As the New York Jets explore their options with wide receiver Eric Decker, the Baltimore Ravens have emerged as a potential suitor. 

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported the Ravens were among the teams New York reached out to about a possible deal for Decker, adding it's "not out of the realm of possibility" the 30-year-old gets traded.   

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Jets won't release Decker on Wednesday and are still looking to trade him. Schefter reported on Tuesday the Jets were going to trade or release Decker at some point this week. 

The Jets are entering their rebuilding phase by ridding themselves of key veteran players. Brandon Marshall signed with the New York Giants as a free agent. Darrelle Revis was released in March. Calvin Pryor was traded to the Cleveland Browns on June 1. 

Decker has two years remaining on the five-year deal he signed with the Jets in 2014. He only appeared in three games last season due to a shoulder injury, but had 1,027 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns during his last healthy season in 2015.
