Darrelle Revis trade rumors: John Elways says Broncos have 'no interest'

The Broncos became the latest team to deny having interest in trading for Darrelle Revis, leaving the Jets with no obvious direction to turn.

Darrelle Revis presumably remains a hot name on the trading block, though it's still unclear who is actually interested in the veteran cornerback. When asked about Revis on Tuesday, Denver Broncos general manager John Elway denied having any interest in making a trade with the New York Jets, neither now nor in the past.

If the Broncos were going to be a strong suitor, signing Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie last week probably didn't help. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers seemed like the most likely landing spot for Revis at one point, but the franchise has reportedly grown impatient with the Jets.

Should discussions break down with the Bucs, it's unclear what the Jets would do next. The team has already paid Revis' $1 million roster bonus, so perhaps a new contract is in the works. If the Jets are going to trade Revis, they will need to make a decision by June 1 or be on the hook for a $5 million cap hit in 2013, and a $9 million cap hit in 2014.
