So basically this is all just made up speculation and I don't believe it for a second.

Why would you give up a 1st and 3rd rounder and 16 million a year for a cornerback? Who were Baltimore's starting corners the end of this season? Cary Williams and Jimmy Smith?

There is just no need to put these type of resources into the cornerback position, especially a veteran coming off major knee surgery. You just don't see the value it would bring in terms of wins. At least, I don't.

The rumor mill has it that Denver is offering the Jets Elvis Dumervil and possibly a 1st round pick for Revis. This is about the only way that this deal will work for our beloved Broncos. The cap space that trading Dumervil would free up in addition to the 2.4million in extra cap that teams were given this year, may very well be enough for the Broncos to be able to afford Revis.

Not sure what rumor mill has Doom involved but link is relevant to discussion.

If we send Doom plus a 1st to the jets,... the drunk Mr. Bowlen is back again.

I wouldn't go there. The comments I've seen Elway make on Irving is that he'll get a chance and they like some of the things he does but in no way does Elway talk about him like he's really coming on, which we all haven't seen either. Brookings too old. Steven Johnson and even bigger question mark then Irving. Mays blows. DJ and Trevathon are the only other real option here. I don't know, it could be alright with those 2. The Ravens won the SB and Lewis wasn't exactly looking like his old self. He played decent in the playoffs but not special. We need to have better DT play for sure, that's going to really help whom ever we have playing MLB.

I don't think Revis will get paid what he wants. Maybe close to it but not the full amount. Not having come off an injury like that. Might be some incentives built in there.

What's the old saying again? You don't put an excessive amount of money into 1 position, that is, you don't pay premium money for two CBs (Bailey and Revis). If the Broncos did bring in Revis, how much $ would be tied up between these two players, this one position?

Too much IMHO. Champ has a year left in the tank, draft a young CB like Trufant, have him learn from Champ, then move Champ to safety.

I thought they'd dangle Elvis. His salary does not match his big game performance. His sacks come in bunches against lesser competion

I still think Denver should draft a DT in the first and Ball in the second if he is there. Denver can get a CB in FA or in the draft. Carter is coming back, Champs, Harris. I don't see why the desperation to get Revis.

The only real way that Revis make sense is if the Broncos are wanting to cut Champ or move Champ to safety. Who is Revis going to replace, Harris, or Champ? This just does not really add up.

Trade Doom and a 1st for Revis and sign Freeny to a nice vet contract. You'll get more production out of Freeney and Revis than Elvis and a 1st round pick any day and probably close to the same cap number

Yeah, except for when Miller is double teamed. Than it creates a whole new set of problems.

They'll get no firsts and like it. If Doom is in the deal they can peddle around with our third. We'll haggle and land on a second plus a conditional next near. If Rex Ryan doesn't like it he can suck toes.

A first round pick, and Doom, for a CB that has been consistently injured and now wants a contract to make it rain? I don't see it happening. It's not like the Broncos suck at CB. I can understand wanting to unload Dooms contract but not for a guy who will hold out for more money after this coming season.

Maybe they really liked what they saw out of Wolfe last year. He was more productive on the end than inside. Put him full time at end, match Revis with Champ this year and develop our young corners for another year. Move Champ to S and bring someone up in the years to come. Draft middle of the D.

You dump Dumervil and a 1st who comes in and starts at DE opposite Wolfe That's if Wolfe even stays there and doesn't move inside this year. The DL has enough questionmarks at the minute without trading your best lineman. As I write this Sealver Siliga and Ben Garland are the only DT's on the roster bar Wolfe.
