Times are changing for wide receiver Eric Decker and his beautiful wife Jessie James as the two are expecting a child in March. Unless the Denver Broncos wide receiver is locked up by the team before he hits free agency on March 11, Decker may very well be heading to another city to continue his football career depending on what's best for his wife and family.
Decker admitted that with his wife being pregnant, his family is a huge factor into what his future holds.
"I would like to figure something out and stay here," Decker said via CBS Sports earlier this month about staying in Denver. "But at the same time, my priority is taking care of my family. Me and my wife are having a kid mid-March and it's even more difficult because I want to have her be comfortable. Those are kind of the added stresses to this process."
Decker, who stars alongside his wife on the E! reality television show Eric and Jessie, knows that an important decision awaits his family as the couple expects a baby girl around the same time he might hit the open market.
James had a baby shower in Sydney last month and dropped a hint at what the baby will be named.
"I was overwhelmed by the love and support from my family and friends," the reality television star told E! News. "It was a magical southern celebration and the perfect way to welcome baby V."
Decker fulfilled a dream of playing in the Super Bowl this season, but it was a lopsided affair as the Broncos fell to the Seattle Seahawks 43-8 on Feb. 2. Decker knows the importance of playing with a quarterback the caliber of Peyton Manning, but knows his days playing with the signal caller could be numbered.
"Is it easier to play with Peyton Manning? Yes, 100 percent," Decker told CBS Sports earlier this month. "But you still have to be in the right spot, you still have to find a way to get open, you still have to find a way to make a play. I do feel I'm a pretty good ball player."
Decker said "its natural" to think about other teams but doesn't know what the future holds after he caught 87 passes for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2013.
It remains to be seen where Decker and his wife will end up in this offseason, but times are definitely changing for the Eric and Jessie stars.
