With the New York Jets doing an overhaul, veteran wide receiver Eric Decker could be the next player to go. Decker, 29, missed a majority of last season with injuries to his hip and shoulder.
According to sources, the Jets will try to trade Decker leading up to April’s NFL Draft in Philadelphia. If they do not find any takers, they could release him, which would save the team $5.75 million against the cap.
Decker would be the latest wide receiver to move on, as Brandon Marshall was released on Thursday night. He requested his own release in order to sign with a team, who has a chance to make the playoffs — which he has never made the playoffs in his career.
There is already speculation that Decker will not be ready for Week 1 following surgeries on his hip and shoulder.
During the 2016 season, he only played in three games, a career-low. He had nine receptions for a 194 yards and two touchdowns.
In Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills, he had six receptions for a 126 yards. In Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals, he had two receptions for 37 yards.
Decker had a reception for 31 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3, then did not play again the rest of the season.
