In an interview with SiriusXM NFL radio on Tuesday, Broncos standout wide receiver Eric Decker said he wants to stay in Denver, but taking care of his family comes first.
“I would like to figure something out and stay here,” Decker said. “But at the same time, my priority is taking care of my family. Me and my wife are having a kid mid-March and it’s even more difficult because I want to have her be comfortable. Those are kind of the added stresses to this process.”
Decker understands the importance of playing with Peyton Manning, but he’s not going to let that be the determining factor in his decision.
“Is it easier to play with Peyton Manning? Yes, 100 percent,” Decker said. “But you still have to be in the right spot, you still have to find a way to get open, you still have to find a way to make a play. I do feel I’m a pretty good ball player.”
If Decker is looking to make money, the team with the most money is the Oakland Raiders. The question is will they be willing to fork the money over for him?
