The Tennessee Titans are doing everything they can to surround Marcus Mariota with talent this offseason, adding a number of weapons on offense. They continued that trend on Sunday night by signing former Jets wide receiver Eric Decker to a one-year deal.

Decker was released by the Jets as part of their youth movement, making him a free agent. His lone visit was with the Titans, as he spent time with Mike Mularkey last week at the team’s practice.

He missed just about all of the 2016 season due to hip and shoulder injuries, which he underwent surgery to repair in October. He was limited to just nine catches for 194 yards and two touchdowns last season in three games.

The Titans are gearing up for a run at the playoffs this season after putting together arguably the best offseason of any team in the league. With key additions on both sides of the ball, they very well could be the team to beat in the AFC South.
