Eric Decker, WR

Age: 26

Reason to Avoid:

What a difference Peyton Manning makes! Eric Decker could cash in this offseason, but if Reggie is smart it should not be in Oakland.

Since Manning showed up in Denver, Decker has doubled his catches and yards, while also increasing touchdown catches in the past two seasons. Decker is a big target who runs smooth routes, and can get tough yards after the catch.

While Decker possesses qualities you look for in a receiver, the question is value when talking price tag.

Decker will probably be overpaid this offseason by a team desperate for a receiver. But Decker is not a #1 wide-out in this league, and is purely a complementary player.

Dont be fooled by the hype and big numbers, Decker is a product of a great quarterback.

Bottom Line….Why spend #1 Wide Receiver dollars on a #2? Save the money, draft a receiver early, and keep developing young WR’s on the roster.

    Agree. I get tired of players mentioned by Raiders fans that will not make the team better.
