If you’ve ever wanted a behind-the-scenes look at the NFL free agency process, odds are you’ll get one on E’s Eric & Jessie, a reality show featuring WR Eric Decker, and his country music star wife, Jessie James.
Denver’s got some tough choices to make with only $4.8 million available under the cap and glaring needs on defense. Decker, Denver’s third-round pick out of Minnesota in ’10, will join RB Knowshon Moreno on the open market.
Decker’s agent ought to be thrilled with his career-high 87 receptions for 1,288 yards in a contract year. His 11 touchdowns were down two from 13 in ’12. He might be labeled a beneficiary of a Peyton Manning-led offense, but with little competition in a talent-deprived pool of free agent wide receivers, Decker should fetch top dollar.
