Receiver Eric Decker, whose recently visit to the Titans was downplayed by the team as routine and similar to pre-draft due diligence, has a deal in place. Per multiple reports, the Titans have inked Decker to a one-year contract.

The buzz surrounding Decker was that the Vikings’ interest was tepid at best and, despite the outside impression that making a run at him simply because he is from Minnesota, didn’t necessarily mean that there was any interest on Decker’s side to come to a team where he would be competing for playing time.

Some Vikings fans will likely be upset that Decker didn’t end up back in Minnesota, but the reality of the situation was that, whether the Floyd incident happened or not, Minnesota more than likely – and sources within the family confirmed such – wasn’t a landing spot of interest for Decker or a player the Vikings were going to go out of their way to pay big to bring in.

Via Tom Pelissero of USA Today, Decker received a signing bonus of $2.5 million and a base salary of $1.35 million. That’s a base deal of $3.85 million. Decker also can earn up to $1.5 million in incentives. The structure makes the base value deal essentially guaranteed. With $2.5 million already paid to Decker, the Titans will be more likely to keep him for the full year at $1.35 million. (Without the signing bonus, the Titans could have decided at the end of the preseason to save the $3.85 million and to give the roster spot to someone else.)

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/06/21/eric-decker-gets-3-85-million-for-one-year-plus-possible-incentives/



Per a source with knowledge of the terms, the base value actually is $4 million, given that Decker can earn $150,000 in per-game roster bonuses. Typically, those bonuses (while tied to the player being available for 16 games) are regarded as part of the base value of the deal. As to the incentives, Decker will receive $250,000 if he scores four touchdowns. He also will get $125,000 for every 10 receptions starting at 30, maxing out at $625,000 if he catches 70 passes. Ditto for yards, with $125,000 for 450, 550, 650, 750, and 850 — another max of $625,000.

Thus, if Decker catches 70 passes, gains 850 yards, and scores four touchdowns, he’ll get the full incentive package of $1.5 million, pushing his total payout to $5.5 million.
