North, the New York Jets (1-3) begin the second quarter of the season against the San Diego Chargers (3-1) amid another tough three-game stretch. This week, the Jets must find a way to keep the red-hot hand of quarterback Philip Rivers from burning the defense as he’s done in the past three weeks—throwing for nine touchdowns without an interception. Gang Green must look deeper than the ...

Jets Paying the Price for John Idzik's Thrifty Philosophy

Sep 29 2014 10:50pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Following last season's strong finish, the New York Jets would have never imagined they would find themselves in a do-or-die position this early in the season. Not only were the Jets outperforming expectations with a young roster, but they were primed to make huge leaps in the talent spectrum with an abundance of cap space in draft picks to work with.  Instead, Rex Ryan finds himself trotting out the same undermatched team that is not much, if at all, more talented than the one ...

Rex Ryan's Stubbornness Will Ultimately Cost Him His Job with the Jets

Sep 28 2014 4:56pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Rex Ryan has coached worse teams. He has lost more games in a row. But he has never been this close to losing his job.  Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions does not end the New York Jets' chances at a playoff spot or seal them away from the division title—but it was the perfect illustration of the type of season the Jets would have to produce to signal the end of the Ryan era.   Even with a new qu ...
