New, comments

Will the former Titans receiver find a home in New Orleans?

Eric Decker is visiting the New Orleans Saints per Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post:

We were all pretty excited when the Titans signed Decker last spring. It obviously didn’t work out the way we all hoped, although he did lead Titans’ receivers in catches with 54 catches (1 more than Rishard Matthews). I hesitate to call Decker done because I am giving everyone involved in the 2017 offense a pass because it was so poorly designed by Mike Mularkey and Terry Robiskie, but Decker wasn’t the sure handed receiver here that he had been at his other stops.

If Decker does end up with the Saints, he will have the opportunity to put up some numbers in that offense with Sean Payton calling plays and Drew Brees throwing him the ball.

Decker was a third round pick by the Denver Broncos back in 2010. For his career he has 439 catches for 5,816 yards and 53 touchdowns.

[UPDATE 11:40 AM]- Apparently Decker is visiting the Raiders not the Saints:
