NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday on NFL Network's "NFL GameDay Morning" that the organization views Decker as a No. 2 receiver who might be seeking a contract commensurate with a No. 1.
Keep in mind that teams often leak these contract stories in an attempt to drive down a player's value.
The Broncos plan to let Decker come back to them with his best offer on the open market, but there's no guarantee that they will be afforded that opportunity.
Since Decker's free agency is not of the restricted variety, it wouldn't be unusual for him to jump ship if an offer blows his socks off.
"He's perfect for us," a team source told Rapoport.
Although the Broncos are working to keep their defense and coaching staff intact, the offense will be hard-pressed to repeat its record-breaking performance again next season if Moreno and Decker depart.
