Another day in the NFL preseason and we have another NFL retirement to discuss as Wide Receiver Eric Decker has announced that he is done playing professional career
A 2010 third round pick from the University of Minnesota, Decker became a starter in 2011 and would record his first of two straight solid seasons for Denver after. He would net 85 and 87 receptions in 2012 and 2013 respectively with 1,000 Yards in both seasons. He would help the Broncos reach Super Bowl XLVII (albeit in a losing effort).
Decker would sign with the New York Jets where he played three seasons and had another 1,000 Yard Season (2015). He finished his career in 2017 with the Tennessee Titans and he signed with the New England Patriots in this off season. He did play in this pre-season and prior to his retirement it was uncertain whether he would make the roster.
While Eric Decker was never a Pro Bowler he retires with a pretty good career of 439 Receptions, 5,816 Receiving Yards and 53 Touchdown Receptions. This may not be a Hall of Fame career (he is however eligible in 2023) but a damned good one.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to wish Eric Decker the best in his post-playing career.
