Jets WR Eric Decker buys dinner for homeless veteran

Thursday November 17th, 2016

It’s been a rough couple of months for Jets receiver Eric Decker, but he’s doing his part to make the world a better place. 

On Wednesday, one day after his second surgery in a month, Decker and his wife were walking in New York when a man approached them and said he was hungry. Decker decided to take the man to a halal cart and get him a hot meal. His wife, Jessie, posted the whole story on Instagram.

Decker had surgery on his hip on Oct. 18 and underwent another surgery on his shoulder on Tuesday. It’s good to see he’s making the most of his rehab time.
