    I like his name.

  • They wanted him to , he said he would agree but I think denver wants him to go lower then he did. Elway said his contract is way out of whack.

  • I like him a lot, but with the Bennett and Avril signings, I just don't see a spot for him here.

    My thoughts exactly. We might be able to massage the numbers a bit to get his signing under the cap, but why would you?

    He did now from $12 million / year to $8 million with a $3.5 million roster guarantee for next year (2nd day of league year)

    EDIT: Contract not signed quickly enough so Dumervil is released - LOL

    Not sure what that does to cap implications etc. obviously you should be able to figure out a deal that pretty much puts you back to what you agreed to

  • The release supposedly comes with a dead money hit that will make it difficult for Denver to re-sign him. LOL.

  • Holy Crap, what a screw up that is bad for both sides. Broncos now apparently gonna have a 4.8M dead money charge. WoW

    Can't see him getting 8M in this market.

  • If this was last week i'd ask say that he might not fit in cap wise.

    I have not clue what our FO might do at this point. Not that i every did.

  • There is speculation that his agent delayed, hoping that Denver would let it slide and Dumervil would get his 13.7 million or whatever it was. If that is what happened, they called his bluff and cut Elvis.

  • Last I heard, his agent blew it.

    It's going to cost him some bucks in this market.

    It cost the Broncos $4.98M in dead money, however they save the cash of his salary.

    Dumervil is currently a FA and reportedly, he has already fielded some calls from other teams.

  • The guy is going to cost $8 million minimum to sign (that's what he took as a paycut in denver). I really don't think we have the cap room to invest that much MORE into the position. A week ago I'd have considered it, but now, I'm quite happy with where we are with the position. Signing Branch and draft a linebacker and I think our defense is going to be just fine.

  • I like where we are at on DE. We got bargain short-term deals on a couple young guys with something to prove. I think everything played out just right, even with this development.

    He's been cut, and I'd wager that with Elway having shot his wad on Manning, that he wanted/expected Dumervil to take a big pay cut to make up for it,,,What a dumbass.
    I hope he signs on to an AFC team that plays the "Horsies" twice a Year, because if he does sign with those guys again, after that slight?, he truly would be "DumBervil"

  • Agent fired today and I guess he waived the five day requirement before a new agent is hired.

    Hilarious if you aren't personally involved...

  • They can make it work if they want to. It might require cutting/trading Flynn. Despite signing Avril and Bennett, neither one of them has to play DE, so there's room on the field for him.

    And this might be an unpopular opinion (and I'm not advocating they do this) but they could also consider cutting Clemons instead of hoping he comes back at 100%.
