In 2012, John Elway and the Broncos signed the biggest name in the free-agent pool, Peyton Manning.
In 2013, Elway and the Broncos signed arguably the biggest name in the wide receiver free-agent pool, Wes Welker.
Will the Broncos make a push for the star cornerback? Elway’s limited history in the front office suggests he goes big in free agency. Revis certainly would be going big.
This would be a statement the Broncos recognize the Manning window is closing, and they are going all in. One week after releasing the elite cornerback of a generation, Champ Bailey, the Broncos would be signing another. Revis remains the premier cornerback in the NFL. He’s the kind of big, physical, dominant — yeah, almost perfect — corner the Seahawks used to beat up the Broncos in the Super Bowl.
Should the Broncos spend the $10 million-plus on a one- or two-year deal with Revis?
Maybe the better question is, Why not?
If they don’t, look for another contender, such as the Dark Lord’s Patriots, to make that move.
