Tennessee Titans: Titans sign free agent Eric Decker to a one-year contract | June 18th, 2017
The short-term stint on the free agent market has officially ended for Eric Decker. The Tennessee Titans made it a priority this offseason to get help in the receiving game for Marcus Mariota and they addressed that in the draft as they selected Western Michigan star, Corey Davis.
Eric Decker is coming off an injury ridden season which saw him play in 3 games due in part to serious shoulder injuries which required surgery. Eric Decker was one of many surprising cuts by the Jets as they are looking at tanking in 2017 in hopes of rebuilding in next years draft. At age 30 and coming off shoulder surgery, the Titans are giving him a tryout year by signing him to a one-year contract before they talk long-term extension. The full details of the contract has not been released but with it being a one-year contract it is likely not an outrageous cost for Tennessee.
I am giving this deal a B- because we all know what Eric Decker is capable of doing when he is healthy but the shoulder injury and if he is truly 100% has yet to be seen.
Final Grade: B-
