Minnesota WR Eric Decker Visiting The Chiefs

Wide receiver is a perceived position of need for the Kansas City Chiefs and they've been checking some out leading up to the NFL draft on April 22nd.

According to Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Chiefs will take a closer look at Minnesota Gophers WR Eric Decker.

Gophers WR Eric Decker will have left foot examined in Indy on Friday so NFL doctors can evaluate progress. He will visit Chiefs after that.

Decker had surgery to fix some torn ligaments in his foot -- a Lisfranc sprain --  which ended his college career prematurely. He had the surgery in early November and, according to a report, will need eight months to fully heal.

That would put him available in early June.

Decker has good size -- 6'3" and 217 pounds -- and has already drawn the interest of the Chiefs.

Other teams reportedly expressing interest include the Browns and Saints -- both coaches coming from the Parcells tree.
