Jets signed WR Eric Decker, formerly of the Broncos.

Decker, 27, set career highs in catches (87) and receiving yards (1,288 yards) with Denver last season, scoring 11 touchdowns. He caught a lot of heat during the free-agent period after experiencing a colder-than-expected market, but is a much-needed addition to the Jets' otherwise barren receiver corps. Decker is a physical, largely sure-handed wideout who moves the chains and can beat defensive backs deep. Unfortunately, he's downgrading quarterbacks in spectacular fashion going from Peyton Manning to Geno Smith, and will be the focus of defensive attention in New York after serving as Manning's No. 3 or 4 option. He'd do well to get back near 1,000 yards with the Jets. Decker will be a borderline WR3 in fantasy this season.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini reports the Jets are "making a push" to sign free agent Eric Decker during his Wednesday visit.

The Jets may feel some urgency to make a splash after the division-rival Patriots scooped up Darrelle Revis. Decker is currently in New Jersey having dinner with Jets executives. Decker has not generated the free-agent market most anticipated, but we still expect him to sign for something in the $7-8 million per-year range. Anything less would be a coup by second-year GM John Idzik.

Free agent Eric Decker is visiting the Jets Wednesday.

Decker made the flight from Denver to New Jersey on Tuesday night. The top wideout available is meeting with the team that has the biggest need, as the Jets currently feature Jeremy Kerley, David Nelson and Stephen Hill as their top-three receivers. Decker's stats have been inflated by Peyton Manning over the last two years and he may not be a "true" No. 1 wideout, but he'd be a massive upgrade for Geno Smith.

NFL Network suggests the Colts, Browns, Texans and Lions as possible landing spots for free agent Eric Decker.

It's been eerily quiet on the Decker front through three hours of free agency as teams have prioritized help on the offensive and defensive lines. It doesn't mean Decker won't get paid. He remains the No. 1 wideout available, and all four of these teams are desperate for No. 2 options. Decker's market will heat up.

The Denver Post expects free agent Eric Decker to command $8-$9 million annually.

It's a realistic number. The Post cites the annual average salaries of Dwayne Bowe ($11.2M), Greg Jennings ($9M) and Mike Williams ($7.2M), and the NFL's salary cap is increasing by $10 million. So even if Decker's 172/2352/24 line over the last two seasons has been inflated by Peyton Manning, he's still going to get paid. The Broncos are not expected to pony up the cash as they look to 2015, when Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas need to get locked up.

Broncos GM John Elway confirmed at the Combine he expects free agents Eric Decker and Knowshon Moreno to test the open market.

"I think they have to hit the market, especially when you look at where we are and what we have coming up," Elway said. Decker is expected to command at least $8 million per season and the Broncos don't have the cap space to afford him with Julius Thomas, Demaryius Thomas, and Wes Welker all up for free agency after the 2014 season. Denver is also expected to let free agent LB Wesley Woodyard test the open market.
