Wide receiver Eric Decker is set to be a free agent on March 11 and teams can actually start negotiating with players three days prior to the free agent market opening. The battle in the west, has been seeing if the Broncos can get Decker back under contract before free agency kicks off. It is starting to look like that will not be happening.
Rumors say Decker is looking for about $10 millions a year, a price that the Broncos will not pay. In result, Decker says he will do what he must for his family.
“If we can get on the same page, I will welcome a call from the Broncos, but I need to do what is best for my family,” Decker said. “It’s not all about the money for me. It’s about going to work everyday and having fun and enjoying my job.”
Decker says it is not about the money, but the wide receiver is sure making his case that it very well could be. Last year, wide receiver Mike Wallace left the Pittsburgh Steelers and made $60 million with the Miami Dolphins — a decision that cost the Dolphins a pretty penny and did not get the best results from.
Of course, the Dolphins have a lot more on their plate now, and so do the Broncos. the money they could save on Decker could go towards a new contract with Knowshon Moreno or repairing other things on the team.
As for Decker, it seems that he and the Broncos couldn’t be farther apart from getting a deal done. The wide receiver is looking for something the Broncos will not supply.
