According to Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com, the Browns are another team worth keeping an eye on for free agent WR Eric Decker. Breer adds that Cleveland has done some work on Decker since news surfaced that he was available.
Decker just finished visiting with the Titans, so his market appears to be still developing at this point in time.
Regarding the meeting, Titans HC Mike Mularkey said it was just a chance to meet him and have him take a physical.
“We brought him in and I talked to him this morning for about 25 minutes and got a chance to meet him. I never met him,” Mularkey said, via Jason Wolf of the Tennessean. “Similar to our draft, when you do the top 30 visits. Similar situation. Get a chance to meet him and do a physical.”
Decker, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Broncos back in 2010. He spent four years in Denver before signing a five-year, $36.25 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed with the Jets as a free agent back in 2014.
Decker was set to make base salaries of $7.25 million and $7.5 million over the remaining two years of the agreement when the Jets officially released him on Tuesday.
In 2016, Decker was limited to appearing in just three games and catching nine passes for 194 yards receiving and two touchdowns before he was placed on season-ending injured reserve with both hip and shoulder injuries.
