Top target: Jets agree to terms with former Broncos WR Eric Decker

The New York Jets have agreed to terms with former Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker, considered by many the top free agent at his position.Decker spent all day Wednesday at the Jets' facility and had dinner with a contingent of team officials, including coach Rex Ryan. He gives quarterback Geno Smith and the offense a sorely needed playmaker and No. 1-type wide receiver.The 6-foot-3, 214-pound Decker, who'll be 27 on Saturday, set career highs last season catching passes from Peyton Manning with 87 catches and 1,288 yards receiving to go along with 11 touchdowns. He had 85 receptions for 1,064 yards and a career-best 13 TDs in 2012.Getting a top receiver was a priority as the Jets headed into free agency.___Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL...
