FOXBORO -- After all the issues at receiver so far this summer with injuries, the Patriots have made a move.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the team is expected to sign Eric Decker to a one-year deal. Decker, 30, has played eight years in the league spending time with the Broncos, Jets and Titans. Last year with the Titans wasn't his best season as he had just 54 catches for 563 yards and a touchdown.

His best season came in 2013 when he caught 87 passes for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns with the Broncos.

After Jordan Matthews was released Wednesday, the team needed to add another body. Decker joins Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, Cordarrelle Patterson, Kenny Britt, Malcolm Mitchell, Riley McCarron, Braxton Berrios, Devin Lucien and Paul Turner as players competing for roster spots.
