Tom Pelissero of USA Today tweeted out the details of Eric Decker’s contract with the Titans:

The money here really doesn’t matter. The Titans have plenty of cap room. I do like that the deal is structured to where about 30% of the deal is incentive based. It will be a win/win/win for both sides when Decker comes out and scores 10 touchdowns this season. He will be getting paid and the team will be winning.

Field Yates of ESPN likes this one year contract so much that he ranks it the the best of the offseason (In$ider). Here are his comments:

A last-minute qualifier for this list, Decker has a chance to serve as more than a critical part of the Titans' passing game. He also fills a leadership void in Tennessee's young receiving corps that features rookie first-round pick Corey Davis.

This team has made significant strides this offseason to help surround quarterback Marcus Mariota with superior talent than 2016, and Decker is another key addition. Though the 30-year-old played in just three games in 2016 season, he's only a year removed from a 1,000-yard receiving season in which he had 12 touchdowns.
