Broncos receiver Eric Decker becomes a free agent on March 11, and it will be at least that long before he knows whether he’ll remain in Denver.
“I would love to come back. I don’t know my future either,” Decker said, via 9 News in Denver.
Decker caught 87 passes for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns during the regular season, and those stats could be enough to convince some team to pay him like a No. 1 receiver. If so, it’s tough to see the Broncos matching that offer because he’s not their No. 1 receiver. The Broncos could lose Decker and replace him with a rookie or a cheaper free agent, and they’d be just fine with a passing game that still features Peyton Manning, Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas and Wes Welker.
So while Decker won’t know for sure until mid-March, there’s a good chance that his future is somewhere other than in Denver.
