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.

More Yacking about YAC - Peyton Manning got his passing yards through the air

Jul 16 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: milehighreport

2014 CMT Music Awards - Arrivals
Do the best QBs get more or less from yards after the catch (YAC) than lower tier QBs? Where does Peyton fall in this? At the simplest level, there are only two types of routes that receivers run: ones where they catch the ball while standing still and ones where they are still moving when they catch the ball (Editor's note: whoa). It would stand to reason that QBs who completed more passes on routes where receivers are still in ...

New York Jets: Top Position Battles to Watch in Camp

Jul 14 2014 8:36pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

2014 CMT Music Awards - Arrivals
Training camp is a bit of a tease without the action of real games, but it offers a unique element of drama in the position battles that both can change careers and reshape rosters.  With 12 drafted rookies on the roster, competition will be aplenty on both sides of the ball. After not adding a bona fide free agent (excluding Eric Decker) in the spring, the Jets are depending on competition to be responsible for the bulk of their roster growth.  Here ...

Emmanuel Sanders of the Pittsburgh Steel
The day Emmanuel Sanders was signed I went back and watched four Steelers games from last season to get an idea of what type of player he is Recently there has been a lot of talk about what Emmanuel Sanders brings to the Broncos offense but after I had watched a few games much of it went against what I saw. I didn't want to say anything until I had the chance to watch the rest of his 2013 season ...

New York Jets Finally Have Balanced Team Rex Ryan Needs

Jul 10 2014 9:52pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

NY Jet's David Nelson Hosts i'mME Launch Event
The 2014 New York Jets will be unlike any other Jets we have seen under Rex Ryan, as they possess an attribute that has eluded his team since he took over in 2009: balance. Gone are the days when Ryan would have to lean on his prized defense to withstand the pressure of an anemic offense. For better or worse, the Jets will be a much more even team than Ryan has ever fielded. Much of this is thanks to an improved offense, but balance does not always equate to success on the field. As much as his ...
