Eric Decker, Jessie James land inevitable reality show


Given the times we live in, a reality television show starring Eric Decker and Jessie James was inevitable.

Decker is a standout wide receiver for the Denver Broncos. James is a rising country music star. They're both rich, famous and physically attractive to a depressing degree.

It simply was a matter of time, and now E! -- drunk off the vacant-brained success of "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" -- has announced a late-summer television debut for "Love and Other Contact Sports: Eric and Jessie."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will "chronicle the sexy young couple's road to the altar as they juggle careers, relationships, family and more."

Decker received permission from Broncos executive vice president of football operations John Elway before giving his soul to basic cable.

"He came in and talked to me about it," Elway told reporters Monday, via "I gave it my blessing."

Decker later took to Twitter to alleviate any concerns from Broncos fans that his performance could be compromised by aligning with the Kardashian axis of evil.

We will check in on this television show for professional reasons. If it's train-wreck TV, we'll revisit in this space. You can decide if that's a promise or a threat.
