The Broncos’ first practice of training camp is scheduled for 8:50 a.m. on Thursday, July 25 – two weeks from today.
“I am (excited). We’re less than two weeks out and I’m excited about the team we have,” Decker said before wrapping up day two of a ProCamp for local children that he hosted with fellow wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.
“I’m excited about the coaching staff we have and really the expectations that people have for and I think we have for ourselves. We get to camp, we get better and we just take it one day at a time.”
Thomas mirrored Decker’s excitement and added that attendance through the voluntary offseason program was a good sign of things to come.
“I’m looking forward to it,” Thomas said. “I’m ready. I’m excited, you know, we’ve got some new additions to the team and through minicamp and OTAs the majority of the team showed up. So I’m excited. Everybody’s ready to work hard and everybody’s participating. I think it should be our year.”
Included in those new additions is receiver Wes Welker who recorded more than 1,300 receiving yards with the Patriots in 2012. Both Decker and Thomas also had more than 1,000 receiving yards last season with 1,064 and 1,434 respectively.
There will be 15 training camp practices at the Paul D. Bowlen Memorial Center that are open to the public and free of charge.
Training camp runs through August 15, two days before the Broncos travel to Seattle for the second preseason game.
But for now, Decker, who was recently married, said he’s trying to stay in shape and make the most of the last two weeks before reporting back to Dove Valley.
“Right now, I’m back in Colorado and doing a workout regimen just getting myself back in shape, back in football shape. And I’m just enjoying the last couple weeks of freedom.”
