NGT: Eric Decker Cut by Jets

Anando : 6/6/2017 6:06 pm
As per Twitter.

At this point, the Jets might just be better off releasing a list

The Jets have to have the worst roster in the entire league right now. I honestly can't think of a team with less talent. Even Cleveland has compiled some guys to be excited about.

The 49ers might even be better.

This is the year to get a top three pick.

The Jets are planning to trade or release Decker this week, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Decker, 30, underwent hip and shoulder surgery last fall, but he's healthy and has been practicing.

True, but his wife has Tweeted that it's pretty much a done deal:

Thanks Jets for being so welcoming to us over the past few years! We will miss you guys!!! We had some great memories and loved the fans❤❤❤
They are tanking for Darnold........

Talk about a risky move. No guarantees doing this shit.

But considering the possibility of a trade especially since his remaining contract is reasonable makes the headline premature

"we finished in last with you, we can finish in last without you."

I'm wondering if the Jets vs Bills Thursday Night game in November will beat the record of the Jets vs. Colts Monday Nighter for lowest turnout and tickets for less than $1 on Stubhub.

"suck for Luck" type off season ... this roster is barren outside of some defensive front 7 talent.

makes sense, get 1 of these "franchise" QBs next year and build accordingly.

Well not if you are stuck with worthless PSLs and season tickets.

Not a bad idea at all
Tanking for a shot at a top QB is nothing to be ashamed of.

Tanking this season is a good move by the Jets. Even if they miss on Darnold, they might still get Josh Allen. Next year is the time to get your franchise QB.

Decker has given the Jets little bang for the buck  
Bob in Newburgh : 6/7/2017 6:22 am : link
In his 3 seasons, he missed or was limited in about half of the games.

Jets have some interesting young talent at WR. This is not a clear cut tanking the season personnel move.

Yes, it is. They don't need the cap space and it's not like they've got 4 WRs who can perform near Decker's level. This is just about expectations for the season and recouping something from what they've already determined is going to be a lost cause.
Smart move for the Jets  
Jay on the Island : 6/7/2017 9:03 am : link
They will have the first or second pick next year and they will finally get their star franchise QB either Allen or Darnold.
He'll be an All-Pro with the Patriots this year

At the WR position it is not clear cut  
Bob in Newburgh : 6/7/2017 9:18 am : link
Premise of the response to my post is that if you have cap space you are obligated to piss it away.

Jets drafted Chad Hansen, which meant that Decker was likely history. It is not like Decker was highly productive week in/week out.

Say what? Decker had a TD catch in 14 of the 18 games he played for the Jets in 15/16. In the 4 games he didn't have a TD he went 6/94, 4/81, 8/101, and 1/31 (in the game he got hurt). Decker was highly productive week in/week out for the Jets.
When you are on IR, or not active

How are you highly productive for your team week in/week out?

Terrible productivity for the Jets in 2014 and 2016.

Interesting deflection, but you could just as easily have said you didn't realize he was that productive once the Jets had a reasonable option at QB.

Those dont look real
I'd totally take Decker  
Sonic Youth : 6/7/2017 4:41 pm : link
Giants cannot afford him though, most likely.
It would have to be a one year contract at bare minimum  
River : 6/7/2017 4:50 pm : link
Coming over for a shot at a Ring much like Marshall. Maybe Marshall can recruit him. Imagine having Decker at 4 Wr instead of King.

I think Jets fans would simultaneously kill themselves if we won the Super Bowl with Snacks, Marshall, Decker, and Harris.

lol We can only dream :) If the Giants want Decker they will get him but JT Thomas would have to go in the process.
An with OBJ Marshall Shepard Engram Vereen how many balls would he get?
We should trade for him
