    I'm no Woody hater but I would rather see him walk to keep Decker & Knowshon. As a fan I guess I'm very attached to Moreno for where he has come from to where he is. The man has worked his tail off & the way he blocks for Manning, the type of pass catching RB he is & the authority with which he runs the ball, hell the gets up off the ground after the run. The dude has serious determination. I don't know about Reggie Bush type money?

    Sign Moreno to a Two year deal
    Sign Decker to a three to four year deal
    Keep Woody for cheap or let him walk

    Either which way on Woody I hope we draft a MLB.
    I agree on Moreno, im happy for him but i wouldnt break the bank on him.

    Reggie Bush money was 4 years, 16 million, i posted i'd give him around 3 years, 10-12 million.

    If Irving shows promise, i'd consider letting Woody go unless he'd sign real cheap.

    I'd give Decker longer than that, he's only 26, so he'll be in his prime years, a 5-year deal would be ideal.

    While I do like Decker the Broncos need to also realize that DT is up for contract as well next year. So how much loot do they want to tie up in that position for the next half decade. Personally D. Thomas is a much bigger part of the teams WR future so that is something to keep in mind. As well as Julius, Von and Harris Jr. and DRC will need to be compensated if they choose to keep some if not all. Just a thought

    Good points. I suppose Caldwell is starting to show some promise, but replacing Decker probably wouldn't be as easy (or as inexpensive) as replacing a starting running back.
    I dont think Caldwell would replace him.

    Most likely a cheaper FA, some good options out there.

    Sanders for Pitt, Boldin, Nicks, Tate, even Edelman.

    The reason i'd like to keep Decker, is his size in the redzone and im sure Manning would make a pitch to keep him, even re-do his deal a little bit im sure.

    That's fine & dandy if they want to get younger or go the draft direction, however it wouldn't make any sense to let Knowshon walk to bring in another Willis Mcgahee. If Knowshon has a reasonable asking price I say keep him, Moreno has been very important to Manning & the offense as well.
    Reggie Bush got 4 years, 16 million.

    Thats a good starting point for Moreno.

    3 years, 10-12 million would be a good offer for him imo.

    The dropoff from Moreno to Ball isnt as big as Decker to ?

    Most likely a cheaper FA if Decker cashed in elsewhere.

    If Decker doesnt break the bank, i'd bring him back.

    I hope they can keep Moreno, happy for him but RB's shell-life in the NFL is short.

    Age is definitely a factor. I'm looking at the guys behind Moreno and I see potential that needs to be utilized. I see montee being able to produce better than Moreno given the chance.

    Then I look at the WR spot and wonder who the broncos can slide into the #2 spot that will put up 1000+ Yards/10+ TD's every year and I'm not sure that guy is available.

    If decker asks for anything under 7 mill if I was the broncos I'd pay him. On the other hand, this probably won't be the popular thing around here but I would let Moreno walk regardless. Hopefully he can walk away with a ring to show for all his heart and effort in denver.
    It is a business. I agree that Ball is a better runner, and can become a factor in the passing game. He's definitely gotten better in blocking situations.

    Moreno has had his signature season, and I too would like to see him get a ring for it. The Broncos wouldn't be "turning their backs on him," as some would suggest, but rather thinking about the future instead of clinging to the past. Running backs only have so many good years on their legs.

    I think with a little more experience, montee can be relied on to do everything Moreno does.

    Plus I think montee is a better runner already.

    I agree, I think Ball is a better back, but he has some fumbling problems, and that's what's keeping him from getting the starter position. That and Moreno now has six years of experience in blocking and receiving, as well as running.

    Both should be kept. Ball is a good back, who with some more experience can become an elite RB, I think, and Decker is a solid receiver. He's not amazing, but he's good enough. If he asks for too much money though, they should just let him go.
    Ball had fumbling issues. That hasn't exactly been a problem for quite a while now.

    Decker is becoming one of the better #2 receivers in football. Granted, that's with Peyton throwing, and lots of other targets stealing the heat, but he's gaining confidence. He's fast and just physical enough, and likely heading into his prime years.

    If he asks for a big contract, then it may be money better spent elsewhere.

    I think Moreno's more valuable

    Boy, I just would love to see Moreno get a contract given how hard he's worked to be where he is, how much Manning trusts him and how reliable he is.

    It's almost embarrassing the riches we have on offense though.

    I would rather keep them both, both players are important to this team & just as long as neither try to break the bank.
