My take on Jets Eric Decker decision . . . Dan Leberfeld

The Jets are going to trade or release wide receiver Eric Decker. The announcement was made by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Why did the Jets do this now?

They were probably waiting for Decker to finish rehabbing his shoulder and hip injuries, so they wouldn’t have to send him packing with an injury settlement.

Also, they believe they have enough talent in their receiver room to get by without Decker and his $6.5 million salary.

With guys like Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa, ArDarius Stewart, Chad Hansen, Charone Peake and Jalin Marshall (when he comes off suspension), they think they’ll be okay at the position.

Also, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is going to be a focal point of the Jets’ passing attack.

And let me thrown in a sleeper name – Myles White. Every few minutes in practice, I have to remind myself who #16 is, because he keeps making impressive catches. He’s looked really good.

Decker is a very good player, but at 30, coming off two major surgeries, his salary might be a little too pricey and risky.
