Report: Patriots expected to sign veteran WR Eric Decker

FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (WHDH) - The New England Patriots are reportedly expected to sign veteran wide receiver Eric Decker.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter says sources have told him that the team plans to sign Decker to a one-year deal.

The news comes just a couple of days after the 31-year-old reportedly worked out in Foxborough.

Decker has spent time with the Tennessee Titans, New York Jets and Denver Broncos over the course of his eight-year career.

He has 439 career catches, more than 5,800 yards receiving and 53 touchdowns.

New England was left with a need at the receiver position after the team announced the release of Jordan Matthews on Wednesday.
