Report: Broncos want CB Revis

The SportsXchange

Denver's chase for a championship includes the Broncos actively seeking an upgrade at right cornerback opposite Champ Bailey.

Does that mean a trade for disgruntled New York Jets All-Pro Darrelle Revis is an option?

ESPN reported Sunday that the Broncos expressed interest in a deal for Revis, who is recovering from a torn ACL and is expected to be traded. His future is a relentless topic in New York for first-year Jets general manager John Idzik.

The Falcons, Buccaneers, Lions and 49ers have been linked to a Revis deal. The Jets might opt to let free agency play out as a ploy to get more in return in April. It would also get Revis closer to full recovery from knee surgery.

"None of the trade talks matter if I am not healthy and back to All-Pro form," Revis told NFL Network in February.

Any deal for Revis would be a two-part equation. First, the teams would have to agree on trade compensation, likely a first-round draft pick plus additional draft or veteran assets.

The second and more confounding issue for suitors is structuring a new contract for Revis. He could command as much as $15 million per season on a long-term deal, a steep price for even a proven player coming back from a major injury.

Former Colts general manager Bill Polian said the deal should come down to health.

"I can't predict what's going to happen, but I can tell you what's going to drive the decision, and that's the medical," Polian said in a conference call.
