var ACE_AR = {Site: '898551', Size: '468060', CallType: 'IFRAME'}; According Mike Klis of the Denver Post,  Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker is expected to command about $8-9 million as a free agent. The defending AFC champion Broncos want Decker back and Decker would like to stay. Money might separate them. A free agent, Decker is expected to command a multiyear contract worth $8 million to $9 million per year as one of the top “No. 2″ receivers in the NFL. Decker’s agent, Todd France, and the Broncos had preliminary discussions about a contract during the scouting combine last week in Indianapolis. But an indication the Broncos want Decker to lower his asking price is that general manager John Elway said the receiver and all of Denver’s free agents will be allowed to test the market before engaging in serious negotiations. The league’s free-agent market opens March 11. Decker would be  foolish to not test free agency.  I’m sure there’s at least one team that’s willing to overpay him.  The salary cap shooting up will also only help Decker since it will give teams more money to work with.   Need NFL Tickets?
