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.

NFL Picks Week 3: Top Underdog Odds, Money-Line Advice and Predictions

Sep 19 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Week 3 NFL odds present a strange task for bettors. Only five spreads opened with a team favored by a touchdown or more. In other words, Las Vegas figures the week will be a highly competitive one, which is great from an entertainment standpoint but not so great for bettors. To be fair, though, massive spreads in contests such as Oakland traveling to New England are more than justified, as are tiny spreads ...

Chicago Bears vs. New York Jets: Breaking Down New York's Game Plan

Sep 18 2014 8:42pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Without a doubt, last week's loss to the Green Bay Packers will linger in the New York Jets' minds for quite some time, but it is time to repair the damage they have done to their record by taking care of the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.  Coming off an impressive come-from-behind win over the San Francisco 49ers last week, the Bears are a particularly intriguing matchup for the Jets because of their stark ...

Fantasy Football Week 3: Skill Position Players to Leave on Bench

Sep 17 2014 8:59pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

We can’t all have Peyton Manning, Calvin Johnson and LeSean McCoy on our fantasy team, which means there are difficult lineup decisions to be made every week. The same holds true for Week 3, as fantasy football players try to guess which reliable players bounce back from early struggles and which breakout stars are for real. While there will always be an element of luck involved in fantasy football (especially with the rash of injur ...

Fantasy football waiver wire: 5 quarterbacks to target for Week 3

Sep 16 2014 7:30am CDT | Source: SBNation

Week 2 brought a lot of injuries and you may be looking for a quarterback to replace Robert Griffin III on your fantasy team. The quarterback world was quiet in Week 2 with only four quarterbacks throwing for more than two touchdowns: Aaron Rodgers: Jay Cutler, Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning. Besides those guys, players such as Kirk Cousins, Russell Wilson, Joe Flacco, Cam Newton, Andy Dalton and Geno Smith turned in solid games ...

New York Jets Show Plenty of Promise Despite Loss to Green Bay Packers

Sep 15 2014 11:11pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Blowing double-digit leads against a heavily favored team and Super Bowl contender is about as low as it gets on the "bad loss" meter of NFL losses. Throw in the fact that their would-be game-tying touchdown was wiped out by a phantom timeout from their own sideline, and this recent loss falls into line with every "Same Old Jets" mantra that is so carelessly thrown around.  Lost in the disappointment ...

Geno Smith Continues Development Toward New York Jets Franchise Quarterback

Sep 15 2014 6:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Geno Smith and the New York Jets lost to the Green Bay Packers in Week 2 of the NFL season. After taking a 21-3 lead midway through the second quarter, the Packers relied on Aaron Rodgers to drag them back to a 31-24 victory. Smith and the offense failed to move the ball effectively or put points on the board after their initial surge. In spite of the result in the game and how that result came about, Smith impressed individually. His numbers weren ...
