Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Eric Decker may have missed spring practices this offseason while rehabbing a foot injury, but now he’s taken a step towards ensuring he begins his first year on the right foot. “I just got off the phone with my agent. Today we reached an agreement with the Denver Broncos organization which I am very excited about. It feels good to know I’ll report to camp focused on football and preparing myself to help this team in anyway,” said Decker to Fox31’s Josina Anderson
Decker was the highest selection of the four big-name Bronco draftees that remained unsigned at the outset of this week. Decker contacted Fox31’s Anderson Sunday evening to indicate he was close to finalizing his deal. Monday Decker and the Broncos came to terms. He will report to training camp on time. The Broncos 2010 third-round 87th overall pick out of the University of Minnesota will sign a four-year contract for a $4.8 million max deal and a $732,150 signing bonus on Tuesday.“ It’s a very rewarding moment especially after the ups and downs I experienced over the last year. Hopefully, this is just the beginning to a long and successful career,” said Decker.
The Broncos rookies are scheduled to report to Dove Valley this Wednesday. Decker says he’ll be striving to maintain full participation in camp, and will do what is within his control to prevent any health-related setbacks.“I feel very good going into this week. 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 everyday.”

Last year, the former Gopher wideout suffered a devastating lisfranc injury to his left foot at Ohio State Oct. 24 which abruptly ended his collegiate career. In the process of his recovery Decker participated in the star-studded Larry Fitzgerald camp on Minnesota’s campus this early July. However, Decker told Anderson back in June that he actually began running routes the week of the 7th. Before Decker’s injury some experts projected him as a first or second-round pick in this year’s NFL draft. Yet while he’s been roundly credited for his toughness, route-running and determination, his pro-level speed has been equally questioned. Now Decker is anxious to prove his critics wrong, and to also show a small-community kid from Cold Spring, Minnesota can make it big and eventually start in this league. However, Decker will take it one step at a time. “My goals going into camp and for this upcoming season is to make a role for myself that will better this team. Mastering the system, learning from the veterans, and becoming a better student of the game are first and foremost at this time.” Prior to his foot injury, Decker was on pace to have his most productive season his senior year recording 50 catches for 758 yards and five touchdowns over eight games in 2009. Through three games that year he was ranked as high as 6th in the country in receiving yards averaging 124.8 yards per game. Now Decker hopes he will produce on that level and then some.


Fox31 sports traveled to Decker’s hometown two months ago to document his life story which will premiere Saturday July 31st on Double Coverage at 9:30pm

I have huge hopes for this guy.

As high as any other 2010 draftee.

We really did draft high calibre personalities with loads of potential this year.

If you aren't already, you should follow @adam_schefter, @maxbroncos, and @profootballtalk. Between the three of them you should get all of the bronco scoops without having to endure Josina.

Good news. I'm interested to see how he performs this year. His main strength are his hands. Looks like a 4.7 guy. Almost looks to be more of a Hback (Shannon Sharpe/Billy Miller) than a WR.

Elite speed or not, this guy can make a difference. He has a great football head and an ability to come down with the ball in traffic.

Hold outs no. But not all 3rd get in to start camp.
