I just heard on ESPN that the Ravens are wanting to bring Eric Decker on board. Can anyone confirm this rumor?

Are you sure you heard that or are you just making that up?  No reports/rumors/talks anywhere, even on Twitter.

Nope not a single thing about that.   

Hope we don't pursue him either.   He is incredibly overrated.

Wow I'm thinking the opposite. He would fit well with Kubiaks offensive scheme of a big target and possession type receiver.

We're interested in every single big name FA out there at the vet minimum.  It's the season of speculation.  That's not a rumor.

There is an article on ESPN that says Decker is overrated and will be over paid in the offseason... But no mention of us.

A much better FA would be Jason Avant. He was cut by Philly, so he wouldn't affect our comp picks next year. Thrives on 3rd down as a reliable possession receiver with good hands. Would be a great value, one right up Ozzies alley.

Avant makes a lot of sense, I could see Ozzie doing that.

Jason Avant is not better than Decker.   That being said, both players are in a completely different ballgame.   Decker is young and ripe for a fat check in FA.  Avant is in his 30's and mired w/ injuries.   Both had some series of success, but neither are really the answer to our passing woes.

I don't think Decker is the answer either but what about Marquise Lee at number 17-that guy is a beast!

First of all I never said Avant is better then Decker. I said he would be a better value. If Decker is set on 8 or 9 mil a year, there is no way he is worth bringing in.

Second, I don't know why people think 1 player is going to come in and solve all of our problems on offense. The point is to upgrade the players you have. Avant is an upgrade over Tandon Doss and Deonte Thompson and would fit a certain role in our passing game.

Only Allen Iverson is The Answer. Decker's a good #2. Beats press coverage with his size/strength better than any WR we have right now, but we need to pay Torrey next year. Better off going t/ the draft.

Considering he wants something along the lines of a $65M contract...aint gonna happen.

 

Our best bet at snagging a bigname freeagent WR is Hakeem Nicks.

He has talent but if he was smart he'd avoid our team, his stat line would read like 28 receptions and one touchdown.

In this WR class, there are not too many FAs who I would go for. Maybe Avant but that is about it. Why not spend the money in other positions not as deep in the draft and then take advantage of the deep draft for the positions that are still needs?

He is an amazing weapon and he returns kicks-that guy is the truth!

Everyone should calm down on the hate of Eric Decker until he proves it's all about the system under Manning. Decker has had two consecutive 1,000+ yard seasons with a combined 24 touchdowns in the last two years. As a number 2 next to Torrey Smith he could draw some attention make Torrey better or when Torrey's under attention, he could be even better. He is going to command a lot of money, which the Ravens will likely never consider paying, but if we could get him I would love to get him. Same with Hakeem Nicks.

He does? Really? That's not what I saw in the Super Bowl

 

In all honesty, he doesn't beat press man and is quite soft. It's why the Broncos use lots of pick routes to keep cornerbacks off their receivers.

I like how you say we should stop until he proves he's not a product of Manning, but use his best two year stretch under Manning as a reason why he could be good.
