Wide receiver Eric Decker and his pregnant wife, country singer Jessie James, are headed to New York. The free agent wide receiver signed a five-year deal with the Jets on Wednesday night worth $36.25 million with $15 million guaranteed.

The Eric & Jessie: Game On reality television stars will be on the move after spending Decker's first four years of his NFL career with the Denver Broncos. The couple is expecting their first daughter any day now, which could make the move difficult on the couple.

It also may effect the future of their reality show as it will now take place in a different location, but with Season 2 set to kick off on March 30, the couple seems happy to be coming to New York. Their daughter is expected to be born sometime this month as well, so it's a big step for the couple.

James took to her Twitter account to express happiness for coming to New York after the news broke Wednesday night.


Decker will switch over from catching passes from veteran future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning to second-year quarterback Geno Smith. The Jets will hope that Decker will be productive enough to help their offense, which often struggled during the 2013 campaign.

Decker appeared in all 16 regular season games for the Broncos last season en route to a Super Bowl loss to the Seattle Seahawks, catching 87 passes for 1,288 yards with 11 touchdowns.
