Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Eric Decker will start out in the slot.

Decker will also split time at the Z spot with Rishard Matthews. It's similar to the role Decker had with the Jets. Decker is in the early stages of getting acclimated to the Titans' scheme. He should start opposite Matthews in two-wide sets.

Eric Decker's one-year contract with the Titans is worth $3.85 million.

Jeremy Maclin's two-year deal with the Ravens is worth $11 million. Decker gets a $1.35 million base salary and $2.5 million signing bonus. Another $1.5 million is available via incentives. It's quite the pay cut after Decker was scheduled to earn a $6.5 million salary from the Jets, but he'll likely trade the pay cut for a better chance to win in a city where he's always wanted to play. Decker is a serious candidate to lead the Titans in catches and receiving touchdowns.

Titans signed WR Eric Decker, formerly of the Jets, to a one-year contract.

The Jets continued their roster purge by dumping Decker last week. After fielding a relatively weak group last season, the Titans have beefed up their receiving corps this offseason by drafting Western Michigan standout Corey Davis with the fifth overall pick and now by scooping up Decker. Hip and shoulder issues limited Decker to just three games in 2016 but he's now at full health and should give Marcus Mariota another big body to throw to inside the red zone. The Titans are suddenly flush with pass-catchers with Decker, Davis, Rishard Matthews and Delanie Walker all slated for important roles.

MMQB's Albert Breer floats the Browns as a team to "keep an eye on" for free agent Eric Decker.

Decker left his Titans visit without a contract, while the Ravens seem resigned to not entering the bidding despite initial interest. In Cleveland, Decker would man the slot with Corey Coleman and Kenny Britt bookending him out wide. Cleveland would be one of Decker's worst-case fantasy landing spots.

Coach Mike Mularkey called free agent Eric Decker's Wednesday meeting with the Titans a "get to know you visit."

"We brought him in, and I talked to him this morning for about 25 minutes," Mularkey said. "I got a chance to meet him; I’d never met him. It’s similar to a draft (visit), when you do the top-30 visits, it’s a similar situation. You get a chance to meet them and do a physical. The whole visit was to get to know him, and make sure he is healthy." As Decker lives in Nashville, it's conceivable he would be willing to take less money to play for the Titans.

Free agent WR Eric Decker is visiting the Titans on Wednesday.

Twitter user @fhnixon broke the news first, and ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed it. It's Decker's first visit since he was cut by the Jets on Monday. The Titans have made it a point to overhaul their receiving corps this offseason, already adding first- and third-rounders Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor. Decker would give Marcus Mariota another big inside presence to go with Delanie Walker. It's worth noting Decker's wife is a country singer and the couple has a home in Nashville.

Owner Steve Bisciotti indicated Tuesday that the Ravens won't be pursuing free agent Eric Decker.

Bisciotti believes the Ravens are set at receiver with Breshad Perriman and Chris Moore behind Jeremy Maclin and Mike Wallace, and Baltimore's greater need is on the offensive line. "We’ve got some money and we’re quite sure that some offensive line help is going to shake out," said Bisciotti. "I’d say that I don’t think that we have room for a starter at wide receiver now ... I think I’m going to save that last punch for an offensive lineman."

Broncos coach Vance Joseph "shot down any interest" in free agent Eric Decker.

Joseph is "happy with the group we have now." Signing Decker would have made more sense before Denver invested a day-two pick on Carlos Henderson, who will man the slot between Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Beyond Baltimore, serious suitors for Decker have yet to emerge.
Jun 13 - 4:15 PM

Speaking at minicamp, coach John Harbaugh said "a lot of factors will go into deciding" whether the Ravens pursue free agent Eric Decker.

Harbaugh also confirmed GM Ozzie Newsome will "make that decision." The Ravens are short on cap space, but they could tweak the contracts of players like RG Marshal Yanda and CB Jimmy Smith to make additional room. Acquiring Decker would bump Breshad Perriman back into a rotational outside role.
Jun 13 - 2:57 PM

NFL Network's Mike Garofolo "highly doubts" the Eagles will pursue free agent Eric Decker.

Garofolo says the Eagles made a run at Jeremy Maclin "because they like him and he likes them," but otherwise Philly is "comfortable with their receiver corps as is." Even after landing Maclin, the Ravens maintain interest in Decker and are probably the favorites to land him. The Bills lost out on Maclin, but it's unclear if their wide receiver interest would extend to Decker.

Jets released WR Eric Decker.

After announcing they planned to trade or release him at the end of last week, the Jets were true to their word. They saved $7.25M in cap space. The 30-year-old receiver is returning from hip and shoulder surgeries, but should have no issue finding immediate work. The Bills and Eagles are potential suitors given their pursuit of Jeremy Maclin. The move puts Quincy Enunwa in position to lead the Jets in targets and leaves rookie ArDarius Stewart with the largest and longest monetary commitment from the team at the wide receiver position. Decker, 30, averaged over 1,000 yards and ten touchdowns per season across 2012-2015 before his injury-shortened 2016.
Jun 12 - 5:03 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Ravens remain in the hunt to acquire Eric Decker, even after signing Jeremy Maclin.

The Ravens are short on salary cap space, but even cap-strapped teams can make signings work if they really want to with restructurings and cuts elsewhere on the roster. We'd still consider Baltimore a long shot to land Decker, particularly via trade. ESPN's Josina Anderson reported the Eagles pursued Maclin before he signed with the Ravens, while the Bills were among Maclin's most ardent suitors. Those two clubs could now jump into the Decker bidding. The Jets are still trying to finagle a late-round pick.
Jun 12 - 3:45 PM

The MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Jets have had Eric Decker trade talks with the Ravens.

Breer reports the Jets have also had talks with other teams. The Jets are trying to get something for Decker before simply cutting him loose. The Ravens might be content to wait Gang Green out, as no other suitors have been officially reported. The Ravens, who just hosted free agent Jeremy Maclin for a visit, badly need receiving help. Decker would instantly be the No. 1.
Jun 8 - 5:41 PM

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley believes Eric Decker may be higher on Baltimore's wish list than free agent Jeremy Maclin.

Maclin is scheduled to visit the Ravens if/when he leaves Buffalo. Hensley wonders if it even matters now, since Decker better fits what the Ravens need, which is a big-bodied receiver who scores touchdowns in the red zone. Decker is just that at 6'3/214. Only Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall, Antonio Brown, and Demaryius Thomas have scored more touchdowns since 2012, and that's with Decker missing 13 games last season.
