Eric Decker has exactly what the Detroit Lions need on their depth chart.
The Detroit Lions have officially started their minicamps. It has been an impressive two months between the draft, OTAs and now minicamp. The Lions defense is showing a ton of improvements and the offense is looking healthy.Brandon Marshall Jersey What would be one thing that the Lions could add that would make them a true Super Bowl contender? Adding Eric Decker to the scheme.
After the New York Jets publicly announced they would release Decker if no trade options were available, the Jets officially parted ways with their star receiver on Monday. Decker’s trade value decreased after a season ending shoulder and hip surgery, and now he is on the market for a new home.
Picture Marvin Jones on one sideline and Decker on another. Not to mention Golden Tate in the slot and Eric Ebron in the mix. That depth chart sounds too exciting to not entertain. It would also mean that rookie Kenny Golladay would have three top NFL receivers to learn and grow with.Nick Mangold Jersey
Decker will add a ton of versatility to the team. He excels in the slot and outside, which would take some pressure off both Jones and Tate. Decker is combative downfield as he releases himself from coverage and re-routes. This is something Jones lacks.Leonard Williams Jersey
Although nobody wants to think about a Jones or Tate injury, it’s also a possibility. Do the Lions have an option if one of their star receivers goes down? No. Sure,Darrelle Revis Jersey Golladay looked good during OTAs, but that doesn’t mean he is NFL ready, especially to start.
