Jets sign Eric Decker to a five-year deal

Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

Jets are giving former Broncos WR Eric Decker a 5-year, $36.25 M deal, including $15 M guaranteed, per source.

Fantasy Impact: 

Decker was expected to command as much as $9 million per season, so this seems like a reasonable deal. Decker is a solid receiver, but it remains to be seen if he can produce when drawing the attention of the defense's top corner. The Jets don't have a Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker or a Julius Thomas to occupy the defense. He's also seeing a downgrade at quarterback from Peyton Manning to Geno Smith, which is like going from Chipotle to a Taco Bell Dumpster. Still, he'll have decent value as a real-world WR1. It's doubtful that the Jets will be able to do any better this offseason.
