article imageNFL Rumors: Eric Decker to New Orleans Saints?

By Larry Seely     Feb 9, 2014 in Sports
New Orleans - For the second time in the last three years, New Orleans failed to reach the NFC Championship, despite having one of the top offenses in the NFL, but that doesn't mean the front office will look to just upgrade the defense this off-season.
With Drew Brees leading the way, this team will rely on the passing game and big plays in 2014, but with opposing defenses double teaming Jimmy Graham, finding another play maker on the outside is imperative.
Kenny Stills had a good year for the Saints, but the team lacked that big receiver that could help the offense in the red zone and that has led to several rumors since the 2013 season ended on possible free agent signings.
The latest rumors come from J.R. Ella of SB Nation and he reports that the team should go after Eric Decker. The 26 year-old had a terrific season with Denver this past season and despite his failure to make a big impact on the Super Bowl, fans and football experts can't ignore his nearly 1,300 yards in receiving and eleven touchdowns for the Broncos this past season.
The New Orleans Saints still have that window of opportunity to win another Super Bowl, but finding Brees some help and continuing to upgrade the defense this off-season will be key and signing a wide receiver like Decker could be the move that puts this franchise over the top in 2014.
