And for the person who now possesses the ball, he's willing to make it "worth your while" to get it.
The 25-year-old left tackle scored on an 11-yard tackle-eligible pass reception from Matthew Stafford during the Lions' 30-16 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. After he scored, he tossed the ball into the crowd.
Later, he wished he hadn't done it.

To whoever caught/has the football I threw into the crowd. I've played football since first grade, and that was my first ever touchdown. I would love to have that football. I'd be more than happy to make it worth your while if you'd consider returning that to me. Thank you!!
Decker also reached out to fans on Twitter, putting on a full social media press to get the ball back. Multiple people on Twitter have since contacted Decker to say they have the ball.
"That's my first-ever touchdown," Decker said after the game. "Been playing football since first grade, always been an O-lineman. So for my first touchdown to come as a left tackle in the NFL is pretty damn cool.
"And I think I threw a duck into the stands. So whatever fan has that ball, I'd like it back."
Decker tweeted Monday morning that he believes he's found the person who has the ball.
