Rams, Titans Favored to Land Eric Decker

The Jets are parting ways with touchdown machine Eric Decker. Here are the odds on where the 30-year-old wideout lands.

 

Overhaul doesn't begin to describe what the Jets are doing.

Eric Decker will is latest to get his walking papers, as Gang Green cut him this week. Cutting Decker would save the Jets $7.25 million.

Suddenly, a 6-3, 214-pound red zone machine is available, and several receiver-needy teams are after him.

Since 2012, only four wideouts have scored more touchdowns than Decker. He recorded double-digit scores in 2015 (12), 2013 (11) and 2012 (13).

247SPORTS: WHY THE TITANS SHOULD SIGN ERIC DECKER

Last season, injuries cost him 13 games. But he's fully healthy now.

BookMaker.eu, a market-setting offshore sportsbook, released odds on where Decker will be playing come Week 1:

Los Angeles Rams +200 (risk $100 to win $200)
Tennessee Titans +250
Cleveland Browns +500
Buffalo Bills +750
Baltimore Ravens +800
San Francisco 49ers +1000
Chicago Bears +1200
Field -105 (risk $105 to win $100 on any other team)

The Rams desperately need help at wideout, as Tavon Austin and Robert Woods currently sit atop the depth chart. And Decker's catch radius would benefit second-year QB Jared Goff.

But I like the Titans to land Decker.

They're much closer to contending, and Decker already has a home in Nashville. He attended Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Penguins and Predators.

Decker would add veteran leadership to an extremely young receiving corps featuring No. 5 overall pick Corey Davis. It's a move that could put Tennessee back in the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

According to 247Sports, the Titans likely would release Harry Douglas or Tre McBride if they add Decker.
