Eric Decker's deal worth $3.85 million

Eric Decker's one-year contract with the Tennessee Titans has a base salary of $1.35 million, a $2.5 million signing bonus, and $1.5 million available via incentives.

Fantasy Impact

This is a pay cut for Decker, who was scheduled to make $6.5 million before being released by the New York Jets. But the pay cut may be well worth it, as Decker lands in a city with a better QB and a better chance to win. If Decker stays healthy this season, and produces like he is has in the past, he could be a viable WR2 and lead the Titans in receptions and receiving touchdowns.

Eric Decker signs with Titans

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Tennessee Titans and free agent wide receiver Eric Decker have agreed to terms on a one-year deal on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

After visiting with the team last week during minicamp, Decker signed with the Titans Sunday, almost as expected. The veteran wideout's addition is yet another weapon added to Marcus Mariota's arsenal this offseason with the hopes of having a breakout year in 2017. Decker will likely open the season as Tennessee's No. 3 wideout behind Rishard Matthews and Corey Davis, sending Tajae Sharpe to the WR4 spot. Decker should be viewed in the WR3 tier entering fantasy draft prep season.

Eric Decker officially released

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the New York Jets are officially releasing wide receiver Eric Decker on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Although the Jets held on to Decker hoping to facilitate a trade, reports suggest that inquiring teams wanted New York to eat some of the receiver's salary, therefore, nulling any hope of a deal. With Decker now open to sign with any team, he is not expected to last long on the market. Expect the Bills, Eagles, Rams, Cowboys and Lions to be in the running for his services.

Eric Decker remains with Jets, for now

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the New York Jets are "not planning" on releasing wide receiver Eric Decker Wednesday. The Jets are "still hoping" that they can work out a trade for him.

Fantasy Impact

The Jets will move on from Decker, it's just a matter of when. By not releasing him Wednesday, New York will attempt to work out a trade for him, per Schefter. If a deal cannot be worked out, then the Jets will likely release the veteran wideout. Expect a move one way or another before the start of training camp in late July.

Eric Decker cleared for football activities

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting free agent wide receiver Eric Decker (hip/ shoulder) has been medically cleared for football activities.

Fantasy Impact

In the wake of learning of his impending release or trade, Decker, who underwent offseason hip and knee surgeries, was cleared for football activities Tuesday. It's a tidbit of good news for a player who is out of a job. However, don't expect the veteran receiver to linger on the open market for very long. Not only has he received a clean bill of health, but there are a plethora of wide receiver-needy teams that will likely be calling on him. Expect Decker, 30, to land with a potential contender as he is entering the back end of his career.
