Eric Decker Signs With Tennessee Titans

Former Minnesota Golden Gopher Eric Decker signed with the Tennessee Titans Sunday. The wide receiver signed a one-year deal.

Following the latest alcohol allegations of Vikings receiver Michael Floyd, Decker’s name was mentioned as a potential addition if Minnesota is forced to move on from Floyd. The Vikings will no longer have that option.

Decker was released by the New York Jets last week. He played in 3 games last season due to shoulder surgery. He caught nine passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns. In 2015, Decker had 80 catches for 1,027 yards and 12 touchdowns.

The 6-foot-3, 214-pound wideout will join an emerging offense featuring quarterback Marcus Mariota and running backs Demarco Murray and Derrick Henry. Decker, 30, could become the Titans number one target. Richard Matthews (27) was the teams leading receiver last season. Tennessee drafted Western Michigan’s Corey Davis fifth overall in the draft.

Decker is from Cold Spring, Minnesota. He’s married to country music singer Jesse James.
