ESPNNewYork.com has reported the Denver Broncos have expressed interest in trading for New York Jets’ star cornerback Darrelle Revis.

However, the Denver Post has strongly debunked the notion of the Broncos making a run at Revis.

We have often discussed the idea of Revis. If the Broncos were to show interest, I could see why.

The team believes it has a Super Bowl window with Peyton Manning in the next couple of years. Getting a defensive stalwart such as Revis would improve the team. The Broncos are also looking for cornerbacks, so why not consider the best player available?

Still, Revis would be expensive and the Broncos have some other needs that could cause the team to be leery of a Revis pursuit. This is not the first time Revis has been connected to Denver. As the trade talk heats up, it will be interesting to see if the talk continues.

Update: The Broncos reportedly have interest in Pittsburgh free agent Rashard Mendenhall. He’d be part of the rotation in Denver if signed. Mendenhall, 25, has two 1,000-plus yard rushing seasons in his career.

The Denver Post reports the Broncos and the agent for defensive end Elvis Dumervil have not talked since Friday. The team wants Dumervil to take a pay cut, while Dumervil is more interested in restructuring without a pay cut. If an agreement is not made in the coming days, Dumervil will likely be cut or traded. If so, Dumervil will be popular on the open market and Denver will be shopping for a pass-rusher.
