Eric Decker would be “very receptive” to coming back to the Broncos

Would you like to see Eric Decker return to the Denver Broncos?

NFL: AFC Divisional Playoff-Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos drafted Eric Decker in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft and he went on to have an outstanding four-year run with the team before moving on to the New York Jets and then the Tennessee Titans in free agency.

He is back in Denver, but not on any official visits. In an interview on 104.3 The Fan, Decker told former teammate Brandon Stokley he would be open to returning to the team.

“I definitely would be very receptive in coming back to Denver,” Decker said.

It would be an intriguing option for the Broncos. The 31-year old wide receiver has had a few down seasons, but proved with the Jets he wasn’t just a by product of Peyton Manning in Denver.

Pairing him back up with Demaryius Thomas, with Emmanuel Sanders handling either the number two spot or the slot would give the Broncos an additional red zone weapon to work with.

“Listen,” Decker said. “There’s no hold on my end. Whoever you need to call Brandon [Stokley], whoever you need to reach out to, please do.”

What do you think, Broncos Country? I say sign him!
