CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) - Eric Decker got lost on his way to his first training camp practice this week. The New York Jets have no concerns about whether the wide receiver will be able to find the end zone for them.

Decker, signed as a free agent after four years with Denver, is tied with New Orleans' Jimmy Graham for the NFL lead with 18 touchdown catches in the red zone during the past two seasons.

The Jets have a league-low 19 scoring receptions inside the opponents' 20-yard line - as a team - during that span.

While Decker is in a new offense and no longer has Peyton Manning throwing him passes, he should serve as a big-time weapon in Marty Mornhinweg's offense. Michael Vick says some of Decker's route running is "unbelievable."
