Mayhew should look to Denver for help

Mayhew needs to look seriously to the Denver Broncos before somebody else jumps on this. But reportedly (via ESPN Insider) Denver is open to offers for Elvis Dumervil and Brandon Marshall. I think this could be our golden parachute out of the Bobby Layne/Barry Sanders/Matt Millen (whichever you prefer) curse era and into a bit of respectability.

I think we could package Peterson, 1st rounder, 4th rounder and White to swing this deal. Obviously that would leave us with a little hole as far as the Suh/McCoy etching if we keep our first rounder, but we could go after a FA, perhaps Casey Hampton, to fill the void. Mayhew, Schwartz and Gunther aren't too keen on Suh or McCoy anyways, from what is being said, so I can't see much problem there.

I think then we should also definitely make a run at Ray Edwards too.

Then just fill, backup QB, backup RB, LG, RG, and CB thru FA and the draft and we're in contention instantly IMO.

Just think, Stafford to Calvin and Marshall, two of the freakiest athletic receivers to play the game. I wouldn't sleep for days if we pulled something like that off.

I know it's dreams but it's something to think about for a new day under a new regime, possibly.

...
