Colts could be an interesting fit for Eric Decker

ericdecker AP

Soon-to-be free agent wide receiver Eric Decker would love to stay in Denver with Peyton Manning, but knows it’s time to take care of his family (i.e. get paid).

One potential landing spot could check off both boxes, or at least as approximately as possible.

According to Vic Lombardi of CBS 4 in Denver, the Colts could emerge as a possibility for the veteran wideout, who would “love to roll with Andrew Luck.”

If you’re going to leave Manning, Luck isn’t the worst fallback position.

And the Colts proved beyond a shadow of a doubt last year how much they need an alpha male wideout, as they weren’t the same team after Reggie Wayne’s injury.

Pairing a savvy player like Decker with the emerging T.Y. Hilton is an intriguing mix, and the Colts are still in the period when they can spend money before they have to spend it on a quarterback.

That might make the time right for them to make a move for Decker, if they think he can lift them over the top.

    They will still need a true #1 WR.

    I’d rather see him in a Patriots uniform.

    Take him out of the Denver offense and he is average at best.

    If a bum like cooper can get 5 years 25 mill, Decker will get 5 years 45 mill.

    Wherever he ends up, he’ll be overpaid.

    Product of Peyton’s system. Before Manning came Decker was an average player at best. Should give Manning 50% of whatever his next deal amounts to.

    He’s the kind of steady performer that every team needs. He knows how to get open, catches the ball, blocks down field, and is a solid person without baggage.
    He will gt paid, and it will be the correct amount for the present market relative to his talents.
    In Indy he’d step into Reggie Wayne’s role. Not a bad fit.

    Check his game stats from last season, he didn’t start making catches until opposing defenses realized Thomas and Welker were more dangerous. And still dind’t show for the SB.

    I’d be surprised if Manning didn’t step in to try to get Elway to sign Decker. then again, if manning is smart, he knows that money needs to go to DB’s

    I think it’d be a decent fit myself as well…

    We all know that he’s going to new England.tom brady and Peyton manning have a tendency of stealing each others receivers.

    Yep, no one can take care of their family on a few measly hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    Please, Eric Decker couldn’t even take out Reggie Wayne’s trash every week much less serve as a mentor! Don’t be fooled Colts fans. You and your team deserve much better!!!

    Decker was way better before he got a tv show. He just doesn’t put as much effort into football and it shows. I can’t wait for him to be out of Denver. His best fit will probably be in New England where they will make him work and not give him any special treatment. Good riddance.

    Such a Colts signing.

    They will waste Luck’s career.
