Summary

After a slightly down year in 2014, Eric Decker bounced back and topped 1,00 yards for the third time in his six year career. Having Brandon Marshall take over the role as lead wide receiver allowed Decker to fade back into the second spot - one which he is far more suited to than when he functioned as the lead in 2014. There is some concern about Ryan Fitzpatrick not being under center this year and the team having to settle for Geno Smith, but it's still the same offense which had Decker targeted in the red zone more than any other receiving option. While he will never put up top receiver points, Decker is consistent and should provide solid production again this year. (May 20)

Jets | Teammate expects Ryan Fitzpatrick back (Tue May 17, 09:55 PM) - Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is not close to a contract agreement with the New York Jets, but Jets WR Eric Decker said he expects Fitzpatrick to be the starting quarterback in the first regular season game.

Our View: Fitzpatrick is a seasoned veteran, so he doesn't need every offseason rep with the Jets as he already knows the Chan Gailey system like the back of his hand. The Jets drafted Christian Hackenberg (Penn State) in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft, but he's more of a developmental prospect who should sit for a year if possible. Geno Smith and Bryce Petty are the only other QBs on the roster. The Jets are at a stalemate right now with Fitzpatrick, but that could quickly change as we get closer to training camp.

Jets | Eric Decker talks Ryan Fitzpatrick (Tue May 17, 07:58 PM) - New York Jets WR Eric Decker said the Jets need to be prepared to play without free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets). Decker does want New York to re-sign the veteran quarterback, but he's focused on the football team as a whole. 'All I can say is we have to move on without him right now because they are stuck where they are with the business decision,' Decker said. 'But, again, we have a job to do and that's to be the best football team, field the best football team, of who we have in the locker room right now.'

Our View: The Jets WRs liked catching passes from Fitzpatrick because he has no fear throwing into coverage. The two sides are at an impasse right now, but that might change quickly as training camp draws near.
