What's riskier than going out on the football field and risking your life? Agreeing to do a reality series about your love life.

Eric Decker, who played both football and baseball for the University of Minnesota, will star in "Love and Other Contact Sports: Eric and Jessie," an E! series expected to debut in late summer.

Decker has made a name for himself as a receiver for the Denver Broncos, but it's safe to assume that the real draw here is fiancee Jessie James, a country singer whose more known for her racy videos than her songs.

Decker, who went to high school in Cold Spring, Minn., got engaged to the entertainer last April. The show will chronicle the couple's wedding, which is expected to take place this summer.
