Elvis Dumervil wants to be a Denver Bronco, and there were even talks that he would be willing to restructure his contract in order to stay in Denver. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like Dumervil will be willing to take enough of a pay cut for the Broncos liking, and if they can’t come to an agreement, he may be cut as early as Friday.
According to Broncos GM John Elway, he wants Dumervil to stay, but thinks his contract is “Out of whack“.
“It’s not all about dollars. But when it’s way out of whack? Then it’s so out of whack that you’ve got to say: That (salary) can’t be it. Especially when you look at the market and what’s out there now,” Elway told me. “It’s so far out of whack. Hopefully, he realizes that.”
In 16 games with the Broncos last season, the Pro Bowl defensive end had 54 tackles, 6 forced fumbles and 11.0 sacks.
