According, to WCNC-TV's Vic Lombardi, the Indianapolis Colts have interest in pursuing Decker. The interest appears mutual, according to Lombardi.

 

It's one more player to blame for Luck's inability to complete 60% of his passes or when he commit 7 INTs in 2 playoffs games. I'm sure there will be plenty more of those.

 

And of course

 

From Decker's perspective, he'd be trading a living legend for arguably the best young passer in the NFL -- exactly what the Colts did two years ago.

For a guy that brought his completion percentage to barely 60% in mostly non-competitive garbage time, that's an interesting statement. It wouldn't be a Colts related article if this wasn't mentioned. Part of the contract, I guess.

 

Hopefully Decker gets 15mil.

this is going to be a good thread

 

there will probably be several andrew luck vs. cam arguments that go in a few different directions

 

aceboogie will probably post about how we're going 0-16 unless we bring in nicks, decker, and spend all of our draft picks on wide receivers

 

someone might bring up obama or gay people

I'm not interested in him at all, FA WR signings rarely work out. He would tie up money we currently don't have. Also LOL to Eagles inking Cooper to a five year deal. In Nicks' down year (this year) he still had a better year than Cooper (his best year by far) in terms of catches and yards

I don't believe that Decker is a true WR1, but I do believe that he is a very adept WR2.  He was an integral part of their offense, not a garbage time fantasy football star. He was not their third or fourth option. He was their second option, and the numbers reflect that.  That being said, he may still get grossly overpaid, and no way I would touch him with a 10 foot pole.

Andrew Luck should file a restraining order against you. Your obsession with the man has grown into full blown addiction.

Whatever you views of Luck are...At least the organization has a focused commitment to make every effort to improve the weapons around him and ensure his success.

Yeah they should be trying to run Reggie Wayne out of town since he's making too much money.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
