The Broncos have shown interest in Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, according to ESPN.com.

Denver feels it has a window of opportunity to win now with quarterback Peyton Manning, ESPN said, but they have a need at the cornerback position.

The Jets, meanwhile, are approaching their first "artificial deadline," the report said. If the team doesn't trade Revis, who has one year left on his current deal, by Saturday, he will automatically earn $1 million that wouldn't have to be returned if he were traded.

The report also said Revis' side wants the issue to be resolved as soon as possible because of fears the cornerback market will disappear. Sean Smith and Aqib Talib are all available at the position. If they are signed before Revis can be dealt, his value could take a hit.
