Black DB Thinks Eric Decker Being White is Hurting Him in Free Agency
Frankly, the thought never crossed my mind that Decker being white would cause anyone to be concerned. Hakeem Nicks is black and no one is breaking their back to try to sign him either.
I think there are a lot of receivers out there and teams have more pressing concerns, plus there are a lot of good wide receivers in the draft and teams might want to address their needs that way.
I honestly just think this is just a ignorant player. I don’t think teams are concerned with Decker’s skin color, but more so his ability to stand on his own without Demaryius Thomas on the other side.
Black defensive back who has gone against Decker tells me Decker isn't getting as much interest as he should because he's white.
