Decker mentioned that while he would like to be back in Denver next year, he intends to do “what is best for my family.”
Decker added that; “It’s not all about the money for me. It’s about going to work everyday and having fun and enjoying my job.”
In most scenario’s, doing what’s best for your family usually implies that you intend to shop around and maximize your current situation from a financial aspect. Maybe Decker really is looking for the perfect balance between a number of factors, but it appears as though his odds of re-signing with the Broncos are pretty slim at this point in time.
As we’ve mentioned before, the Broncos have a number of players to address this offseason including extension candidates like WR Demaryius Thomas and TE Julius Thomas who will both be entering the final year of their contracts and are in line for sizable contracts.
If there is one position that the Broncos could gamble on finding a replacement, it’s probably at receiver given that this year’s draft class is loaded with solid receiver prospects. Denver needs to shore up their defense as the Seahawks wound up having their way with them in the Super Bowl.
Decker, 26, could end up being the top receiver on the open market, which could further impact his chances of being back in Denver.
We have him listed as the No. 16 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
