Was told that the Vikings have made an official offer to WR Eric Decker. No details on if the offer is even competitive or more of a "if you would like to come home" type of deal. Decker could play opposite of Patterson with Jennings manning the slot on a full time basis.

I agree. My guess is they made an offer in good faith if for some reason he was desperate to come home.

I call BS.

 

Someone is trying to get his name in the news, or drive up a price.

Flip side is maybe they don't think they have a chance at other positions of need and/or they don't like the dollars and value of those players.  Norv has talked about spreading the field for AP.  Think if they could put Patterson, Jennings, Decker and even Wright out wide?  Would give this offense a dynamic we haven't seen in a long time.

Ha the gopher fan in me is SUPER excited about this. Dont care about $ dont care about spending it elsewhere, i'm a complete rube when it comes to Gopher players, and Decker was one of my favorites. Please please please bring him home.

 

P.S.

I understand we probably wont get him, and that we can spend elsewhere.

Wow, I find that one hard to believe. What's more, I'm not sure I like it very much. Decker goes from Manning to Cassel just to play in his home state? In a 2nd or 3rd receiver role, when he can probably find #1 receiver options? And then you consider how many holes we still have on defense AND the deepest WR draft class in a generation? I doubt anything comes of this, but if it does, this is money not well spent IMO.

Interesting. I agree, probably a 'Hey buddy! Remember us in Minnesota, your home state? If you're up for a discount double check, pop on in! Hugs, Rick'.

 

Worth a shot….but probably not much more than that.

Really? Decker is super overrated and manning made him.

Can we offer munnerlyn a contract instead of decker?

The reason I would like Decker is because he is more of a complimentary receiver and he actually really fits in well here and can take over Jennings spot in a year or so. I think he is a perfect fit and wont have to be the #1 here.

You're just full of big opinions. Claim Decker is super overrated because of manning. Big claim.

Cmon man. He had manning throwing him the ball. Welker, D. Thomas, and J. Thomas were part of that receiving core. Those guys took a lot of pressure off.

Decker had a nice year the year before Manning. He was gradually worked in his first couple years.

We would have AP jennings and CP84. Not quite as prolific but could be pretty deadly. Our biggest question mark is QB. But decker helps create matchup nightmares if he is here.
