Free-agent receiver Eric Decker is visiting with the New York Jets on Wednesday, according to an NFL source.

Decker, who caught 85 and 87 passes with 24 touchdowns the past two seasons with the Broncos, is widely considered the top receiver on the free-agent market, although he is usually categorized as a "No. 2" receiver.

Seattle, Indianapolis and Jacksonville are other teams that might have interest in Decker. His agent, Todd France, also represents cornerback Aqib Talib, who Tuesday night reached a six-year, $57 million agreement with the Broncos.

The Broncos, who have been spending big money on the defensive side of the ball, have not given up on re-signing Decker, although they likely need his market to fall.

Decker is expected to get a contract worth between $6 million and $8 million a year.

Besides Talib, the Broncos signed strong safety T.J. Ward to a four-year, $23 million contract with a robust $14 million guaranteed, and they are visiting Wednesday with former Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware.

The Broncos also are expected to sign a middle linebacker from free agency, and they might add one more defensive starter.

Meanwhile, Broncos free-agent linebacker Wesley Woodyard will visit the Tennessee Titans on Thursday. Woodyard visited Tuesday with the New England Patriots. He is seeking a starting weakside linebacker position after the Broncos moved him to the middle last season then benched him in favor of Paris Lenon.
