The Elvis Dumervil saga is finally over. The former Bronco is heading to Baltimore according to Denver Post reporter Mike Klis.

Klis reports Dumervil–one of the most highly sought after free agents this year–has agreed to a multiyear contract with the Ravens, according to two of his sources.

The move will create a domino effect across the league. The Broncos are expected to make a hard push for John Abraham, and if they can’t get him, Klis reports Dwight Freeney would be the next option. Both players visited with the team on Thursday.

Over the past few days, the Elvis Dumervil saga has taken a couple of incredibly strange turns. On Friday, he was released by the Denver Broncos after the paperwork to restructure his contract wasn’t filed before the deadline that would see his 2013 base salary become official. Yesterday, Dumervil fired his agent Marty Magid as a result of that revised contract fiasco (a message to all player agents: you need to use something more technologically advanced than a fax machine).

Today, he hired a new agent and there were a slew of teams interested in signing him, including: Baltimore, New England and Tennessee.

Well, you can add Pittsburgh to that list of teams vying for his services.

The saga that never ends continues. Jason La Canfora reports Elvis Dumervil has signed with agent Tom Condon.

Dumervil fired Marty Magid after the fax machine snafu that culminated in Denver releasing him. The Louisville alum waived the five-day waiting period to hire a new agent and is now free to sign with teams right away.

Teams interested in his services include Baltimore, Tennesee and New England, though the Patriots tend to avoid Condon clients.

Cleveland Browns v Denver BroncosElvis Dumervil’s agent has told the Miami Herald his client is interested in joining the Miami Dolphins.

Dumervil, a Miami native, was released by the Broncos after a fax machine snafu resulted, that stated the pass rusher would agree to a pay cut, in the required paperwork arriving minutes after the league imposed deadline.

Marty Magid, Dumervil’s agent, told the Herald’s Barry Jackson that a handful of teams have called about Dumervil and that he will reach out to teams that will fit his client’s skill set.

Jackson reports it would be tricky, but not impossible, for the Dolphins to sign Jake Long and Dumervil while still having money left over for the draft and other free agent needs.

Woah.

I’ll leave the words written below just as a sort of shrine to what could have been, but here’s the simple end to what just happened: Elvis Dumervil is a free agent.

New York Jets v Denver Broncos

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“.

New York Jets v Denver Broncos

UPDATE: Elvis Dumervil is willing to restructure his contract and take a pay cut with the Broncos. They have filed a proposal with the Broncos but have yet to hear back.

 

 

According to the Denver Post, the Denver Broncos will pursue free agent DE Dwight Freeney. Freeney, a former member of the Colts and, perhaps more importantly, a former teammate of Broncos’ QB Peyton Manning, will hit the open market when NFL free agency opens on March 12.

The Broncos will only pursue Freeney if they cannot restructure current Bronco Elvis Dumervil’s contract and find a way to reduce his pay. The Broncos would rather work out a pay cut for Dumervil but they may be able to get Freeney for a much cheaper salary than they would a reduced Dumervil.
