No because he was released and not a expiring contract

Somebody should send this along to Decker. Just something to consider.

Considering all the guys we signed, I doubt it. Not sure how the formula works, but we brought in a lot more quality dudes than we let go. Perhaps.

I like it, get picks for next year. Elway already has one eye on the rebuild.

Don't tell me Jon Gruden,Tony Dungy or Bill Cower.. we know these ex-coaches will never come back to the NFL, if they wanted to .. they could have countless times over.
Why not Seattle's Defense Coordinator Dan Quinn who was coveted by several teams in need but didn't want to wait til after the Super Bowl? He's done incredible things with the attitude and fire those guys play with. Bring some of that to Denver! We won't get it from Fox!

He has the regular season god Peyton Manning. Two of those division titles have nothing to do with him, and even the first one is questionable as he wanted to keep rolling with Kyle Orton.

Let him leave...we can find better in FA.

He didn't see but 1 pass in the super bowl and would be a 700 yard WR with any other QB.

We heard this when we had Shanahan. And like then I'll say we don't know till we do it. I view Fox as passionless and too conservative. You don't hang on to something that isn't working because you can't predict the future. I don't believe anyone thinks he will be gone this year but I do have a problem with an extension before he has a chance to prove himself next year.

Worked out badly for Rich Rodriguez.

I like decker. Seems like a good guy. But I'd let him go if he wanted #1 money. Peyton can turn anyone into a guy who wants or can ask for #1 money.
As far as fox...we keep him. This job this team did with all the injuries was amazing. They laid a turd sunday but that wasn't just on the coaching staff.

I agree on the extension part. My issue is with those calling for the guys head. I'm not saying give the guy an extension, but give him the rest of his contract. We dealt with Shanahan being average and living off a reputation for a decade and 2 seasons of pure ****, we can deal with another double digit wins season with a team that can contend.

Free agent Golden Tate told Sports Radio 950 KJR in Seattle that he's "very willing" to take a hometown discount with the Seahawks.
"I probably shouldn’t even say this right now but I’m going to say it anyway just because I love Seattle, honestly," said Tate. "I would rather take a little less to be happy and win ballgames than to take way more and go to a crappy city where the fans don’t give a crap about the team." Tate would need to take a hometown discount for the Seahawks to afford him. Just how much of a discount he's willing to take will determine whether he stays put.

Now that is something you'd like to see Decker come out and say.

I remember Decker before the KC game. He liked waving at officials more than reaching for a catch.

Talk is cheap, let's see what Tate actually does before we praise him. Plus with such short career and potential for major damage one's body any player would be stupid not to max out his earning potential.

I would be fine with letting Decker go and resigning Caldwell to a cheaper contract than Decker is all but guaranteed at this point. Caldwell played well in the limited time he got and he has elite speed, unlike Decker.

If I'm Eric Decker, i want my agent to get me as much money as possible and a job with the Colts. Be long term greedy.

I do have a hunch he remains a Bronco. Seems to be an abundance of WR talent out there and i don't see anyone overpaying for him. Moreno might be the one who gets overpaid for. (relatively overpaid)

A finesse receiver that runs like a possession receiver with the physicality of a worn out turtleneck sweater. Pay that man.

I think Decker knows he has to cash in his Manning stat bump before it disappears.

Decker was targeted SIX times....He Caught ONE!
Welker caught 6 of 8 , DT 13 of 18.

Which one didn't show up?
As you say he is a 700 yd receiver without PM, and he will trip over the 30 yard line at least once a season.

The one playing against Richard Sherman.

The reality is that none of those clowns showed up. Probably 50 total yards passing while the game was within 3 scores.
