Eric Decker Could Be Jets Next Roster Cut?

A source tells Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that it would not be surprising to see the Jets also release veteran WR Eric Decker if/when he’s able to pass a physical this offseason.

This comes shortly after the news that the Jets plan to move on from veteran WR Brandon Marshall.

So far, the Jets have already released Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold, Nick Folk and Breno Giacomini this offseason, which has amounted to $34 million of available cap space to work with.

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 stands to make base salaries of $7.25 million and $7.5 million over the remaining two years of the agreement.

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Decker would free up $5.75 million of available cap space while creating $3 million in dead money.

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.

We’ll have more regarding Decker’s future with the Jets as the news is available.
