Left tackle Taylor Decker is getting some love for his performance this season halfway into 2020.

According to Pro Football Focus, Decker has racked up the fourth-most pass-blocking snaps without allowing a sack at 275. He hasn’t allowed a sack through seven games.

The site currently rates the 2016 first-rounder at a solid 81.4. Last year he was one of PFF’s highest-graded tackles and is having a career year so far in his fifth season.

In September, Decker signed a six-year deal worth $85 million with $37.5 million guaranteed. At the time of the deal, the average $14.2 million per year landed him in the top 10 highest paid NFL tackles.

At last check, Decker returned to practice after sitting on Wednesday with a back injury. He’s on track to play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

And onto the rest of your notes.
