Eric Decker was born in Cold Spring, Minnesota on March 15, 1987. Eric was a student at Rocori High School in 2003 and was present during the Rocori High School shooting, hiding in a cupboard until police arrived. Throughout high school, Decker excelled at football, basketball, and baseball. Eric attended the University of Minnesota and participated in baseball and football. In his junior, sophomore, and senior seasons of football, Decker was a standout. Eric was named the third-best wide receiver in college football during his senior year, 2009, by a “Sports Illustrated” columnist.
Decker was selected 87th overall by the Denver Broncos in the 2010 NFL Draft. Eric inked a four-year, $2.5 million deal. Due to the Broncos’ depth at wide receiver, Decker saw limited action during his rookie season, though he did appear on special teams. He started all 16 regular-season games in his second season.
Eric appeared poised for a breakout season in 2012, his third season, when the Denver Broncos added veteran quarterback Peyton Manning to their roster. Decker did indeed have a strong season, finishing with 85 receptions for 1,064 yards and 13 touchdowns. Decker had a career-high 174 receiving yards and tied a team high with four receiving touchdowns in Week 13 against the Kansas City Chiefs. In 2012, he was second in the league in touchdown receptions.
Eric Decker had another outstanding season in 2013, helping Peyton Manning to a record-setting passing season. Eric had several standout games and finished with 87 receptions for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns, both career highs. The Denver Broncos advanced to Super Bowl XLVIII, where they faced the Seattle Seahawks. The Broncos were heavily favored to win the game, but were stunned by a massive 43-8 defeat. Eric had a single six-yard reception in the super bowl.
Decker signed a five-year, $36.25 million contract with the New York Jets on March 12, 2014, but appeared in just three of those seasons before being released. Following that, he spent one season with both the Tennessee Titans and the New England Patriots before retiring in 2018.
Eric Decker married country singer Jessie James on June 22, 2013. They have three children together: Vivianne, a daughter, and Eric and Forrest, sons. From 2013 to 2017, the reality television series “Eric and Jess: Game on” aired three seasons, chronicling the Decker family’s life.
Eric and his wife condemned NFL players who kneeled during the national anthem in 2017 to bring attention to racial inequality and police brutality.
Eric Decker listed his family home in Georgia for $1.45 million in 2017. Eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and two half-bathrooms are included in the extravagant residence. The house was constructed in 2006 and measures 10,000 square feet, including a wine cellar, two kitchens, and a bathroom with a boat-shaped tub. The family then purchased and relocated to a $4.25 million six-bedroom, eleven-bathroom home in Nashville. As of 2020, the Decker family will remain together in their Nashville home.
