NFL Free Agency 2014: San Diego Chargers not expected to pursue Eric Decker

The NFL offseason is upon us which means that we’re going to start hearing plenty of names discussed when it comes to free agency and where players will go. One player to keep an eye on is Denver Broncos receiver Eric Decker, who appears to be in for a major payday.

Some believe that Decker could get upwards of $9 million per season, but according to the Union-Times in San Diego, the Chargers are not expected to pay that amount for the wide out.

Considering the Chargers are tight against the salary cap and Decker seemingly would want a mountain of cash to leave a Super Bowl contender. … Even with deep receiver classes in both free agency and the upcoming draft, Decker figures to be too expensive for the Chargers.

Decker will be an interesting player to watch, as his magnificent season raised his price but his poor Super Bowl performance may have dinged up his pristine value. Still, the Chargers don’t appear to be in line to steal Decker away from the Broncos, even if they wouldn’t mind adding him to Philip Rivers arsenal.
