By now we all know Eric Decker has retired from football. I doubt he had too many super-fans that are hurting right now, the guy was a pretty good receiver, had a few successful fantasy seasons, but nothing to write home about. 

It’s his wife that’s really hurting the most. Decker’s wife, country singer and reality star Jessie James Decker wrote an emotional Instagram post:

Yesterday was an emotional day. My amazing hubby decided to retire from playing football and I couldn’t be more proud of him and his decision. I cried, smiled and ultimately respected his choice to finish this chapter to start another. This pic was from the first football season I ever shared with him his second year for the broncos. I loved every minute cheering him on in the stands, meeting amazing friends along the way, bringing our new babies and toddlers to the games as they chanted “daddy football daddy football” in the car on the way the stadium each Sunday. From training camps lugging the babies in the wagons and seeing them run to you on the practice field to get that 30 minutes a day to see daddy. I have loved every moment of the last seven years watching my husband kick some serious ass! It’s a career he should be proud of. Can’t wait to share the next adventure with you babe and the amazing things you will do in the future! I love you so much my lover!!! Ps you said you were going to drive that beat up old Chevy Tahoe u got in college and ride it through the ground until you finished playing football, can we please get a new one now? Lol #footballisfamily

Decker will be just fine, I’m sure he and his wife can continue filming their reality show that I’ve never watched. The guy is no Jay Cutler
