Coaches and scouts – as well as those of you who are observing NFL Network’s TV coverage – are watching QBs, RBs and WRs go through their on-field workouts today at Lucas Oil Stadium.
But for Minnesota football fans it might feel as if something is missing – and it is. Golden Gopher’s WR Eric Decker is not working out because of a foot injury he sustained during the 2009 season.
Decker had one surgery already on the foot and he’ll undergo another one on March 15; he said he’ll be ready to hit the field for whichever team drafts him by June.
Speaking of the draft, how is the injury and his inability to workout for teams before the draft going to affect his standing with teams? That’s yet to be determined, but Decker seems comfortable with how things will play out.
“Unfortunately, I can’t run and compete with these guys,” Decker told Frank Tadych of NFL.com. “But my mindset is to go in there and sell my character, sell the smarts on the field and the consistency I’ve had over the last four seasons.”
I wasn’t able to catch up with Decker down in Indianapolis because his media session was right around the time Vikings VP of Player Personnel Rick Spielman was meeting with Twin Cities reporters. But NFL.com caught up with him and you can watch the interview by clicking here.
