The Tennessee Titans have added another weapon for quarterback Marcus Mariota.
The up-and-coming AFC South contenders signed former New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker to a one-year contract Sunday, the team announced on Twitter.
Decker’s wife, country singer Jessie James Decker, confirmed the deal on Twitter.
Decker had an injury-riddled 2016 season in which he caught nine passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns in just three games.
The 30-year-old wideout has been productive when healthy, though, as he has tallied three 1,000-yard seasons in his career, including a huge 2015 campaign for the Jets. He was cut by New York on June 6, but it didn’t take him long to find a new home with a talented young signal-caller.
Decker joins receivers Rishard Matthews, Corey Davis, Tajae Sharpe and tight end Delanie Walker in the Titans’ receiving corps.
Tennessee finished last season at 9-7 and narrowly missed the playoffs. But with an improved offensive arsenal and a healthy Mariota, it has all the tools to make the postseason in 2017.
