Denver Broncos v Carolina Panthers

After failing to reach a resolution with the Denver Broncos, Elvis Dumervil has asked the team to release him before the free agent market opens tomorrow, according to the Denver Post.

Dumervil’s agent had this to say after meeting with Broncos’ chief contract negotiator Mike Sullivan:

“We’re at an impasse,” Magid said Tuesday afternoon. “There’s no animosity, whatsoever. Elvis understands this is a business. He loves the Broncos and he’d still like to come back and play for the Broncos under his current contract or restructure proposal that we sent them.

Dumervil recorded 11 sacks and forced six fumbles last season.

UPDATE: According to the Denver Post, Elvis Dumervil’s agent Marty Magid has said that the Denver Broncos have not responded to the restructuring proposal he gave them on Friday.

“Elvis has been working out, he’s healthy, he feels great,” Magid said. “He wants to stay with the Broncos. Right now, we’re waiting to hear back from them.”

This has lead to widespread speculation that Dumervil may be released or traded.

Denver Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil is set to make $12 million next season, so it comes as no surprise that the team is looking to restructure his contract to a number that’s more cap friendly. What is surprising, is that Dumervil hasn’t closed the door on the idea.

“They informed us they want to do a restructure,” Magid said during a phone interview. “I’m not classifying this as a pay cut. I’m going ahead with this being a restructure. If we can meet on some common ground, there’s a potential we can get it done. If we can’t, they’ll have to make a decision. But we’re definitely in good faith going to try to negotiate this out.

“Elvis wants to return as a Bronco if it all possible, and that’s what we’re trying to do — make the client happy and try to appease the team.”

Sometimes I feel like the deliverer of darkness in these early days of March, a time of constant posts regarding the impending unemployment of Player X, and Player Z being released because his team has determined that he’s too damn old. And you know, I’m cool with that.

So continuing a theme that’s persisted throughout much of this day as we’ve discussed the latest on Darrelle Revis, Wes Welker, and Nnamdi Asomugha, we now bring you another potentially major addition to the overflowing pool of aging yet effective pass rushers. I present to you, Elvis Dumervil.

Those who trot out fantasy’s fifth best defense every week or employ Elvis Dumervil in an IDP league are doing more frowning than smiling right now. If you’re also unfortunate enough to be a Julio Jones owner, you’re really testing that thing your parents always said about your face getting stuck in one position if you keep it there for long enough.
