Update: Jets are giving former Broncos WR Eric Decker a 5-year, $36.25M deal, including $15M guaranteed, per source.
The Jets get their #1 target just before the end of day two, as the soon-to-be 27 year old wide-out signs with gang-green. Decker, coming off a monster season, will need to prove that he can produce while being Geno Smith's - Vick or Schaub? - number one target. His $36.25M deal shows he certainly wasn't paid like one as evidence of Mike Wallace's $60M ($30M guranteed) contract over five years signed just last March. The Jets can still sign other top FA receivers or draft one in May. GM John Idzik left himself plenty of options. ANALYST:
To bad they do not have a quarterback that can throw him the ball. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Lions cut defensive end Phillip Hunt.
Hunt has served as a back-up linebacker and defensive lineman and appeared in two games, recording seven tackles (one solo) and one sack. The Lions apparently have other roster needs and Hunt is the casualty here. He'll seek employment elsewhere now or could end up on the Lions practice squad. Analysis: Howard Bender
Orioles pitching prospect Branden Kline had Tommy John surgery on his elbow.
The 24-year old, undrafted right-hander first began to feel discomfort in his elbow back in May while pitching for Double-A Bowie. The team wanted to try and avoid surgery so he received a platelet-rich plasma injection to help with the inflammation and, hopefully, the soreness and from there, just rest and rehab. Those efforts have finally been deemed a failure and Kline will finally have the surgery. He is expected to now miss the entire 2016 season. Analysis: Howard Bender
Marqise Lee (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 5.
Lee failed to practice all week again, so the Jags will at least try to work him back in next week. Until he can start putting in the practice time necessary, you can avoid him. Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns remain the top two options for Blake Bortles so even when Lee does finally return, it's difficult to see him poaching too many targets. Analysis: Howard Bender
