John Elway confirmed he expects Moreno, Decker to hit the market

Denver Broncos executive VP of football operations and general manager John Elway told the media on Friday that he expects running back Knwoshon Moreno, wide receiver Eric Decker and linebacker Wesley Woodyard to test free agency.

And Elway said he expects all of the Broncos’ unrestricted free agents, including running back Knowshon Moreno, wide receiver Eric Decker and linebacker Wesley Woodyard, to test the market before considering if they would re-sign with the team.

Elway said Decker, in particular, will see what his value is elsewhere. Especially with tight endJulius Thomas and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, as well as wide receiver Wes Welker, up for free agency after the 2014 season.

“I think they have to hit the market, the market sets those, especially where you look where we are and what we have coming up,” Elway said. “Both Thomas’ are up next year. And Wes is, too. So all that plays into it. We’d love to have Eric back, but he’s made he comment he’s like to be back. He’s got to do what’s best for Eric, too, and vice versa. That’s why we go through this process.”
