NFL: New York Jets-OTA Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Titans have signed free agent wide receiver Eric Decker, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The 30-year-old wide receiver earned interest from several different teams, but settled on the AFC South.

The Titans now field the best offense in the AFC South and a not-great-but-good-enough defense. Here’s their depth chart:

QB: Marcus Mariota

RB: DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry

WR: Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews, and Eric Decker

TE: Delanie Walker

OL: Not bad, and in fact actually good.

Dang it.

Decker came to the Jets in 2014 and caught 154 passes for 1,989 yards and 17 touchdowns in two seasons. A pair of injuries cost him most of the 2016 campaign, but he still managed two scores in just nine catches and three games played.

Cutting Decker was a surprising move for the Jets. He was only 30 so his best football isn’t necessarily behind him. With Decker gone, the Jets don’t have a single receiver on the roster with a 1,000 yard season under his belt.
