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:

Mike Montgomery will make his scheduled start on Sunday.
Montgomery, the Mariners young left-hander, is riding back-to-back complete game shutouts, one of which was a one-hitter. It's tough to be hotter than Montgomery is right now, considering his perfect ERA (0.00), strikeout total (17), and hits allowed (6) over the last two starts, so lets sit back on Sunday and see if he can finally complete the no-hitter against the Oakland A's.

Diamondbacks announce Patrick Corbin will start on Saturday.
Corbin has been saying to the media for the past couple of weeks that he's "feeling ready to go" and that he is confident that his stuff is "just as good as it was before". If we choose to believe him, Corbin will be a solid start on Saturday, but coming off a long rehabbed surgery, it might be better to wait on Corbin until he shows a body of work in his post surgery career.
