Could Darrelle Revis be a Bronco this year?
As reported by Incarcerated Bob on 02/28 the Denver Broncos are 1 of 3 teams who have made offers to the Jets for Darrelle Revis. Along with the Vikings and the Saints the Denver Broncos appear to be making a play for the Jets’ star corner.
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.
I for one am against this deal. Yes, Champ Bailey had a bad game against Baltimore, but our top 3 corners last year as a whole performed phenomenally. Part of the reason we performed so well was because of our excellent pass rush. I think giving up the team’s second leading sack master to bolster a corps of DB’s that is already top 3 in the league seems like a ridiculous idea.
I have all the faith in the world that our lord and savior (VP Football Operations) John Elway would never lead this team astray but from the outside looking in: I don’t like the way this deal looks right now.
Let me know what you think below in the comments. Is it worthwhile to give up ½ of Doom and Gloom for Darrelle Revis?
