He didnt catch anything until the game was out of hand. Otherwise known as garbage time. Difference between decker and thomas though is the speed factor. Decker wont be outrunnibg anybody

The more I think about Decker the more I think just let him walk unless we get a home team discount. Sign a guy like Maclin who has some serious upside, and then resign Caldwell on the cheap.

Demaryius Thomas may have been the AFC champs’ number-one receiver overall, but Decker was right behind him in catches (87 to Thomas’ 92), yards (1,288 to Thomas’ 1,430), yards per catch (14.8 to 15.5), and touchdowns (11 to 14). Peyton Manning had two amazing receivers in Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne when he was in Indianapolis, and it’s not out of line to see Decker as Wayne to Thomas’ Harrison. Decker would be the most prolific receiver on most teams.

Decker has said he wants to return to the Broncos, but reports indicate the team will let him test the open market. Denver has two Thomases — Demaryius and tight end Julius — coming up on contract years, and there’s always the question of what this offense will look like when Peyton Manning retires. The team may believe it needs to allocate its resources elsewhere, which would make Decker a lead-pipe number-one receiver — in role and in contract value.

If you go back and read the reponses to you, I think you'll find that nobody is doing this. The backlash you are getting is for specific posts saying that "Manning doesn't trust Decker, etc."

Really go back and read the responses. NOBODY is saying "sign Decker at all costs/no matter the costs/etc." Most are fine with letting him go and, of those most wanting him back, none are advocating doing so for market value. It's hometown discount or nothing.

I actually think Caldwell could fill in for Decker and it wouldn't be that big of a downgrade. Meanwhile, maybe we could big up a big possession receiver for cheap, if that's even possible anymore- probably would have be a flyer from late rounds of the draft.
