Denver Broncos, WR Eric Decker Agree on Four Year Contract


The Denver Broncos have agreed upon a contract with third round pick Eric Decker according to Fox 31 reporter Josina Anderson.  The deal is reported to be four years and up to $4.8 million with a $732,150 signing bonus. 

The Broncos and many NFL analysts feel the team has gotten a major steal in Decker, who absolutely dominated the rest of the Big Ten in his four years with the Minnesota Golden Gophers.  Decker is known as a possession receiver, and he projects as a starter for Denver in the future. 

Decker dropped only three passes in his collegiate career, and set virtually every record in Minnesota history for a wide receiver.  His senior season was cut short when he had to have Lisfranc surgery, but his recovery has gone according to plan.

"I feel very good going into this week," Decker said.  "I have worked very hard on increasing my strength and endurance, as well as managing my pain.  Obviously, I don't want any setbacks during camp, but we have an excellent training staff that will work with me to feel confident about taking the field every day."


Decker has not participated in any of the Broncos' offseason activities thus far due to his injury, but he is expected to be at full strength for training camp this weekend, and is certainly a rookie to watch in the pre-season and as his career develops.
