BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Today's just Eric Decker's sixth day and third practice as a member of the Patriots, but the ninth-year receiver already knows New England's a special place.

"There's no question why they consistently win, why they're consistently on top," Decker said. "Just the way they work. Every detail. Everybody throughout the building does their job, does their best, and it's quite fascinating to be a part of it and just trying to fit in."

Decker played the first four years of his career in Denver - the last two with Peyton Manning - but now he's getting the chance to work with another future Hall of Famer in Tom Brady.

Decker will have a strong chance to compete for a spot, especially with Julian Edelman suspended the first four games of the season.

"He's one of the best, if not the best," Decker said of Brady. "Just the way he goes about his business. Detailed, takes care of himself on the field. Detail oriented, commands in the huddle. Pushes people, keeps you accountable. Things you want in a leader. It's been fun to be his teammate these last few days and kind of learn how he carries himself as a pro, and things that I can take and help myself."

Decker totaled 54 catches for 563 yards and a touchdown last season for the Titans. He signed a one-year deal worth up to $2.1 million. Pats will open their preseason tomorrow with the Redskins in Foxborough.
