Eric Decker visiting Titans Wednesday

Wide receiver Eric Decker’s release from the Jets hit the NFL’s transaction wire on Tuesday, leaving him free to start taking visits and talking contracts with other teams.

The wait for that process to begin was not a long one. In a move first reported by Nashville-based musician Kenneth Nixon — Decker’s wife Jessie is a country music artist and the couple has a home in the city — and confirmed by multiple NFL reporters, Decker is visiting with the Titans on Wednesday.

The Titans added Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor to their wide receiving group in this year’s draft to help make Marcus Mariota’s life easier in his third season running the offense and Decker would offer further assistance on that front. Tajae Sharpe, Rishard Matthews, Harry Douglas and Tre McBride are also on the roster.

Other teams may also entertain a pursuit of Decker, but, given the Titans’ desire to build up their receiving options and the Deckers’ connections to the city, a deal could wind up making enough sense to both sides that Decker’s first visit is his only one.

    Mike Mularkey could make him look good in the Music City

    As a close friend of the organization this would be a solid addition to the Titans, so long as he can up his blocking game (which is perceived to be weak by my friends in the front office)

    Solid player…proved he wasn’t just benefiting from Manning in Denver by putting up solid numbers with Jets QB play while he was there (see: Fitzpatrick 6 interceptions in 1 game). He will land somewhere quickly.

    Harry Douglas is expendable. Good guy. Great vet. For a younger Decker, easy decision. Go Titans!

    Hey why not? We have cap space & no one to really pay for 2-3 more years. Front load the contract & cut him if it doesn’t work out.

    Would be great pick up for the titans. Real solid WR and would really help Marriota.

    The Oilers would do well to sign Decker. Although he is prone to the occasional fall to the turf via grass snake, he is a very dependable and underrated receiver.

    Your posts have literally never been funny. At all. You try way too hard.

    Tajae Sharpe outburst in 3….2….

    I’m just amused that the Titans are now a promising, young team with some actual playoff prospects on the horizon while the Jets facility is literally the last place any NFL player wants to end up.

    Couldn’t happen to a better fanbase.

    I’d love to see Decker in Vikings uni this fall. He was great at the U of Minnesota, and it would be fun to see him back in town again. Besides, the Vikes could use a sure-handed receiver like Decker.

    Sign him up! Titans could be scary good on offense if he’s added. Young and hungry.

    Before signing on the dotted line, go visit Philly first. It’s clear Awfulor is not worthy of a 1st round pick. Wow…Jeffrey, Smith and Decker. Still think Ertz is overpaid….
