Colts reportedly interested in Eric Decker

Eric DeckerEric Decker is set to make big money in free agency this offseason, and the Indianapolis Colts are said to be one of the teams interested in signing him.

CBS Denver reporter and Denver radio host Vic Lombardi reports that the Colts are one of the teams interested in Decker. He also says Decker would love to play with Andrew Luck if the Broncos don’t bring him back.

Decker will be 27 next season and is coming off his finest year as a pro. He caught 87 passes for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns playing with Peyton Manning. Though Decker received a boost playing with the MVP QB the past two seasons, he was even productive and managed to find the end zone consistently when teaming with Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow, so you know the guy can play.

Decker will be paid like a No. 1 receiver by some team and the Broncos will likely let him walk. Denver has multiple talented receivers and probably don’t think paying Decker top dollar is a good use of their limited funds.

Decker also said during the offseason that he will do what’s best for his family, which seems like an indication that he will go to whomever pays him the most. If that turns out to be the Colts, they’ll be even more of a dangerous team. They already have a good quarterback and offense but were lacking a second receiving threat, especially after Reggie Wayne got hurt.

Eric Decker got good luck butt squeeze on wife Jessie James

Eric Decker wife Jessie James butt

Eric Decker is going into the Super Bowl with an advantage over everyone: he has good karma from his wife, Jessie James.

Jessie James Decker posted the above picture on her Instagram account Saturday, the day before the Super Bowl, of her husband Eric grabbing her butt as part of a massive hug at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands. We love her clothes, too.

She’s wearing a great sweatshirt that says “Mrs Decker” on the back, and she has some Denver Broncos-colored socks on under her boots.

Jessie James Mrs Decker

Jessie James is a singer and has her own career in music, in addition to being the wife of the Broncos’ receiver. The two were married last year and have a reality TV show on E! where their goal is to show that reality TV couples can actually work and be drama-free. But they are about to have some drama this offseason — Jessie is pregnant with the couple’s first child, and Eric is likely to end up with a different team because he’ll be a free agent.

As long as Decker gets to take wife Jessie with him wherever he goes, we have a feeling that he’ll be pretty happy. I mean who wouldn’t love a wife who’s cool with her hubby grabbing a handful of the butt and then posting that pic online?

Eric Decker may leave Broncos as free agent

Eric DeckerRemember how we said that the Denver Broncos offense may have a drastically different look next season? We already told you that Peyton Manning could retire and that Knowshon Moreno likely won’t be back because he’ll be a free agent. Well you can add Eric Decker to the list as well.

Decker is in the final year of his contract and will be a free agent after the season. He has scored 33 touchdowns in the past three seasons and had 87 catches for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. Those are impressive numbers and the kind of stats that will result in him commanding a big contract in the offseason. But will the Broncos be able to match what another team offers him?

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the Broncos, who have a glutton of receivers with Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and tight end Julius Thomas, view Decker as a No. 2 receiver. That means they probably won’t be able to match the type of offer he’ll receive elsewhere.

Based on what he’s done the past three seasons, don’t you think another team will pay him like a No. 1 receiver? Some teams are desperate for playmakers on offense and one squad will no doubt give him big money. I wouldn’t be thrilled about overpaying Decker the way you know someone will, but he is a good playmaker and proved that even without Manning, he can still find the end zone. If he can score 8 touchdowns with Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow as his quarterbacks, you know he can get it done with anyone back there.

Eric Decker and pregnant wife Jessie do GQ photoshoot

Eric Decker wife pregnant

Eric Decker have almost replaced Tom Brady and Gisele as the most photographed — and photogenic — couple in the NFL. The Denver Broncos wide receiver and his country singer wife were featured in the “Love, Sex & Madness” February issue of GQ, even though Jessie is pregnant with the couple’s first child.

The photoshoot seems to be mostly an advertisement for denim jeans as each slide on the GQ site advertises the clothes they’re wearing in each photo, but there are a few quotes from the couple. For instance, there’s this about their reality show on E! called “Eric & Jessie: Game On.”

“Before we agreed, it was really important for us to clarify: If you’re looking for drama or couples fighting, you’re signing on with the wrong people,” James told GQ.

Jessie has articulated that stance before. In fact, she said she wanted to prove that reality TV show couples can work and get along, and that’s why they were doing the show.

Anyway, you have to be a pretty special couple to be photographed when you’re expecting a baby, and that they definitely are.

Eric Decker is a model like his wife Jessie James

Eric Decker Five Four

Eric Decker is living the life many people dream of. The guy is a stud football player, married to a woman who is a singer and model, and he is also a model himself.

Decker paired with Five Four Club, which is a clothing company that delivers clothes to clients on a monthly basis if you sign up. I recently learned that he was working with them through his Twitter feed and after seeing one of their commercials.

Decker, who had 87 catches for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns this season, was listed by People Magazine as one of the sexiest men alive in 2013. It probably helped that his profile was raised by his reality TV show with his wife “Eric & Jessie: Game On” on E!, which has covered their day-to-day living.

The two got married in June and are expecting their first child — a daughter — within the next two months. Jessie recently shared a photo on Instagram of how she looks being pregnant at 7 months:

Julius Thomas nearly lost Peyton Manning’s record-breaking touchdown ball

Peyton-Manning-Julius-ThomasPeyton Manning set an NFL record for touchdown passes in a single season on Sunday with a beautiful 25-yard strike to tight end Julius Thomas, who deserves credit for making a nice over-the-shoulder grab. However, Thomas almost blew one of his most important assignments after scoring.

When Thomas got back to his feet after securing the touchdown, he dropped the ball on the ground and went to celebrate. Fortunately for the third-year player out of Portland State, teammate Eric Decker was quick to scoop it up. Decker stuffed the ball under his jersey and headed toward the sideline to give it to Manning.

“I dropped the ball so fast to do my usual thing and Deck picked the ball up so fast,” Thomas said, via Anwar S. Richardson of Yahoo! Sports. “I was like, ‘Why did Deck picked the ball up so fast?’ I’m not paying any attention and I came back to the sidelines and I’m sitting down on the bench and somebody said, ‘That was the one!’ Maybe I shouldn’t have dropped it so carelessly, I should’ve kept it.”

Crisis averted. Manning, who said he didn’t see Decker scoop the ball up and hide it under his jersey, joked that he was glad Thomas was unaware of the situation.

“Julius, it wouldn’t have surprised me if he had handed it to some babe up in the stands and tried to get her phone number in exchange for the ball,” Manning said. “That’d be right up Julius’ alley. That’s pretty in line with his thinking often times. Great catch, great route by him and, like I said, Decker’s catch was awesome, that’s probably one of the best ones of the year in my opinion.”

The fact that he used the word “babe” is so Peyton Manning it hurts. Kudos to Decker for paying attention. Thomas almost learned a valuable lesson the hard way.
