Eric Decker, who just signed with the Patriots during the off-season, has decided it’s time to call it a career.  According to reports, the 31 year old was likely going to be cut, despite the need at the position by the New England.

Decker released a statement on Instagram that says, in part, that he knows now it is time to hang his helmet up.

Decker played 8 seasons in the NFL with the Broncos, Jets and Titans.  Let’s not feel too bad for him, he is going to be able to spend more time with his lovely wife Jesse James Decker.
