Decker has now been signed. Comparing to Tate

Alright so I am going to start off by saying maybe I am just a fan of polls but eh they are fun. I just found out Decker was signed to the Jets for 5yr/36.25mil with 15mil guaranteed. Tate was signed as well as know to the Lions for 5 yr/31mil with 13.25mil guarenteed. So I ask you all; who would you rather have? Decker was widely considered the best free agent WR on the market and though Tate is no slouch he wasn't as highly touted as Decker. Now theoretically if they were options would you rather have Tate at the contract he signed or Decker at the contract he signed?
I personally thought Decker was going to make a lot more money. I read about how he is expected WR1 money, which in my mind is atleast 10+ mil a year. So looking at the contract he signed it seems like a bargain. I was expecting Tate between 5-7, that's almost a 2 fold difference between the players, yet they have contracts that are in my opinion pretty similar. If you were the Seahawks front office would you rather give 6.2mil/year to Tate or 7.25 mil/year for Decker.
Looking at their numbers and physical stats I feel like the extra 1mil/year for Decker is palpable. You are getting a huge red-zone target (6'3" vs 5'10") who(though he could be a product of Peyton) has produced MULTIPLE 1000 yard season along with 10+ TD's. Who would you guys rather get?
