Havent you heard?

We only have 37 players signed, and we ONLY have $18 mil to sign everyone. Pat Bowlen is broke.

I would be pissed if Denver picked him up. There are other, far more glaring issues on defense than cornerback.

no the hell there isn't. if the CB doesn't get roasted in coverage and allow the Jones to get 6 yards away then Moore's bad play on the ball is moot and we win that game.

Watch the play again. He didn't get roasted. He was clearly playing a zone and "dropped" coverage expecting the help over top. He got the help, but the help played the ball wrong and here we are.


Well Revis would NO DOUBT be an instant upgrade on this defense. But I think his cost would mean that you would not be looking at any FA MLB's or DT's that are really high end. I can't say it would be a bad move either because the dude is only 27 and he is a very well rounded CB, much like Champ in his prime. In a few years Champ will be gone and we would still have this guy. If we landed him, wow, that would be a nice secondary as far as your CB's go. Champ, Revis and Harris playing the nickel. Still would hope to get 1 good safety to go along with them and hopefully we could find a decent MLB and DT. Maybe if Revis wanted a real shot at a few rings with Manning he could be traded here and restructure the contract.

Considering he's known for being a mercenary, albeit a very talented one and we have other priorities like Clady, i'm not too keen. Bed ****ting against Baltimore aside, we are deep at CB and he'd immediately wipe out about around 12 million of cap space. Id rather Welker and an emotional leader for this team which is sorely needed (Manti falling could be a serious blessing)

I wonder if Tanahan will pull another "take it up the azzz" trade. Do I see Morris going to the Jets for Revis Island and a second? Hey, don't laugh. No, I'm serious... lulz.

Oh ****, that'd be awesome. Adding a healthy Revis, Orakpo, Carriker, Davis, etc could be ass-kicking time.

So you hate Von Miller because of the spray-tanned guy giving out free advice at the gym?

Because he's not Patrick Petersen, he's not a CB, he's not the player Rev wanted the Broncos to draft in '11, and he didn't go to LSU.....or all of the above.

yah maybe. He definitely wants his own little treasure island. It will be interesting to see what the jets are willing to take for him.

Coming off an injury? I'd say a 2nd, but I'm sure a team would give out a first.

terrible idea, but someone was bound to suggest it. we're too strong at corner to throw a $20 million signing bonus at Revis every year.
