Eric Decker tweeted his good-bye to Jets fans Wednesday.

“I wish we could of accomplished more for you but I sincerely appreciate the support through all the ups and downs!” Decker said on Twitter.

In a separate tweet, Decker thanked the Jets “for the opportunity the last 3 years! I truly made some great memories and friendships that will last forever!”

General Manager Mike Maccagnan announced Tuesday night the Jets plan to release the receiver if they can’t trade him. Decker’s departure will save the Jets $7.25 million in cap room.

Decker, 30, has undergone two surgeries since November. He had a torn rotator cuff repaired during the season before undergoing surgery on his hip a month ago.

Decker made 163 catches for 2,183 yards and 19 touchdowns in three seasons with the Jets. He has 385 receptions for 5,253 yards and 52 touchdowns in his seven-year career.

    He was a product of Manning that made him look better than he really was. Some team will still sign him as a #2 or #3 receiver.

    Dude averaged almost 1k yards and 8.5 TD’s a year with Jets QB’s throwing to him.

    Grade that on a curve and that’s like going 1500-15 with a normal one

    I’m extremely disappointed that he said “could of” instead of “could have.”

    30 years old and 2 surgeries in the last 9 months. Rotator cuff and hip – that effects his speed, quickness and ability to reach for the ball.

    Hmmmmm.

    Bet the Jets are gearing up to get one of the star college QBs that are coming out in next year’s draft.
