News Blitz 6/21: WR Eric Decker wants to be a Patriot

Today’s News Blitz has a veteran free agent pass-catcher making his pitch to play in New England.


Even though most of the NFL world has shut down for summer vacation with players and coaches alike dispersing to their chosen relaxation spots, not everyone is enjoying the calm before the training camp storm.

At this late point in the offseason, with teams' 90-man rosters stocked up, there remains a group of unsigned veteran free agents still looking for work. One of those guys, receiver Eric Decker, would apparently like to find a home in Foxborough.

The Boston Globe notes that Decker, who played last season in Tennessee and caught 54 passes in 16 games, made a pitch to continue to his career with the Patriots.

"At this point in my career, I want to go somewhere where I can compete for a Super Bowl and be in a good system and be with a quarterback that my skill set would be an addition to the team," he said in an interview on Sirius XM NFL Radio. lists the 11 best players in the history of each AFC East team, including the Brady-led Patriots roster. looks at Devin and Jason McCourty, as well as Matthew Slater, hosting a political forum this week in Massachusetts.
