Should the Broncos bring back Eric Decker?

New, comments

Denver needs a third receiver and Decker’s market doesn’t seem that great, so it could work for both sides. And it would be fun.

AFC Championship - New England Patriots v Denver Broncos

Good morning, Broncos Country!

As is the case with most fanbases, Denver Broncos fans love the thought of ex-players making a return to the franchise.

It often isn’t conceivable or probable, but there are times it makes sense. Eric Decker is one of those instances. My main motivation is so that my wife can wear her jersey again and I didn’t waste money, but it works for both sides. The Broncos need a third receiver, and Decker’s market doesn’t seem that great, and that helps with getting a good deal for the team. There’s obviously the history. It could be a good fit, and Decker adds another veteran presence.

Whether it happens, we’ll see. But it’s fun to consider; especially when it comes to veteran leadership. Not to mention having my wife able to wear her jersey again, which is the most important.
