“It’s not all about the money for me. It’s about going to work every day and having fun and enjoying my job,” the player said on SiriusXM NFL Radio.
On March 11, when the market opens, the veteran receiver is expected to be one of the top unrestricted free agents available. Pay per head services saw that last season, Decker did an excellent job in Denver’s record-setting offense led by Peyton Manning, catching 87 passes for 1,288 yards and scoring 11 touchdowns. In his first season with Manning and the Broncos, he hauled in 85 passes for 1,064 yards and 13 scores.
Decker, 26-years-old, said in the interview that he is very happy with the culture around the Broncos and did not close the door on staying with the team, and price per head sportsbooks know that many fans don’t want to see him go anywhere.
“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,” he said.
Pay per head services saw that at the end of the season, Decker offered similar thoughts when he was cleaning out his locker.
“There is a side of playing football and there is the business side,” Decker said. “That’s something that obviously I’ll have to have conversations with my representation. I want to do the best thing for my family and myself. This is an organization that any player wants to come to. I mean, they treat you first-class. It’s a winning organization. They’ve built a culture here that is phenomenal. I would love to play here. Unfortunately, that’s something that isn’t always in my control. You’ve just got to take it in stride and again, have those conversations, see what the next couple of months will bring.”

This is the first venture into free agency for Decker, who could have the franchise tag used on him. But price per head sportsbooks believe that this may be unlikely because Demaryius Thomas, who is widely considered to be the No. 1 receiver in the club, and tight end Julius Thomas, are entering contract years in 2014, which means that Denver will have to set money aside to make sure that neither player reaches free agency.
