Patriots Work Out Eric Decker
Veteran wide receiver Eric Decker worked out for the Patriots on Monday, according to ESPN.
Decker told SiriusXM NFL Radio last June that he thinks he would be a "good fit" in New England.
"At this point in my career, I want to go somewhere where I can compete for a Super Bowl and be in a good system and be with a quarterback that my skill set would be an addition to the team," Decker said on SiriusXM.
Decker spent last season with the Tennessee Titans, catching 54 passes for 563 yards and one touchdown.
The 31-year-old veteran caught at least eleven touchdown passes in three out of four seasons from 2012 to 2015. He caught a career-high 13 touchdown passes in 2012, when he played for the Denver Broncos.
The Patriots are thin at the wide receiver position with Malcolm Mitchell, Kenny Britt and Jordan Matthews dealing with injuries. The Patriots will also be without wide receiver Julian Edelman due to his four-game PED suspension.
