(Jim McIsaac/Getty Images North America) The Denver Broncos have made big splashes in every offseason since 2009 — expect that trend to continue this spring. Currently, the team appears to be jockeying to land All-Star cornerback Darrelle Revis via trade with the New York Jets.  Allow us to connect the dots: The Broncos have already been linked to Revis several times this offseason, and are not afraid to invested a lot of money on defense. After securing left tackle Ryan Clady with their franchise tag, the team still has a nice chunk of 2013 cap space available. But the team is not satisfied with the space available, and are likely to cut D.J. Williams, freeing up another $6 million. Now, the team wants Elvis Dumervil to take a pay cut and are threatening to cut him and bring in Dwight Freeney. If Dumervil, Williams and Joe Mays are cut, the team would have over $20 million in additional cap space. So, with all of that in mind, it’s not hard to imagine Denver making an offer for Revis.  As IAOFM.com‘s Ted Bartlett has pointed out, the Broncos could secure Revis for $6 million in 2013 and use their franchise tag on him the following offseason (his no-franchise tag deal with the Jets would not transfer in a trade). The Broncos could cut (or possible trade) Dumervil and clear up $12 million, sign Revis for $6 million this year and still go after Freeney with the additional $6 million left over from Dumervil’s contract.  That sounds like an ideal situation, and it may be just what John Elway is planning. Would you like to see Revis line up across from Champ Bailey in Denver’s secondary?  Share your thoughts in the comments below.
